Buffalo Unconference focuses on ideas

A collaborative event that gives participants the chance to share their thoughts on technology, starting a business, the creative arts and a variety of other topics is coming back for a second year on April 16 in downtown Buffalo.

The Buffalo Unconference encourages attendees to take part themselves by suggesting a talk they would give during the interactive, day-long event. Organizers say anyone with ideas to contribute or a willingness to learn is welcome to come.

People propose a talk on any of a wide range of topics when they register for the ‘unconference.’ Organizers sort through the proposed talks and categorize them into one of six tracks, which will run concurrently on the day of the event. Attendees can sit in on any of the tracks.

The ‘unconference’ will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the VCAMP Health Accelerator, 403 Main St., Suite 200, Buffalo. The event was moved to a larger space to allow more people to take part this year. About 130 people had signed up as of Wednesday afternoon, with about 120 spots remaining. Visit for more information and to register. The title supporter of the event is AT&T.
