Hi guys,

I was just imagining how great this could be. How about organizing an annual GMC event... it could be held at a central european location with good connections for flights etc and there would be gigs from the teachers and master-classes etc...
It could be held over a weekend ... I think this is a great idea and even if its not viable to run now, maybe in the future it would be something to aim for ? It would give the members a sense of belonging and maybe open it up for non members as a kind of promotional angle for the site. It could be advertised in guitar magazines etc.

just an idea...
nick

also maybe you could invite various guitar related companies to sponsor it and have their guitar equipment on show

When GMC becomes a global music community, and it sure will imo, I'll be glad to come to such (formal) Event! smile.gif

We allready discussed something similar, but in order to really organize it properly Kris must do it at his hometown. I think it would be the best solution since he has best connections there. Of course I'm not talking about now, but in the future - I say why not? The site has already grown pretty much since the beginning, who says that it doesn't come out as a big Global Music Community one day. I'm looking forward to that! biggrin.gif

Yes, this has been a dream of ours for a while, but I think you brought a new twist with the Sponsorship idea - that could really help make it work by ensuring that instructors are helped with travel costs etc.

I for one would love to meet all of you guys and our awesome students in person!

I think such an event would also be very beneficial for GMC. Many new possible students .
I know that if I were thinking about joining a guitar instruction website, I would go for the one that organizes things that big. It gives the website a lot more credibility.

Very true David - provided it was done well, and I'm sure GMC would do it very very well smile.gif. A bit like the Carlsberg drinks ads on European TV - GMC, probably the best guitar site in the world does probably the best members' event biggrin.gif .

I think also it could generate an awful lot of positive media attention for GMC worldwide.

Has anyone got experience in hosting and/or promoting similar events out of curiosity, since as Muris says maybe not easy to pull together and lots of things probably to consider? Closest I come are training courses and academic conferences.

That's an awesome idea, for sure not easy to be organized, but we could plan everything carefully and it doesn't have to happen next week, we could take all the time that we need to make it happen. Concerning possible sponsors, if we have something more concrete (date, place ect.) I could talk to Gibson, I am sure I could arrange something with them.
