How did this get started?
Social Media Camp Victoria started when Chris Burdge and Paul Holmes decided that Vancouver Island deserved to have a top-notch event where people with an enthusiasm for social media could both learn to leverage it effectively as well as talk about its effect on mainstream media, business, and society.
After extremely successful events in 2010, 2011 and 2012, #SMCamp has evolved into the premier social media event in Canada, attracting attendees from all across Canada and the USA and around the world … Mexico, Cuba, South Africa, Jordan, India, Australia, Thailand, and beyond.
