TAL Unconference

We are going to be holding the first Talk About Local Unconference in Stoke-on-Trent on Saturday 3rd October. We are proud to announce that the Unconference is being hosted by Staffordshire University Faculty of Arts, Media & Design in the film theatre which is a very short walk from the railway station.

Directions to the campus can be found here

Stoke is easily accessible from most rail routes, the M6 and even canal.

The conference is not for you to come and be comatised by web 2.0 marketeers telling you how you can monetize 24/365 relationships or transition viral ROI it is for real people, running real hyperlocal sites to network with people who are doing the same thing.

The thing people say to us most when we are talking about Talk About Local (and you may have noticed we love to talk about it!) is ‘I didn’t know anyone else was doing this’  so we are giving you the chance to meet up with all the other people who you didn’t know were doing the same as you!

The format is going to be Unconference, fun, relaxed and informal.    As well and the unconference event, we will be holding social media surgeries where you can come along and speak to friendly developers and experts to get advice about your site or how to fix that niggling problem you just can’t seem to get your head around.

The best bit is it’s free! Yes FREE!

But there is no such thing as a free lunch I hear you cry.

Well actually there is because we will even feed you during the day!

Please click HERE and fill in our very simple pre registration form and we’ll add you to our mailing list, as soon as we have the venue confirmed we’ll drop you a mail with all the details.

  1. AboutMyArea is looking forward to attending this unconference !

    went to something similar in Sunderland last year under the Digital Challenge / IT in the Community banner – was really useful.

  2. Will the event be accessible for disabled people? I wish to attend but will need British Sign Language Interpretation? Thanks.

  3. I’m really looking forward to meeting other ultralocal bloggers and exchanging views and tips.
