Marketing community meeting in Barcelona
Please join your colleagues from throughout the OpenStack marketing ecosystem for our in-person meeting during the Barcelona Summit (time & day TBD). This meeting is structured as a conversation rather than a presentation, so we encourage you to come ready to participate and give your feedback. Key points for discussion:
OpenStack's marketing plans for 2017
Key highlights/ projects delivered and results from 2016
OpenStack's logo modernization—plans, tools and guidelines for updating to the new logo
Marketing collaborative campaign—launching "The World Runs on OpenStack" via PR, advertising and social media
Call for agenda items in Barcelona
Do you have a suggestion for what our team should discuss during our Barcelona community meeting? You can present a topic or just let us know what you’d like to discuss. Please share your ideas firstname.lastname@example.org!
