IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ AND BRING WITH YOU TUESDAY, MAY 1ST, 2012.
First, there is a lot of Parking…however, it is a $6 charge for 12 hours and tickets are easily accessed through a number of machines on-site. Should you decide to come by Subway, you can go to the Broadview Station on the Bloor line and there is a Shuttle Bus to take you to the Evergreen Brick Works. The schedule is at Evergreen Brick Works web site…
When you arrive at the Brick Works you will head to the Young Welcome Centre for registration (make sure you bring your ticket/tickets with you and are linked below), just follow the sandwich boards for REBarCampTO. There will be a continental breakfast supplied by our caterer Daniel et Daniel and coffee, water, etc. available all day. There will also be a bag lunch provided during the noon-time break and we encourage you to take a look at the facilities and the Parks that surround the Brick Works. Hopefully, it will be a sunny warm day but even if not, there are lots of canopied spaces that can be enjoyed. There are seven great spaces for discussions. Always be thankful and courteous to our Volu nteers…they are your colleagues and attendees as well.
Registration and Breakfast/Networking begin at 8:30 am in the Young Welcome Centre (feel free to be earlier). There at 9:15 am, we will welcome you all and give you the last minute news. The sessions will start at 9:30 and be 45 minutes long with a 15 minute break for refreshing and changing rooms. We will break at Lunch with Bag lunches available in the Young Welcome Centre. This year there is also a sit down Restaurant onsite since last year, however that is not included in your $25.00 ticket…
There is a schedule up on the website that will be added to and changed during the day. You can access it from any mobile device on its’ browser. We will try to keep it up-to-date but technology is known for it’s glitches so keep refreshing the screens . Brings tons of business cards and set your sites on meeting and talking to at least 10-15 new people.
For those facilitating or wanting to: please email Evan Sage at email@example.com. He is our schedule Meister. For all: please remember that this is not a selling event and if you are feeling that someone is selling you a product rather than sharing knowledge and faciltating discussion, you have every right to walk out…
You are there to SHARE, PARTICIPATE and LEARN so please avoid being a session “Kamakaze” and take over the discussions. More experienced attendees should remember that they were once Newbies. Leaders, please make sure that common phrases that you may use should be able to be understood by all…
There is Wi-Fi available throughout and the wifi is Evergreen Guest and the password is DQw9@n4Q. The Twitter Hastag for the event is #rebcto.
Carbon Computing will be on site with a “Genius Bar” including some of their staff, so should you have hands-on questions about your Apple products please see them.
For those of you who do not have one yet, we have an iPad, 3rd Generation that will be available to be drawn. David Pylp has agreed to be our Carnie-extraordinaire for the draw. The funds will go to the Ontario REALTORS Care Foundation.
For obvious reasons there will be a lot of focus this year on iPads and iPhones, as well as multiple browsers. Please&nb sp;feel free to bring your tools… John DiMichele from TREB will be there in the afternoon to answer questions and thoughts about the new Stratus and the Apps..
We have two out-of-town special guests: Amy Chorew and Teri Conrad. Their 411 is on the website if you want to read it and get to know them a bit…
Remember that an REBarCampTO also depends on the energy that you, the attendee adds to it! You and Our Sponsors make this event possible. At every chance you have, if you see a Sponsor, thank them profusely please…
