It happens here: Consumer-centric Innovation in Charlotte and beyond


Upcoming (and past) events about new ideas in Charlotte by Nheeda Enriquez

I’m highlighting two events that focus on Charlotte folks sharing (pitching?) their innovative ideas for everyone else to absorb.

1.  The Charlotte chapter of the American Marketing Association (CAMA) is hosting a Donny Deutsch-style “Big Idea” meeting at Dilworth Grill on Oct. 20th at 6pm.  The panelists include some local heavyweights:

• Julie Rose (Moderator): WFAE News Team
• Louis J. Foreman: founder and chief executive, Enventys
• Winn Madrey: executive vice president, Topics Education
• Jim Bailey: founder, CEO and president, Red Moon Marketing

2.  The second is BarCamp Charlotte, over at Area15 in NoDa on October 17th, all day.  BarCamps have become known as an “unconferences” where sessions are decided on the day of the event and an open-source mentality is required.  (I’ve never been to one before, so I’m looking forward to it.)

Finally, I’m just now getting around to it, but the SocialFresh folks posted some post-conference material from their Charlotte social media event back in August for those of us who didn’t get to sign up in time!  There’s a lot of interesting stuff in there, check out Spike Jones’ presentation on movements vs. campaigns.
