Time is running out if you wish to advertise for the conference. We
still have ad space in the Conference Syllabus, the Family Finder, The
Conference App, and the Conference Banquet Journal. Your ad must be in
to the Conference prior to June 15 in a pdf or other format that allows
us to publish it as is. All of the printed ads will be in black and
white, and online ads can be in color. We also still have the option to
put an insert into the Conference bag which will be given to all full
attendees of the Conference. Those will have to be printed and 1,000
copies must be delivered to the hotel to the attention of the Conference
not later than August 4. For more information on advertising and to
send in your reservation, see the Advertising tab on our website,
Conference Planning has entered the final stages. The Sheraton has
reported to us they are no longer able to accommodate base room
reservations for the entire week of the Conference. There are some
upgraded rooms available and some individual night rooms, as well.
There are few other rooms available in downtown Seattle. You need to
search for rooms if you have not made your room reservations for the
Conference. The University of Washington and Capitol Hill neighborhoods
offer quick access by the new light rail system to the Sheraton.
Pioneer Square is also a short distance >from downtown. The Westlake
Light Rail station is less than two blocks >from the Sheraton. There may
also be few rooms left at the Hyatt Olive 8 hotel, three blocks from
the Conference at
https://aws.passkey.com/event/15080205/owner/69782/home . They have been
gracious to offer a small block of rooms at a special rate for the
Conference. If you have already reserved rooms that you will not need,
we would appreciate it if you could release your unneeded room nights so
there is room for others.
We are looking forward to greeting you in Seattle. This will be one of
the better attended conferences in the past ten years. In addition to
the great programming lineup and entertainment, it is a great
opportunity to meet friends you may only know through online sources.
Seattle will be an exciting place to be >from August 7-12! See you then.
