Kiwano Marketing: Vancouver to Host Canada's First FreelanceCamp on May 29th

Community-Driven 'Unconference' Connecting Freelancers, Partners & Customers

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 28, 2010) - Do you own your own business or are looking to start one? Are you a consultant or contractor? Service-based freelancers of all kinds, rejoice — you're no longer alone. FreelanceCamp Vancouver is rolling into town.

Over the last two years, FreelanceCamps have been organized to connect and engage both new and experienced freelancers with potential employers and partners, and examine the many issues and challenges associated with the explosive growth of the freelance market.

Due to the enormous success of FreelanceCamps across the US, Vancouver is hosting the first ever FreelanceCamp in Canada on May 29th, and registration to the event is now open.

FreelanceCamp Vancouver
May 29, 2010, from 9am - 5pm
The Network Hub
422 Richards Street
Vancouver, BC V6B 2Z4

Register at http://freelancecamp.thenetworkhub.ca.

The sessions, nominated and chosen by participants across all areas of expertise, will focus on topics ranging from how to set up a consultancy and use marketing to attract clients, to business ethics and accounting for "solopreneurs." FreelanceCamp's relaxed environment encourages discussion, interaction and the open exchange of ideas.

"Freelancing is an empowering option reality in these difficult economic times, and there's every indication that this hiring model has an enduring appeal for all kinds of businesses," said Minna Van, founding partner of The Network Hub and chair of the FreelanceCamp organizing committee.

"FreelanceCamp is an ideal networking platform to bring together like-minded people with tremendous creativity and expertise, and organizations who would greatly benefit from this talent pool. And because this is, in many ways, an emerging way of doing business, it's also an opportunity for discussion, collaboration and learning. We're very excited to be hosting Canada's first-ever event of its kind."

Registration to FreelanceCamp is just $10 with the proceedings going to charity. For more information, or to register for the event, visit the event website at http://freelancecamp.thenetworkhub.ca, and follow Vancouver FreelanceCamp on twitter at @604freelancers.
