BlogHer '06: Day Two, Hotel approach sell-out
Time for another capacity update for BlogHer Conference '06, and I've got news on both the hotel front and the conference itself:
100 seats left for Day Two
Conference Update: 100 seats left for Day Two
We now have about 100 seats left for Day Two. To give you some perspective, it took 3 weeks for Day One to sell out once we announced that there were 100 seats left. So I'd say it's a good bet the conference will be completely sold out by the time we hit the July 4th long weekend. Because Day Two is structured differently than Day One we have capacity for almost double the number of attendees, so it is going to be one big party by the pool!
To recap: You can still buy tickets for Day Two only (which includes breakfast, lunch, a cocktail party and a full day of interactive discussions for only $99) plus you can start your BlogHer experience early by purchasing a ticket for the Day One cocktail party for $25. But whatever you do: do it in the next couple of weeks!
Hotel Update: $75 room block completely sold out; 10 rooms per night added for $95
We would like to thank you all because as of last week we have officially reserved triple the number of room nights we committed to bring to the Hyatt! (Probably the biggest apprehension event organizers have is that they'll end up paying for hotel rooms that never sold.)
The Hyatt extended our block of rooms and extended our block of rooms, but they have finally cried "uncle." They have now added 10 more rooms for Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights at a still-very-reasonable $95 room rate. After that it's rack rates only.
They have obviously let us reserve far more rooms than anticipated at the conference rate, and I want to thank them for their flexibility. Like last year, BlogHer is coinciding with the San Jose Grand Prix, so while other hotels are planning to cash in on this major tourist event, the Hyatt is turning their hotel over to BlogHers from around the world!
To recap: There are no more $75 rooms available for BlogHer, but they have added 10 more rooms at a still-reasonable rate of $95. Get 'em while they're hot.
As always, feel free to contact me if you have any conference-related questions.
