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.
