    I think it needs a push Alex and Richard have put a lot in to organising this.

    A SharePint and some crazy golf at the end of the day would be good idea.

    I'm hoping to go

    The cost is always going to prevent a lot of people going for whatever reason. If it was free then oversubscription would be an issue

    Problem is no matter what Alex has got to cover his costs he is not making any profit on it price is just to cover the costs.

    Also I am going and for those wanting to go but can't due to cost then watch this space...

    Hi All,

    Just to let you know, I've added an on-line quote generator on the conference web site now so that you can raise a purchase order and be invoiced in the normal way.

    I hope to see see at the conference.

    Richard

    Thanks - but completing it this morning it looks like you can book for either track but not both, does this mean you can only attend one or the other? We tried entering the names twice for different tracks but it doubled the price is that right?

    The pathway choice is just an indicator of which one you'll more likely to go to more sessions of. You are free to go to whichever sessions you want, keeping in mind that the pathways are running concurrently.

    The choice on the form is just so we can plan which room to put each pathway in.

    Sorry about any confusion and I've updated the page to make it clearer - you'll see that once the web server has stopped caching the old version.

    As this is getting closer - how is everyone getting there, and where are people staying???

    Finally, and also importantly - after show drinks (or night before drinks for long distance travellers like me!!)...??

    I was told today over 120 are going to the conference.

    Not bad for the first year.

    For those asking about drinks. Some of the speakers and organisers (including myself) are staying at the Belfry the night before and I'm sure will be up for a drink. I'll certainly be in the bar after testing out the spa facilities!

    There's a SharePint event afterwards in the Belfry bar for those of you who don't need to rush away. We may even be able to persuade someone to donate a float.
