With a free bar, delegates were invited to unwind after the first day of conference with networking and nibbles in the exhibition hall. With lots of people in attendance it was a great opportunity to catch up with friends, colleagues and new contacts whilst browsing the interactive exhibition stands.
To round off Tuesday's session and get delegates in the swing of things before the joint social, delegates were invited to join their fellow community members at their community bus stops for drinks, chat and a fun networking game to help everyone get to know each another. Delegates found out what events UKOUG has in store for 2016 and meet our UKOUG volunteers – the committee members who put the agendas together. There were 'Blitz the Box' spots where you could post your community feedback, as well as the chance to win a bottle of bubbly by tweeting the best #appyselfie!
Big Birmingham Bash (#BBBash)
Following the Apps Community Networking was the Big Birmingham Bash! Truly living up to its big name, delegates enjoyed a karaoke booth, photo booth, virtual 3D rollercoaster simulator, casino tables and live band as well as free drinks and food. An upbeat and enjoyable environment after the drinks were flowing, the limbo game came out with delegates forming a conga line to take part, creating a vibrant and enjoyable atmosphere.
With a quiet area outside the hall for delegates to sit down and relax for a quiet chat, inside the hall was a different story! With an electric atmosphere the night ended at gone midnight, with the delegates all leaving on a high and slightly merry!
