Last June 26th CiviCRM participated in OpenExpo Day Madrid, one of the biggest events of Free and Open Source Software held this year.
 

Networking area 

Partially funded with the available Marketing BudgetiXiam represented CiviCRM with a small booth (a table with a rollup) at the networking section. Some people approached us in the networking section with very interesting questions interested in CiviCRM!
 
 

CiviCRM Session and Demo

We started the day presenting CiviCRM to an audiende of 20+. It was the first session of the day and we presented an overview of CiviCRM also with an interactive demo. The audience was a mix of people from Non Profits, Charities, Foundations, Political Parties and other Third Sector organizations.
 
 

CRM Roundtable

We were invited to the specific Open Source CRM roundtable where we shared experiences with SugarCRM and vTiger.
 
 

Community Leadership Summit

At the end of the day we also participated in the first Community Leadership Summit held in Spain. This was a very enlightening session about community management and metrics. The session was led by Bitergia and we shares experiences with Christian Müler from Typo3.

Hey Alejandro, great work promoting CiviCRM - thanks!

Just wanted to re-iterate for people that a marketing budget (wiki.civicrm.org/confluence/display/CRM/Marketing+Budget+Guideliness) is available to support organisations that want to promote CiviCRM at events and it other wasys. It should be win win for your organisation and CiviCRM.

If you know of conferences and other events where CiviCRM should have a presence (regardless of whether you can attend them or not) please add them to this wiki page: http://wiki.civicrm.org/confluence/display/CRM/External+conferences
