( Kicking Flash in the Midwest )
Thursday June 24th, 2004
Nicollet Island Pavilion,
Minneapolis, MN
9am – 8pm


The mission of FlashBelt is to bring together flash developers and enthusiasts in the midwest to share
knowledge, inspiration and build community.
2004 is FlashBelt’s inaugural year and we couldn’t be more excited. An event of its nature is long overdue
in the region. The core of the day long event will consist of local and international speakers presenting on
a wide range of Flash topics including the latest technical capabilities and applications of Flash MX 2004,
rich content creation, the finer points of communication design, and what the future holds for Flash.
In addition to the experts heard on the presentation stage, there will also be several exhibitors including
software and hardware manufacturers, publishers, and service providers. In the Talent Pool local developers
will show off their work and explain their services. In the Student Feedback section students will spot their
laptops and interact with the attendees to get (or give) pointers.
Of course, there will be multiple networking and socializing opportunities throughout the event, including
a buffet lunch to break the day up and a cocktail party to wind it down. We’re also working with our speakers
to arrange several add-on workshops that will take place the following day at a local educational facility.
FlashBelt will take place at the Nicollet Island Pavilion. Scenically located on the Mississippi river across from
downtown Minneapolis, it provides the perfect venue to bring our audience together in an exciting and
inspiring location.
