This week the goodies started to arrive. With the tickets all claimed we now know the sizings for our attendees (now that makes for an interesting demographic :)) so we were able to order the T-Shirts, and also the bags to hold them (together with the rest of the swag from the sponsors).
My office is now cluttered up with five huge boxes – so a task for this week will be to get everything bagged up and ready.
This Sunday will also be a big day for the committee as the CFP is closing and we will be making the final decision as to our slate of speakers. It is going to be a hard choice to make as we have had lots of very high quality submissions. Personally I’m glad we will be getting everything videoed as I have a feeling I won’t be getting to see a lot of the talks I would be interested in.
We hope to publish our schedule here next week so watch this space.
