Ideas on Tap is a light business networking event for hi-tech professionals in Vancouver plus internet advertisers, social media marketers, bloggers, video game developers and other fans of the tech community.
These free events feature a competition where 5 contestants deliver a 60 second pitch, idea, recruiting message, or elevator pitch from a milk crate. This could be talking about their company, a start-up idea, new technology, hiring, or raising capital. The audience will vote for their 2 favourite pitches and prizes will be awarded.
The June 2009 Ideas on Tap was held at the famed Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver and was presented by Elastic Path Software. The Commodore is a new venue for Ideas on Tap as it was previously held at the Yaletown Brewing Company. Says event organizer Chris Breikss;
"We listened to everybody's feedback and we concluded that the previous venue was not big enough to host the 300 plus attendees. People want to be able to walk around and easily meet and chat with people. The Commodore Ballroom is 9000 square feet which should allow for 600-700 people to interact comfortably."
