Community conference in Europe


(Tanya Gorbunova) #1

Hi All,
Can you recommend an interesting conference in Europe this summer?

@ale_fattorini organizes Community Leadership Summit “X” Italy.

(Richard Millington) #3

Now that’s a really broad question :slight_smile:

What kind of topics are you looking to cover? Are you most interested in meeting other people or learning something new?

@richard_millington, community related topics, customer engagement, best practices of increasing ROI. I’m looking something similar to CMX Summit, but in Europe.

@dun3buggi3, it look like it’s only in Italian

(Alessio Fattorini) #5

Yep, now it’s called Italian Community Managers Summit and yes it’s a local event Italian only.
I don’t know other events only on community management. There are some niche like:

  • FOSS backstage in Berlin (community management for OSS)
  • DevConf in London (Dev Relations)

I guess that Feverbee’s event was the last one

Yes, I think we did our last one in 2016.

They were fun to do, but they took up so much of our time and resources.

I think we usually ended up making a very small amount of money on them, but really it started to stop us doing many of the things that drive better results.

@ale_fattorini, thanks for the links.
I’ve found several more - they are mostly customer-related:

Can anybody suggest anything more?

Agreed! :smiley:

Wonder if there’s a stronger need in the several years since? Be interesting to survey maybe.
