Over the coming 12 months, we're building some BHW events in London UK then other major cities around the world following up on the first one held earlier this month-

Who's in?
What format would you enjoy.
Focussed talks or just hanging out.?
Any preferred venues?
After work or full days?

Like or comment below - if you want to be kept in the loop follow this subforum or sign up to the events newsletter here (note use the preference center in the first message).

If you have any ideas, comments or suggestions feel free to reach out directly to @BHWEvents

Who is @BHWEvents ?

Not an SEO - doesn't do digital - but hosts a mean party!

Coming into the BHW team to build the physical meetup space outside of our virtual world @BHWEvents will head up all our events going forward. If you want to be kept informed of future events then follow the @BHWEvents (check out our article on how to watch threads and follow people here) account.

Since we got such a wide range of talent on the forum, it would be a lot of fun to do a hackathon, from morning to evening.

Everyone who's interested write what they are good at doing (for example content writing, design, monetizing, coding, social media, SEO etc), and build teams based on that.

One guy sits and design, the content writer types away, SEO guy is already gathering list for guest post outreach, social media guy is setting up all profiles and working on growth tactics - etc etc.

Genuinely believe that with the right people and a shitton of work, you can set up a profitable website in a day. Also a very good learning experience if anything, and a lot of fun!

I have heard Glasgow is a great place for these types of events :)

On a serious note, sounds like a great idea to me, I think the more events and specifically the more locations they are held at the better. For me an all day event or evening event would work and I would like to see talks from industry innovators, talks from prominent members of blackhatworld and maybe even team building programs or something like that (depending on what you have in mind when it comes to size of event and target audience for the event).

And ultimately, for me personally I see the main benefit as being able to meet and get to know some of the members of blackhatworld - so creating an environment where everyone can be relaxed and get to know each other would be key.

- I am in.
- I don't know what you mean by what Format. I think the hangout in London last month would be a cool Thing.
- Hanging
- Bars or resturant would be cool, maybe after that we can go to a Club or something LOL
- Either is fine (after work or full day)

By the way, Germany meetup would be great :p

Love the idea!

I think it should be a conference with chosen topic/speakers...

Meeting rooms for networking and hanging out,

And a good AFTERPARTY

India does sound very interesting, I would defiantly go!

It's all going to be built As demand dictates. Early stages right now but all part of building BHW into an even greater community. Feedback into the thread and it will all be taken onboard.

Great Idea.

Depending on what the goal of these are, what you can do (what's also being done in certain other niches) is make team leaders for cities so these events can be held all across the globe without needing to invest much time & money to fly the UK team out to each location.

Perhaps initially a UK baed team member (or more) could be flown out to each city to meet & decide on local team leaders (& train them) and then later on it would be held without much help & investment needed from the UK-based stuff, saving you time, money & manpower while growing and building a stronger community at the same time.

From my prior experience, partnered with several BHW members and every partnership has literally been an incredible & profitable partnership on top of the crazy experiences & new knowledge learned from each of them (& hopefully given, as well). On top of that, becoming good friends with them & other BHW members that are non-partners. I some-what accidentally became a neighbor with my BHW ex-business partner 1.5 years ago lol, we both lived on the 25th floor, good times.


Interesting to see how this turns out, best of luck.

Luka

I wouldn't mind having one here in the states. My area has the annual Contently event - drawing in the largest and brightest in the digital marketing industry. Would be cool to see a Black Hat event to balance out the perspectives. Hit me up Damien if this interests you!
