Barcamps and REBarcamps aren’t typically very structured events. Attendees normally flock together the day-of and outline a series of discussion topics for the day. Sure it might sound a little chaotic and unorganized but actually, it kinda works out really well! Most folks are really passionate about what they’re doing and are openly willing to share and collaborate with others. 

But anyway, for Real Estate Barcamp Los Angeles, we want to add a little bit of structure for a few reasons…

  • A lot of novice web 2.0 users aren’t very familiar with the Barcamp format. By adding somewhat of an agenda we’ll be able to answer the “what’s in it for me?” (WIIFM) question that people are asking and thereby drive attendance.
  • We’ll still stick to the traditional multi-session format but by adding a little bit of structure we’ll be able to accommodate both the novice web 2.0 marketers as well as the advanced web 2.0 users. 
We’re NOT going to set the agenda for the whole day. No! What we’re going to do is organize a 2-4 hour novice track where we’ll cover blogging basics, social networking basics, etc. and still have the rest of the day adhere to the traditional barcamp model. Our goal is to accommodate every type of attendee and really make it a content-driven event that everyone is interested in participating in.
