MediaCampLA Venues – What do we need/want/desire?

Being guided by the all important cliche that “you don’t get what you don’t ask for”, here are some notes on what would make a perfect venue for MediaCampLA. That fact is, no venue is perfect, but there are a few things that make organizing and running the unconference day easier.

The Dianne G. Van Hook University Center at College of Canyons, where I co-chair CareerCampSCV (happening July 16), meets most of these criteria and works very well for an unconference event. You could certainly use that space as a guideline of what works well.

  • Open WiFi ccess
  • 1 large Lobby/Hangout room for sign-ins, opening session, lunch, closing session and ad hoc breakout sessions
  • 4-6 rooms with
    • seating
    • projectors
    • white boards/chalkboards
    • All rooms best if they are on the same floor
  • Nice blank wall or white board to host schedule board for the day
  • Large and easily accessible bathrooms
  • Parking (free, hopefully)
  • Access to Mass Transit (i.e. subway, bus, rail)

Thanks in advance to anyone who has a venue to offer or a suggestion of someone we should contact!
