We're wrapping up the programme layout this week. If you were considering programme advertising or sponsorship but hadn't quite gotten around to contacting us, now is ur last chance. We will accept advertising up until Friday May 8th at 1pm ET (10 am PT). You can download the programme rates and contract here.

Last Call for 2011 Bids

The deadline for bids for 2011 was May 1st. We haven't received any bids yet. Bids need to be published in the conference programme and online in advance of the conference. If you were planning on putting in a bid, please have it in to us by Friday May 8th at 1pm ET (10 am PT). You can see the bid guidelines here. If no bids are received by this Friday, the current Board of Directors will recommend to the membership at the next AGM that there be no conference in 2011, and that he next one be held in 2012. We may also want to consider having the conference every two years instead of our current annual model.
