    So, it's under six weeks to the conference and I still need to justify it to the powers that be (like, really soon) but I still don't know who's speaking about what or how to register. Are there any details available yet?

    Seriously, I have open conference management software available and I'm more than happy to take a lead in getting registration underway, but you have to sanction it first - I don't want to feel I'm taking over. If it's just that you're short of time, we can fix that...

    I am thinking about coming up for the conference (would be first time at an Edugeek conference). Was wondering if there was any details about who is speaking? Would like to know before I book (long way from Sunny Devon)

    I'm with Powdarrmonkey, any news, or any viable options for those that can't drive all the way up North?

    Perhaps next conference can be more central? And before its said Chorley may be central if you count the tip of Scotland, but its not central to the populous!

    I'm in the same boat as Stevehill06 really - except I'm in Somerset as opposed to Sunny Devon

    So I have to hold off booking anything until I know what the schedule is - who is speaking, what are they speaking about - what's the timeframe for the entire conference?

    Not all of us can simply 'grab' a day or 2 off work and then find the cash to get to the conference.

    Some of us actually need to organise it and save up - of course if we don't know what's going on at the conference, then it's very difficult to actually justify the time or money.

    Like others I need to justify a trip to a conference so some details to present to the boss would be appreciated.

    I think the issue of location has come up before, I think that having meetings in other parts of the country or moving the conference round the country so that everyone has a chance to attend at some point would be a good idea.
    If time is an issue I am sure that there are more than enough willing people around the country willing to help organise.

    It is a maybe x 3 for us, we will have to check though.

    Is there a deal for those who have to stay overnight in the Ibis? It's a long way from Sunny Devon.....

    There are going to be some more Tech Events in the East Midlands in June/July ... as soon as stuff is confirmed it will go on EG.
