Travel the world from our hub in Manchester, kicking off in Asia and following the sun to Europe and the Americas. Cities include Sendai, Japan; Istanbul, Turkey; Sao Paulo, Brazil; Vancouver, Canada.
Drop by one of the five venues around the world, and chat with people in the other international cities using the Talking Boxes scattered through the public bar and cafe areas. For those of you taking the full plunge, dive into the globe-spinning, head-spinning inspiration space of the GloNet Conference. In Manchester or Sao Paulo, step into the living room lovingly created within the venue, sit on a comfortable armchair, and see someone on the other side of the globe magically transported into the chair next to you.
Live events in five cities use experimental formats to bring real and virtual audiences together around a central theme through talks, performances, an art installation and networked social spaces, all in one day and spanning five time zones. In each participating city we have a venue and remote groups, and we are networking social spaces, both physical and virtual.
The focal point in 2010 is the Conference. In Manchester the GloNet hub is Contact, Oxford Road.
