A few weeks ago I was twittering about organizing a Twestival for the Iasi twitter-ers. Well, yesterday, since we had a blogmeet and therefore an opportunity to talk about this, we (me, @DanielDamian, @Haipa and a few more) agreed to make it real. So we created @iasitwest, the Iasi Twestival twitter profile which you can follow here. Currently we are trying to establish a date and find a place to held this event. Since we already have 38 followers in a few hours I am tempted to think that we will have an attendance of 50 to 70 persons minimal. That means we need a pretty large location. We were talking about Havana (close to the Universiy in Copou) but we might have a problem due to the 2 floors. I am thinking about going for a much larger room with plenty of space for socializing. We could try to go for the hallway of CCS (Casa de Cultura a Studentilor) but that means we have to bring our own drinks and snacks and that means finding some sponsors or having a fund raising effort in the previous week.
Anyway, because one of our friends is out of town from the 19th of february till th 23rd, I think it would be unfair to have this event in that period, and since sooner than the 19th it would be too close, I find it reasonable to have it on the 27th or 28th of February.
About what will happen there … I honestly don’t know yet. I think out main objective is offline networking. Other than that, I think we should have a series of subjects to discuss so this meeting will have a real purpose. We could talk about how to use twitter for CSR campaigns, how we can help Iasi by using twitter and of course how to use twitter in advertising campaigns. Of course, I think we should also have a theme party and I am waiting for propositions. So … follow @iasitwest and stay close to us.
