What is BarCamp Bournemouth?

A BarCamp is often referred to as an unconference. They are inclusive, participatory based, user generated events. There are no set talks or keynotes, any attendee can contribute to the BarCamp by giving a talk on the day, with no prior notice, on any topic that they wish. This means that BarCamps have a diverse and exciting range of talks at every event, with something for everyone and if there isn’t a talk that you wish to attend (which is unlikely) – you can put one on yourself, someone else is always interested!

It is by no means mandatory to give a talk at a Barcamp, however it is highly encouraged that everyone gives it a go.

Therefore if you know of anyone who could sponsor us then please ask them to take a look at our sponsors page and get in touch.
