I went to LincUpLive (#LUL360) yesterday. Held at the Doubletree by Hilton on the Brayford Wharf in Lincoln, LincUpLive is an annual ‘tweet-up’ style event which attracts businesses from all over Lincolnshire.

The event was well-structured, with a number of keynotes and ‘breakout’ sessions where you could choose the session you felt would be most of interest and beneficial to you.

Keynote speakers included:

Redg Snodgrass (Co-founder, Stained Glass Labs) – who brought a Google Glass prototype)
Redg spoke about the future of ‘wearables’, and how he thinks they will change the world we know today.

Steve Middleborough (Director of Engineering, Siemens) – Steve mainly spoke about the new Siemens Teal Park development on the outskirts of Lincoln. It was interesting to hear him mention that he plans on providing Siemens’ field engineers with Google Glass within the next few years.

Graham Puntis

Wayne Gibbins (Funding expert, Notion Capital) – It was interesting to hear about alternative ways to raise startup capital. Wayne also spoke about Kickstarter (one of my favourite websites).

Richard Duxbury (Lincolnshire Media) – Richard explained how Lincolnshire Media has shifted to the ‘digital age’, focussing its operations around their online presence rather than print.

Alan Moore

Councillor Colin Davie – Colin gave his view on the technological developments and spoke about how the Lincolnshire County Council will be doing their bit to help promote growth within the county.

Throughout the day, there were also a number of breakout seminars which covered all aspects of online marketing.

As with all good local events, the Onlincolnshire ‘#dreamteam’ were there taking care of the PR/Social side of things, along with a number of students from Lincoln University.
