We are delighted to announce that we are sponsors of this year’s ForumCon, being held on June 19th in San Francisco. If you haven’t heard of ForumCon before, then we’re doubly excited to share the news. ForumCon is the only event dedicated to the future and business of forums and online communities, providing a platform to share tips, tools, and best practices for managing and growing forums.

Some of this year’s speakers who will be taking to the the ForumCon stage include:

  • David Spinks, CEO and Founder, CMX Summit: Currently rocking the online community sphere with CMX Summits the world over, David is a lifelong community builder, entrepreneur, and industry leader.
  • Richard Millington, Author of Buzzing Communities: Richard has helped develop over 100+ successful communities, including those for Google, The World Bank, Oracle, Amazon, Autodesk, Lego, The United Nations, Novartis, and many more.
  • Crista Bailey, CEO, Texture Media: Crista grew Texture Media from a small forum for curly hair, Naturally Curly, into a leading health and beauty company.

A new twist for this year is that the ForumCon team will let attendees both lead and join the discussion in a new unstructured “conversations about online communities” session. Bring all your questions and stresses about forums, and they will crowdsource the answers. Chances are, if you’re facing an issue, so have ten others in crowd.

ForumCon has extended a special 25% discount on tickets to Vanilla customers. Just follow this link or type in “Vanilla25” in the promotion box on Eventbrite. We hope to see you there!
