Innovate 2007

Innovate 2007One of the cool things I get to do is help promote workshops and conferences at Granger - the biggest of which is the annual Innovate conference (previously the Innovative Church Conference). Each year we get together to develop the design, strategize about the print pieces and figure out how to use the website to get the word out.

This year we landed on the following:

  • home page: Innovate trailer able to be watched in small media player. Larger version of the trailer (warning: audio begins automatically on this page) is available if you click on the link below or click the video as it plays. Large flash element links to the "mini-site" for Innovate 2007.
  • Innovate 2007 Home Page: This page is the actual product page hosted inside the eCommerce solution - allowing the user to register for the conference. A navigation window is provided to hit "hosted" pages (outside the eCommerce system) for more conference information.
  • Innovate 2007 Mini-Site: Made up of the "hosted" pages that offer information like schedule, speakers, breakouts, etc.
  • Countdown2Innovate Podcast: Tim Stevens (Executive Pastor) and Kem Meyer (Communications Director) are hosting a podcast to discuss the conference, chat with scheduled speakers and go over topics related to innovation in the church.

It's been a fun ride watching all these pieces come together and I can't wait for the conference. This year it happens on September 27-28 with Workshops happening the day before on September 26, 2007.

We are also hosting the second annual Granger Film Festival after the midweek service on Thursday night.

We'll see you all there!
