Planning the DigitalFilipino and Bloggers Networking Events in 2009

I am now in the process of fixing our calendar for the DigitalFilipino 2009 Roadshow where we intend to visit a minimum of 16 locations in and outside of Metro Manila throughout the year. However, to be able to pinpoint the target places and get the word out, we need to know if you will be interested to attend in case we will go to your location.

I will very much appreciate if you can fill-up this DigitalFilipino Roadshow 2009 form so we can plan effectively and keep in touch. I look forward in hearing from you.

The Club will be a having get-together this November 20 Thursday from 6 to 10 pm. I already e-mailed our club members about the venue. This will be our last one for the year.

Program as follows:

  • Website competitiveness evaluation lessons learned in the Web Awards.
  • E-Learning program updates (e-commerce, Internet marketing, blogging, etc.)
  • Plans for next year - 2009.
    • A lot of suggestions have been given to us such as being involved in 3 major events. The 1st one coming up is E-Services Philippines (February 2009). We have three services that will be launched at this time and will give you a snapshot.
    • Filipino Internet User Report 2009
      Some of you have been inquiring whether we have plans of updating our 2003 report on this topic. We've done a 1000 user face-to-face survey before and yes it can be done. However, this would require resource pooling and would like to put this on the table upfront.
    • Club and Bloggers Networking event nationwide
    • Suggestions on programs that we can undertake that will benefit the business interest of club members shall be discussed too.
7:00 - 7:20 presentation
