Montreal Meets 2 / MMTWO

Next month, I will be heading again to Montreal in Canada for the second Montreal Meets. I am pretty excited to meet my friends James White and François Hoang, but also Radim Malinic, Shelby White and Scott Hansen. I am also looking forward to meeting some of my Canadian friends and have a great time again! I am glad it won't be as cold as last year! About Montreal Meets 2 / MMTWO The event will takes place in Montreal, Qc in Canada on April 7th and 8th, 2012. A 2 Day Event in the heart of our city, in the Plateau Mont-Royal District. The Montreal Meets 2 / MMTWO will be happening at the Conservatoire de Musique de Montréal. Bigger than last year's event, we stepped up a notch to bring you 5 speakers from United States to Europe into an intimate venue and we'll surely know how to blast your creativity. The concept is simple. To connect each one of us with the creative world. To create events that will make people get inspired by the design industry, especially from the masters. It's also an opportunity for you to learn from the visionnaries. This is our main goal, it's their gift. It's our legacy! About the Speakers Make sure not to miss this amazing line-up of talented designers that truly made changes in the design industry. The 'ALL-STAR' Speakers!

We are reaching all the sources and trying our hardest to make this into an unforgettable experience for all of you. Our total expenses rounded up to $14,000 and as far we've raised less than a half of it. Most of the expenses comes from paying our speakers airfare and stay. Also without leaving anything beside, we also have the venue, equipment, advertising and printing. Our event will see light by the help and support from anyone that wants to get involved in different way. By choosing one of the seven (7) different pledge options, you are automatically contributing to the realization of MMTWO. Even if you couldn't make it, you are helping us making it.
