MobileYouth virtual meeting in Habbo Hotel.

To promote the launch of mobileYouth06 – part two, Wireless World Forum and the mobileYouth06 team holding their first ever virtual mobileYouth networking event in the popular youth hangout – the UK branch of Habbo Hotel!

Helen Keegan the organiser of Swedish Beers and Innovation, the host of several carnival of mobilists and founder of beep marketing has been blogging about this event and it seems she will be “virtually” attending.

on Friday, I’ve been invited to join the w2forum networking event. But it’s not just any old networking bash, it’s a virtual one, being held in Habbo Hotel. If you’d like to join the virtual networking bash, find out about the new Mobile Youth report and ask the writers and analysts any questions you might have about mobile youth, then come join us. All you have to do is sign up to Habbo Hotel (it’s free), log in on Friday between 2pm and 4pm BST and look for the guest room “mobileYouth”. Jan and his colleagues Savka and Nick will be there and hopefully a few other (virtual) grown-ups wanting to talk about things mobile and things youth.

In the meantime, you might want to listen to the latest podcast from the W2forum team.

Having never attended a virtual event I think I might try and join this one just to understand the dynamics of a virtual event and to see if it is less or more successful than one in the real world. So far it has three bonus points, my travel expenses, commuting time and entry fees are zero.

Date: Friday 27th October

Time: 14:00-16:00 BST

Venue: Habbo Hotel UK – search for the “mobileYouth networking” guest room
