Humans need to connect.
It’s what we do.
From fire we made smoke signals and on the internet we’ve
built remarkable communication tools to connect with one
When connected individuals coalesce around an inspired
idea, movements happen. Today’s tools are most powerful
when the movement is authentic—when we build meaningful
communities both online and off—and when we recognize
our unique relationship with technology while leveraging it to
make big things happen.

Communities driven by a common purpose build tribes.

Welcome to TribeCon.
TribeCon is a conference packed
full of inspiring and educational
presentations by world-renowned
panelists—all focused around
building communities online, and
leveraging those communities to
accomplish amazing things in the
real world.
“What better place to talk about
Community than New Orleans? There’s
tech people here, social media people,
marketing people, advertising, school
teachers, people that run non-profits. All
sorts of people are coming here together
to learn about the tools that we use online
to create communities, and it’s awesome.”

“In the Silicon Bayou, the tech community
in New Orleans is paying their dues.
They’re bootstrapping. They’re doing
little experiments. They’re proving. And
they’re embracing change. And that is
what is going to lead to a great tech
community and cool conference in the
next years for all of us.”
“We had lunch, appropriately, at the world’s longest
picnic table, kind of a communal table the whole tribe
was gathered at. And then there’s the concert tonight.
The cliché is the great conversations happen in the
hallway, well we’re out in the park here.”

“TribeCon to me is just as much a party as it is a

conference. Right? It feels like a family gathering
to me. We’re all sharing ideas and exchanging
ideas and to me, that’s the best part about

Taylor.Davidson Narratively
“Under a pink and yellow big top dubbed the
Bingo Tent, about 200 bloggers, technology
entrepreneurs and social media enthusiasts
wearing name tags bearing both their names
and Twitter aliases came together Thursday to
kick off a small conference that local economic
development officials hope will produce big
TribeCon 2009, a first-year technology
conference operating in tandem to this year's
Voodoo Music Experience, was created to
bring together creative professionals in person
to discuss a variety of topics including online
marketing and social media's role in
emergency preparedness.”

“If you find yourself going to a lot of conferences like I do, you end up getting an idea like it’s
always the same people and it’s always the same ideas. This totally transforms that. Tribe Con is
so different. It looks at what a conference could have been like and ways in which it could have
been totally mediocre, normal, and boring, and it turns them all around. There is a lot of stuff
people can connect to emotionally. That’s why Tribe Con is memorable.”

Why speak for us?

This isn't just another conference.
There's something special about
