17th March 19:00 Preston TweetUp+GeekUp

Due to the Preston Tweetup happening on Tuesday 17th March, we decided
we would move GeekUp a day and combine the events! Please be aware
that you need a ticket, see the eventbrite link below

Tuesday 17th March, 7pm

New Continental pub
South Meadow Lane
Preston, Lancashire PR1 8JP
United Kingdom

The first Preston Tweetup is set to be held on Tuesday 17th March 2009
at the New Continental in their ‘Snug’ area. It's being held in
association with Stage 9 Marketing our official sponsors.
A tweetup is where people come together, bring along their wi-fi
enabled laptop and/or mobile phone and meet other people. People also
twitter during the course of the night, so even if you can’t make it
you can see what’s happening and contribute, by following

At Preston Tweetup we’re going to be discussing ‘How can the web can
be used in Preston Guild 2012?’ As the last Guild was held in 1992 and
back then broadband and widespread laptop ownership was a twinkle in a
very rich man’s eye.
Wi-fi access will be provided free of charge.
The plan for the night is to start around 7 PM, allow half an hour for
drinking and making the wireless access work. At 7.30 PM we’ll
introduce the night’s topic and then break off into smaller groups to
brainstorm (you’ll be allocated a number as you arrive) and then
around 8.30 PM one person will feedback to everyone what their group
came up with. The rest of the night will be free for socialising, idea
bouncing and networking.

We’re also running a competition for Preston Blog readers to design
the Preston Tweetup logo.
