Planning for The Oslo Blog Gathering 2010

Oslo Blog Gathering in August 2010 is going to be a blast! The response from all over the world is overwhelming and slowly bits and pieces in the program are beginning to take form. Even more: Expats bloggers in Norway have started to volunteer for improving the program and assisting at the gathering. I met five of them in Oslo some days ago – yea, even a couple are from a different city! Like I’ve told you before: Blogging Connecting People and I’m proud to introduce The Oslo Gathering’s Assistants:

These guys are amazingly enthusiastic about the gathering idea – you should click and visit each and one of them:
Corinne at “Northern Natterings
Caroline at “Return to Norway
BeaverBoosh at “A Canadian in Norway
Tressa at “American in Norway” and
Cecilia at “An Alien in Copenhagen – One year in Norway

Program improvement – local guides:
We all agreed that the program should be build around the Oslo Pass (included in the Program Fee: provides free travel on all public transport, free admission to museums and sights). That means that every participant can choose for themselves what they’d like to explore in Oslo. However, no one needs to walk alone: These expats (+ TorAa and DianeCA) will pick their different spot of the day and those who wish to be guided by a local may follow them. I hereby announce them as The Oslo Gathering Assistants. All this will be announced at the Official Program Site in due time.

Enjoying the long summer nights:

Long summer nights in OsloIn Oslo, the sun doesn’t go down before 9:30PM in August, so there are good reasons to be outdoors – in the Norwegian spirit :-) We will therefore arrange gatherings in the evening at places like Vigeland Sculpture Park where we can meet up and share our adventures of the day – and even discuss what to explore the next day in an informal social atmosphere.

Event at Facebook:

Oslo Blog Gathering Facebook EventTo promote the Oslo Blog Gathering, I have created an event at Facebook. To get an idea of how many would like to or at least consider joining us; this is the place to indicate your position. Go check it out and please invite all your blogger FB friends. You’re also welcome to write on the wall and share your expectations and suggestions, as well as what you are looking forward to explore in Oslo. It’s a great place to get in the spirit for a fun filled trip to Oslo in 2010.

  1. What a great planning team for next years most important blog-event. Please invite me to the next planning session.
    (we will of course have our own in Mariestad in 2 weeks from now).
    Oslo is a city plentyful of diversity and surprises, we that lives here, often do not realize. Only the fact there is more live concerts here than in all the other Nordic Capitals together, is a surprise.

  2. I’m very excited eventhough I still have to look up our family sched for next year.My decision will be made after Christmas that’s for sure ;)

    I’m putting up the link on my sidebar now :)

  8. What an exciting event – your much better at social networking then I. I like hiding behind my alias to much. However if I was more social it does look like fun and all the yummy norwegian food!

  9. Nice to know your nice assistants! Can’t wait to know all of them! My wishes for summer gathering : vigiland park, Oslo opéra, the grand hotel, aBBQ with sausages in the norvegian nature, the museums and the experiment on a viking boat along the fjords! And of course tasting the norvegian food and swimming at the beach!

  10. I’m also sorry I couldn’t make it to the planning meeting—looks like a fun and productive time was had by all. Thanks to all of you—especially you, Renny!—for your hard work in getting Oslo Blog Gathering up and off the ground. It’s going to be a wonderful event!
