Final update: get ready for Web Camp Belgium – 24 January 2011

We’re almost there: next Monday we are welcoming Scott Hanselman, Drew Robbins and Gill Cleeren for the first Web Camp Belgium.

The event is fully booked, so praise yourself lucky if you got a seat. If you didn’t, no need to worry, we also have some very good news for anyone who’s not able to make it in person: the whole event can be watched through a live stream.

Here’s the practical information:

  • Live stream URL, will be live before 9AM on January 24th:
  • In-person event address: Business Faculty, St. Lendriksborre 6 / Font Saint Landry 6, Brussels. Watch your mailbox for your confirmation and more information.
  • On-demand session viewing: expect the sessions to be online before February on Channel 9 Belux
  • Don’t hesitate to use Twitter to mix the offline with the online: put up your pictures, comments and ideas throughout the day. We are using #webcampbe on Twitter.

Some good resources to prepare for the event:
