Conference Hotel - What a deal!!

Filed under: Accommodation — ABB @ 12:28 pm

We’ve found the perfect hotel!!
Thanks to lots of hard work and negotiation skills from Nicole or Louise at Spencer Travel, we’ve managed to secure special rates for conference delegates at the Vibe Hotel in Rushcutters Bay!

From a location perspective - it just can’t get any better - the hotel is only 2 minutes walk across the park to the Yacht Club!!

Here’s the deal:
Rate - per room per night - A$130.00
(It’s normally A$290.00)

How do you book?

Make sure you identify yourself as a delegate with the BlogTalk Downunder conference.
Trevor will require your credit card details to guarantee your room booking.

** Book now ** This is a special deal - the hotel will only allow us to offer this rate up until the 27th April - so don’t hesitate - book now!!!
After the 27th April the rate will increase - so avoid the additional costs!

Call for Sponsorship

Filed under: General — James @ 2:28 pm

OK, now we’ve got a great venue, great invited speakers and great abstracts… it’s time to ask for interests in sponsorship.

Consider this:

-We’ll be releasing all of the papers progressively up to the conference beginning through this site (huge link / blogging potential)
-We’ll be getting serious press from all the major Australian newspapers and several well respected international online publishers
-This site will remain online for the foreseeable future (we’ll probably use a new domain for the next one so that’s potentially for ever)
-We’ll be attended by major players in business and academia from Australia and beyond
-We’re hopefully going to announce shortly some amazing presenters / panellists that’ll create a heck of a buzz

We’re interested in all kinds of sponsorship from ‘limited’ ads on the site to sponsored posts to co-sponsoring the laptop satchels for attendees and the conference dinner. We can look into media/press arrangements too. We’ve priced the conference pretty much as low as we can so every little helps, if you’re in a University think of it as supporting research and innovation (it’s also entirely non-profit!)

All inquiries to me please, james [at] incsub [dot] org

[Might take me until Tuesday 7th to get back to you]
