An "unconference" is like a conference, but participant-driven and informal. The organization of the event is collaborative.

The format of the Hostel Management Unconference will be small group discussions -- picture something like the forums but in person! The Unconference is an opportunity to meet other hostel managers and talk about issues that affect hostels.

Discussion topics will be set by attendees. See the Hostel Management Forums for ideas. (e.g., bedbugs, recession, booking engines, the future of hosteling, hostel networks) The group will decide on the discussion topics during the Unconference.


The Unconference will begin with welcome drinks on the evening of February 6th. Small group discussions will take place on February 7th and 8th.
