Hello there! It’s sure been awhile, hasn’t it? Rest assured that even though you haven’t seen much activity online, that does not mean we haven’t been working hard offline as we prepare for TechPhx 2013 this November 16th and 17th!
I’m very excited to be leading the organizing committee again this year, along with co-leader Perri Collins!
We also have a wonderful group of people helping us out with the planning this year. Many of them are veterans to the planning process, but we also have some exciting newcomers that are bringing fresh ideas to the table. Thanks to all of your feedback, we are confident that this will be the best tech unconference yet! Along with all of our new ideas, we are bringing back some of the previously successful ideas from the PodcampAZ years that have fallen to the wayside.
One thing we are extremely excited about is opening up our Pre-Registration! That happens this THURSDAY, May 9, at 8am. This will be your first chance to grab your spot and attend the only UNconference in town! Based on the feedback from our survey after last year’s TechPhx, and much internal discussion of the pros and cons, we have decided that charging a small fee for attendance to TechPhx would improve the quality of the event while minimally impacting attendees. The fee will be $10, plus a $1.24 Eventbrite service charge, per person. Additionally, the base attendance fee will be increasing to $15 on the days of the event, so that is another great reason to pre-register starting Thursday!
We have some amazing sponsors. Page.ly, EventDay, Gangplank Chandler, and of course Phoenix Innovation Foundation. Without these and other sponsors, we wouldn’t have access to so many things needed to run the event. We can’t wait to show you how we will make it even more memorable in the Awesome Category! This event is still all day Saturday and half of the day Sunday- so trust us, registering for TechPhx is an excellent investment. Of course, if you were there last November, you know this already!
