Northern Voice 2007

Northern Voice 2007

Northern Voice 2007, one of the best blogger conferences out there, takes place February 23rd and 24th at UBC Forestry Sciences Centre on the UBC campus in beautiful Vancouver, BC.

Friday night is the Moose Camp unconference, which will feature another, expanded version of the great PhotoCamp session Kris Krug started at year’s event. Of course I’m really looking forward to that one.

The main conference is on Saturday featuring a bunch of great panels and talks. Northern Voice is very affordable at CAN $30 per day (about US $26) or CAN $50 for both days (around US $43), plus it takes place in Vancouver, which is reason alone to go.

Also, as an added bonus, the Thursday night opening party will feature a presentation by Lee LeFever who, along with his wife Sachi, blogged their way around the world last year, documenting it all on The World Is Not Flat.

And although it is a weblog conference, the range of topics may involve anything that webloggers are interested in… that is, just about anything. Previous years have had plenty of geekery mixed with panels on how blogging interacts with family life, education, travel, photography, community building and establishing professional profiles. Speakers range from the big names at the top of the Technorati rankings to first-time presenters with a passion to share.

Last year was my first year at Northern Voice and I had a great time and I’m planing on returning again this year. Here’s my write-up and photos from Northern Voice 2006.

UPDATE: If you are traveling to Northern Voice 2007 from the US, don’t forget your passport.
