Beacon NetCafe Update

Est. Reading Time: 2 minutes

So I got a little busy on Friday and I am posting my weekly blog today. I am officially halfway done with my internship here at Beacon Technologies. So far I have learned a lot about the company and the overall industry. I still have a good amount of work to do for the competitive analysis and the Beacon NetCafe. The first half of my internship has been mostly research. I have setup the foundation to achieve my goals in this internship, and I look forward to completing them. There have been some changes to the Beacon NetCafe but this is all the part of the process of completing a project.


There have been some changes to the Beacon NetCafe. We are still debating if we go responsive or not but we are leaning towards responsive. As for the event, unfortunately the company won’t be able to have the actual event while I am working for Beacon Technologies during the summer. There are too many unknowns and the development team is already overloaded with work. I will still get to run the pilot for the event. I think this is a good idea because this will give more time to market the event to partners, clients, and the general public. After the pilot, I can get in contact with local business journals and associations to get some positive PR for the event. After talking with the team, we have also decided to not use Twitter. Most companies do not allow employees to use Twitter and this could be a huge problem for the event. The event will use a plug-in chat or comment section for questions to the panel. I was originally thinking this would be the best option but did not know if it was feasible for the website. This experience has taught me a lot about event planning and the evolution of planning. There have been many changes to the event but this all will ultimately make the event even better for the partners, clients, and public. I am glad to be able to work with such a great team of people.
