Organize a WT | Wearable Technologies Picnic in Your City!
The goal of WT | Picnic is to have one day a year were the entire world of wearable tech lovers gather and share simple conversations and ideas. To do this, we ask as many organizers from around the globe host a picnic in their city. Each organizer is a volunteer that plans a place and time on the day of the event. Each organizer has specific duties to fulfill, please see below for the entire list.
General tasks for Organizers:
- Defining a suitable space and time within the local area for attendees to meet and greet. The space should either be for free or sponsored by a suitable partner (contact us if you are unsure what a suitable partner might be). If the weather allows it should preferably be organized outdoors. WT will not cover any costs but can recommend potential sponsors. Please make sure that there are no legal issues in your area with regards to number of people attending the gathering.
- Invite people from your local community that are working, experimenting, or buying wearable products, IoT, or enabling tech. These people will join you for a fun and insightful gathering within your city. WT will support you with a communication package including (an invite, a banner and our logo files) to facilitate the invitation process.
- The organizers contact details: Name, organization, headshot photo, and contact email address will be listed on our website for interested people to get in touch.
- The overall activity around WT | picnic is a volunteer endeavor. You may not use your event to make money but you can have a sponsor covering your potential expenses – in kind sponsoring is preferred.
- Inform attendees that everyone should treat the picnic like a potluck. Meaning attendees and organizers make a dish or drink to share with the participants of the event.
- Organizers are asked to share the list of attendees with WT after the event and a few pictures, or a short video for our after event coverage.
- WT will send a WT | picnic Starter Kit to every organizer. (Please let us know your address).
- Branding: Please call your event WT | Picnic <your city> (WT | Picnic London). You can add a byline below this title (i.e. sponsored by company XYZ) but please consult the WT team first for final approval.
- As a Thank You for organizing, WT will provide all organizers with a complimentary conference pass to one of the infamous WT | Wearable Technologies Conferences in the season of 2016 of the organizers choice.
