It’s the time of the year again… its Friday the 13th… time to announce Multi-Mania 09, Europe’s biggest FREE Multimedia FEST 🙂.
Multi–Mania is a two day free conference in KORTRIJK XPO, BELGIUM offering workshops and 4 tracks full of national and international speakers … I think that is kind of unique in Europe …especially because the conference doesn’t cost anything for the attendees.We want alle the multimedia folks to learn something, be inspired and get connected !
I am really proud to announce that even in an economical crisis we are able to give the multimedia community in Europe a FREE event full of interesting sessions and workshops !
The first day of the event (May 18th) will be one day full of workshops where you will be able to learn a lot from the experts. The second day (May 19th) will be the full conference like you know it from the last 9 years 😉 That means that we are expecting more then 30 spreakers from around the world who have something cool and interesting to tell about DESIGN, DEVELOPMENT, MOBILE, VIDEO/AUDIO and 3D DESIGN/DEVELOPMENT.
Of course we will also have the one and only awardshow in the evening where the best multimedia student projects will win cool prices and afterwards we can celebrate atthe 2M09 PARTY !! If you as a company want to meet the upcoming talents, the awardshow is “tha place to be” !
Last year we had more then 1000 peoples attending the event and this year we even have space for even more folks. Registration for the event is FREE and will open at April 20, so mark that date in your agenda!
Speakers will be announced very soon so make sure to check the http://www.multi-mania.be website as much as you can in the upcoming days… weeks…:-)
If you are interested in sponsoring the event or if you have something cool to talk about, do not hesitate to contact me at info [at] newmovieclip.com and I am sure we can work something out !
I am looking forward to it and I hope you also do …. 2M09 WILL ROCK !!! 😉
Yeah, we made it ! We had a deadline today at 18.00 o’clock to master our DVD for the big awardshow. In the meantime ARAL BALKAN (UK) and DAVID ALAMEDA (ES) have arrived in Kortrijk, Belgium. Tomorrow (thursday) is the day and it will really rock !
We are expecting around 800 “multimedia minded” peoples tomorrow joining the Multi-Mania event in the afternoon and the evening.
There will be a lot to discuss because Adobe just released Flex 2 and a beta for flashplayer 9, actionscript 3. I guess it will be the talk of the day and I am soo happy with that:-) Good choice from Adobe to launch flex and as3 today 🙂
So I hope everybody will enjoy it tomorrow and hope to see you all !!

Next week I will be be visiting Liverpool to meet 2 of our students who are at the moment doing their training period abroad in the UK. On tuesday we will visit John Moores University in Liverpool and ICDC. ICDC (International Centre for Digital Content) is part of Liverpool John Moores University and a world leader in digital content solutions. ICDC concentrates not just on new technology, but how it can be applied in new and exciting ways.
On Wednesday we are visiting FACT, the Foundation for Art & Creative Technology. It is the UK's leading organisation for the commissioning and presentation of film, video and new media art forms. FACT exists to inspire and promote the artistic significance of film, video and new and emerging media. I am really looking forward to this visit because they are really doing crazy stuff with multimedia at FACT.
In the time between maybe I hope we will have some time to see Liverpool city and I am sure our students will guide us to the most interesting places :-).
