– BARCAMP BERLIN  –

WHAT ACTUALLY IS A BARCAMP?

 

Barcamps are often referred to as “unconference”. The reason for this is the clear difference between a classic conference or meeting and this modern form of business events. In the case of a conference, the event program is determined by the organizers before the event and then implemented comparatively specifically according to the planning. The organizers select speakers, plan the program and ensure that it runs as smoothly as possible for the benefit of the participants and program co-creators.

The Barcamp, on the other hand, is much more flexible right from the start: Instead of being limited to a classic frontal program, all participants are right in the middle of it according to their individual wishes and skills instead of just being there. In the Barcamp, the organizers first provide a rough framework for the main topic, which is jointly developed by all willing participants during the start of the Barcamp. In fact, there are almost exclusively participants at a bar camp. They are actively involved in the planning of discussion groups, finding topics under the umbrella of the main topic, lectures and workshops. You support the course of the event and participate in the success of the event from content to implementation.

THE BARCAMP - YOUR SUCCESSFUL NETWORK EVENT

A successful bar camp brings you and your participants together with new people. The barcamp mostly serves to translate the varied exchange on a topic from the social media areas into real life. In addition to imparting knowledge and exchanging ideas, the goals are modern win-win situations that turn acquaintances into successful business and interest relationships and support the participants in networking.

But can’t such successes also be achieved through conferences or classic business events? We think that this is only partially possible with this efficiency. A successful barcamp goes far beyond classic business events and allows the connection of contacts in a new, active way thanks to the special conception of the barcamps. Thus, barcamps can create unusual synergies, facilitate the establishment and maintenance of contacts and inspire new ways of cooperation. The barcamp differs from the classic business event in terms of fun, activity, individuality and versatility.

BARCAMP: LEARNING WITH AND FROM EACH OTHER

IMPRESSIONS

EXCHANGE OF KNOWLEDGE AT EYE LEVEL

This openness and the flexibility to be able to adapt to the wishes and suggestions of the participants distinguish a Barcamp from other business events. The content-related spectrum is expanded topic by topic by the specific needs of the participants, the intensive exchange at eye level is advanced and the wishes of the Barcamp participants are directly incorporated into the implementation. In a well-organized barcamp, it may be possible that a current topic that concerns the participants is included in the event topics at short notice because a participant has the technical expertise and spontaneously shares his knowledge with the group in the barcamp.
