Super Meet Up in June

Blake Whitman
May 15, 2008 by Blake Whitman Alum

So I already posted a preliminary rumor of this event in the forums, but I wanted to confirm that we are actually organizing a super sweetacular meet up in NYC for the weekend of June 27th.

This event will be the first of its kind for Vimeo and we're VERY excited about it.

So far we have a few events planned, the most notable being a large party to be hosted at the IAC headquarters using their HUGE video wall. There will be performances, screenings, and a chance to mingle with the staff and fellow Vimeo users.

The remainder of the weekend will consist of optional community building activities such as group lip dubs, short video contests, and some other fun stuff.

So save the date and come on down to NYC June 27th!

We will give more information in a few weeks, including creating a Group around the event when we launch Groups.

You rock for the timing - I'll only be in NYC for a few days while on vacation, but TA-DA Vimeo meetup while I'm there. Score.

Cameron Christopher PRO

Augh, wish I could come. Dear Chicagoans, let's super lip dub as well on the 4th of July weekend.

Raphaël

this website is very cool because it is available worldwide (thanks to internet).
The trip from France to new york would be a great idea but too far for my budget.
Good idea and thanks for having created vimeo!!

Vision One Films

won't you be 'working' the event, uh-ummm miss Intern?

Caroline Martin

Oh, I'll be "working" the event, alright. Working it like your mom. Last night.

BobbyG

omg! posalooty! dig your sense of humor. so awesome.

Vision One Films

I didn't mean that kind of 'working it', I meant that you would not be there as a guest-rather, as a Vimeo staff-

Caroline Martin

Heehee, yeah, I guess so! I wonder what they'll have me doing?

Caroline Martin

Hey! I didn't know you were an apprentice, too. Sweet!

Vision One Films

Congrats Casey D, Posalootly, I am very excited for the both of you-you must do a video journal!

Casey Donahue Alum

mike ambs

Ahh :( I just checked prices from LAX to NY and the cheapest I can find is $440... I wanna be there. I must find a way...

Daniel Hayek Alum

or try and jump on a private jet flight, sometimes it works if you just show up at the airport and offer some dough for gas, seriously.

Karen Abad Plus

Mike, let's gather everyone from CA and get on our magic carpet and float along to NYC...hahah.

Dan Huston

Karen - I have a magic carpet that I'll fed-ex to you!

Lisa Kassner PRO

How much fun is this? I would love it if you could bring such an activity here to Los Angeles, California...

Jan van der Meer Global-DVC.NL Plus

Global-DVC Holland here. Love to come (without the HD lion), but who can offer accomodation for two, in NYC near IAC headquarters in exchange for a later free stay in Zandvoort Holland near the beach and our HD studio and close to Amsterdam? Mail studio@Global-DVC.NL

Vision One Films
