Possible the first global architecture, construction and facilities management meeting.  June 16th 2009

One year ago an idea to create a network that would explore the use of web technology and social media within the world of the built environment sustainability was born.

Since then be2camp (that’s be, from built environment, 2 from web 2 and camp from the barcamp approach to events) has held physical events, created an online forum for discussion with over 150 members and generated numerous spin off discussions, groups and events around the world

To mark the anniversary, a series of ,tweetups, are being held around the world as an opportunity for people connected with design, construction, facilities management, PR. Web and IT and more to meet chat and network.

We are delighted that the New Continental in Preston will host such an event.

So if you are in any way connected with the world of the built environment or social media, come along on the 16th June between 6 and 8pm.

Look forward to seeing you there.
