that’s global

The premise for <head> is simple: instead of making you come to the web conference, let’s make the web conference come to you.

<head> is a web conference with all of the traditional elements. We have live speakers, presentations, question and answer sections, and networking opportunities. The twist is that the conference takes place everywhere — all over the world — and at real-world gatherings called local conference hubs.

And we use the Internet to tie it all together.

and green.

<head> is an environmentally-friendly web conference.

We save on tons of emissions by avoiding flights and having speakers and attendees interact with the conference locally.

<head> is social,

We have not lost sight of the key aspects that we love about conferences: the social interactions, the conversations, the sense of community, the exchange of knowledge, and the forging of new friendships and opportunities.

We are building these into our online community where attendees and non-attendees alike can interact before, during, and after the conference.

so get involved!

Attendees and speakers can participate in the conference from the comfort of their own homes or surrounded by others at local conference hubs around the world.

Local conference hubs are real-world, local gatherings supported by local venue sponsors (like Yahoo! in London, and the BBC in Manchester) and local community groups such as Adobe User Groups.

Local conference hubs make the conference truly global in scope and inject it with the real-world social element that is so crucial to a successful conference.

We run on solid technology

<head> is interactive experience that happens live, over the Internet, via Adobe Flash. All you need to interact with and experience the conference is a high-speed Internet connection, a modern browser, and the Flash Player (or just attend a local conference hub).

Courtesy of our Platinum Sponsor and Technology Partner, Adobe, we will be using an Adobe Connect Pro cluster capable of supporting 20,000 simultaneous connections during the conference.
