A Tale of Charlotte’s Web and Charlotte’s Rain

Industry Observer

Well sort of… more like a tale of Charlotte’s RainCamp to be more precise.

This Thursday, October 28, it will be Charlotte, North Carolina’s turn to host RainCamp and I can’t wait!  Yes, I have attended RainCamp in the past, but RainCamp does not stay static.  Jon Washburn, Bob Stewart, Kerrie Greenhalgh and Ben Kinney, along with a cast of several keep it light fresh and informative, adapting lessons learned and changes to the competitive landscape, so if you’ve attended before, plan and coming again.  I will be there… and I want to meet you!

The Queen City’s own Debe Maxwell has been actively promoting the event and has helped organize a Wednesday evening get together for those of us coming in early.  There is so much that comes from attending RainCamp… great content to help you build your business delivered ActiveRain style, combined with the rare opportunity to meet and network with your favorite AR Bloggers live and in person.

Here’s the 4-1-1  (a/k/a RainCamp Charlotte Details):

Every time I network with an ActiveRain blogger I come away with more ideas to build or improve my business development efforts.  After RainCamp Dallas I had more ideas than I could implement at one time.  Come see what ideas you can come away with from RainCamp Charlotte!

I think Charlotte will be the best RainCamp to date.  Cutting edge ideas and Southern Hospitality make for a great combination.  I am inspired by a line from E.B, White’s classic, Charlotte’s Web, when I say about RainCamp Charlotte that “All RainCamps are equal… but some are more equal than others!”

Sounds like so much fun but I can't make this one.  I'm hoping Raincamp will be coming my way soon.

Big regrets that I was unable to attend in Dallas.  I guess you are not the Henry Kessinger of Active Rain.

I am coming! Can't wait!  And I got my room  at the Blake for a mere $68 on Travelocity.  (Minus taxes and fees).  If anyone is going and wants to  know how to bid on Travelocity, I am more than happy to share!

Sounds like a great time, and I was sooooo close to going.  Charlotte is not a bad drive from Maryland (less than 6 hours) and I'll bet it will be beautiful at this time of year.  Going to Agent Reboot in DC instead.

Charlotte is jussssst a little too far from DC. But, I'm sure it will be a blast. On another note, GO GIANTS. Sorry, Steve.

Steve, just trying to figure how far it is from you, and it is far. Are you also driving, like so many others, or flying there?
