Download the registration form here

*** Special offer - Book (or get to refer you) 5 people and get one registration free ***

We’re going to be at the best venue in Sydney and that we have some of the most interesting invited speakers out there coming to Blogtalk.

We’re also going to have one of the most stimulating and engaging conferences you’ve ever attended AND we can now tell you that it’s quite possibly going to be the most affordable to boot!

That’s right, two whole days will set you back a measly 175 AUD, that’s about 135 US or less than 75 GB. Crikey!

So, registration is now open - we’re simple folk so just download this word document, fill in the details and then email, fax or post it (details on the .doc)

Check out the workshops available too!

  1. The idea of having a conference is good, but having it during the week instead of on a weekend is bad. This immediately disenfranchises people like me who have a day job. It really means that you will get an audience that can get to a blogging conference during business hours. Who is this likely to be? Some academics, journos, writers, and the odd pollie who can spell “Net”? Not me that’s for sure!

    Can’t say it looks like anyone thought about equity & access issues like this when planning this conference.

  2. To echo Anne’s comments over email we’ve tried to make this as accessible as possible through cost and scheduling it over the weekend Fri/Sat (as well as eventes either side).

    If this does pose a big problem for anyone we’re happy to talk about alternative arrangements (i.e. if you just want to come on a Saturday) as long as there are spaces available.

    Cheers, James

  3. Hi Geekgirl2, weekdays are hard I guess, I’m sort of taking a time in lieu arrangement, but weekends cut into family life as well. I will be doing some of my dayjob stuff on the plane over and in the evenings (online) anyway. (Hope there is fast internet :-) )

    Looking at the programme even just a visit on Saturday/Sunday may still be worth it. Hope you can come for at least a bit.

  4. In light of these issues, James, is there any chance you could offer a one day registration fee? I don’t want to gatecrash, but I can really only make it to half a day - I know quite a few people in the same situation.

  5. Hi Melissa, Not my call but I have to say I agree with you… I’ll put this forward to the committee and see what they come up with.

  7. James,
    I was just wondering if there is any chance of getting media access to the event. I work up at 2SER Radio at the University of Technology, and I would really like to come down and document some of the conference workshops and talks. Is there any chance of doing this?
    Cheers
