Excuse me skipping a week. On a personal level much had been going on preparing for our longer trip to Thailand and onwards after SteemFest. We are going to rent out our apartment in Amsterdam for the first time, so I was doing all kinds of overdue errants, small and large repairs, meh. Also we have met with the broker who is going to advertise and intermediate with potential candidates for living in our place while we roam planet earth.

With that done, I'm now moving over to ordering first items for SteemFest, printed matters, wristbands and such. Also I did quite some work on the maps which will be included in the SF booklet and mobile app. I'm also still planning some logistics for the event and very much looking forward to our departure to Bangkok in 4 weeks from now. The first 2 weeks in BKK we (we are with a family of 4) will be staying a bit outside of the city, which means I'll be heading in and out of the city on a daily basis, and considering renting a motor/mopedbike for that. After that, 1 week before SteemFest starts we'll be moving into the Prince Palace Hotel ourselves!

Introducing Conference Venue Day 2 - Warehouse 30

Warehouse30 in Bang Rak
In the previous post the conference day 1 venue was announced: Scala Theatre in Siam / Pathum Wan area. On day 2 we head to Bang Rak. It's a bit further to travel but depending on morning rush it should only take you 20 minutes to half an hour to get there. Unless I can find some boats to sail us there in 5-10 minutes, but that is to be defined (and depends on the price).

Situated in Bang Rak, very close to the River City mall, is a former array of warehouses turned into a commercial real estate area with boutique shops and art gallery, without losing touch to its origins. This area is the fruition of Bangkok's self pro-claimed "Politically incorrect architect", who's firm is also designing the new airport's terminal. Cosy located near the Chao Praya river, the warehouses house a community arts space with vendors, galleries, food & films.

It is here where in one of the Warehouses we'll have another day full of presentations. Depending on the program we can overflow in the coffee shop's additional presentation zone and the outdoor space will serve as breaks area where our dedicated catering company will serve Thailand's finest food.

Great news arrived earlier this week: A big team from Steemit Inc will be heading to Bangkok to attend and present at SteemFest. Previously confirmed were the attendance of @elipowell and @andrarchy, but I am happy to announce the following new speakers for SteemFest 4:

New speakers announced (Steemit Inc Exclusive this one :P)

  • @doxie-tx (US), Head of Operations, Steemit, Inc
  • @justinw (US), Head of Engineering, Steemit, Inc
  • @vandeberg (US), Senior Blockchain Engineer, Steemit, Inc
  • @gerbino (US), Blockchain Engineer, Steemit, Inc
  • @roadscape (US), Senior Product Engineer, Steemit, Inc

Already announced Steemit, Inc team members:

  • @elipowell (US), Managing Director, Steemit, Inc
  • @andrarchy (US), Head of Communications, Steemit, Inc

SteemFest already offered you a great change to meet a great bunch of Steemians and with this announcement you know you can come up & close with the core devs and other Steemit Inc members as well. Discuss the EIP, rant about what happened with the hardforks and chain halts, think along, and learn about the work on Smart Media tokens.

Yay excited to see @travelfeed present at Steemfest and to meet people behind Steemit Inc 😃

It's great to hear that the whole Steemit Inc gang will attend! This event step by step is proving to be the most promising one so far and I already attended two of them. Definitely worth attending!

Shame I won't be there to get my poker revenge! :-D

Have an amazing time :-)

@roelandp, Awesome and hope that we will going to see some Pre SteemFest pictures and videos on your blog. Have a great time ahead and stay blessed.

Wish I could be there this time around. Next time my friend. Have a great time!

Are there any outside promotion of Steemfest this time?

At least with #newsteem the community managed to put this on top trending unlike last years.

There are some mentions here and there, I guess there will be more in October

yes @poezio is working on more listings. Still having a conference in itself is not perse "newsworthy", so it's always difficult to find an angle for an interesting story. If you have any suggestions in creative ways to reach out to journalists beyond event listings I'm all ears.

There's the FCCT: Foreign Correspondents' Club of Thailand (https://www.fccthai.com/)

A press briefing would be useful.

of course

My wife and I are getting so excited for SteemFest this year. These venues look awesome. One of the best parts is that this is going to be an adventure each day to get to the different venues as we all ride in boats and tuk tuks to get to the different places. I can't wait!

This post has been included in the latest edition of The Steem News - a compilation of the key news stories on the Steem blockchain.

No @ned, or doesn't he work there anymore? I'm kind of thinking that.

I believe he's on a remote Pacific island carving guitars 🎸 out of drift wood,
surrounded by hula girls and drinking champagne out of coconut shells.

Only problem... no 'head and shoulders' out there 🤣😉

P.s. Check out this video from @steemmatt for the lowdown from Andy @slobberchops

His parody videos are honestly the funniest things I've ever seen on steem. This post has a selection of his best. Check out the first one, berniesanders interviewing Ned about STINC's power down. That had me choking on my dinner with laughter. And the one about Llfarms sexy photoshoot is hilarious too

Ill look later, at work now! They just wont get it.

ned essentially left and sold his stake 8 months ago

It will be nice for us to whole steemit members or gang will be together on this steemfest.

this arts is great thanks for sharing

Double edge sword reading these updates Roelandp as it's great to see everything coming together, but gutted I can't make it this year.

It really looks like you've got it dialed and organised... don't know how you do it.

Cudos.

I might have to get my sht together to finish up the last two 'places in Thailand to visit' posts to try and add some value with recommended places steemians can visit before/after the event.

SF4 in Bangkok looks so cool, keep up the good work 👍🙂

Looks awesome! So happy that there’s an art space and gallery 😀😊

in the second day venue are multiple art spaces but it yet remains to be seen if that is suitable for a potential "art at steemfest"...

That’s good to know :) Looking forward to the art at steemfest!
