Promotional products marketing expert Heidi Thorne, founder of Thorne Communications and the PromoWithPurposeToday.com blog, posted a guest blog on Event Camp East Coast for the Planet Planit: The Event Planners Oracle, an event planning blog in the United Kingdom. The focus of the blog was to show how Event Camp East Coast 2010 made greener choices for certain aspects of their conference.
Event Camp East Coast was a conference of event industry professionals from the #eventprofs community on Twitter. The conference was held November 12-13, 2010 in Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania. Thorne Communications was one of the conference sponsors.
Thorne Communications, a promotional products marketing firm, sponsored Event Camp East Coast (ECEC10), November 12-13, 2010, held in Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania. Event Camp workshops are in-person conferences of the #eventprofs community of event and tradeshow professionals on Twitter and focus on experimental meeting formats and technologies. ECEC10 focused on using an “unconference” peer session meeting format.
“We were glad to sponsor and promote Event Camp East Coast because we are active in and want to support the #eventprofs community,” says Heidi Thorne, president and founder of Thorne Communications and the PromoWithPurposeToday.com blog. “The Event Camp East Coast organizers were also interested in going greener, making it a good fit with our company’s values.” Part of Thorne Communications’ sponsorship and promotion included providing recycled material tote bags for event attendees.
