Phil and I have decided to extend regular registration that is $200 for independents and $350 for everyone else until next Monday before prices go up $100. PLEASE REGISTER this week so we will be able to buy food for you. We have a fabulous line up of sponsors for the conference - THANK YOU.
Yes we know you have limited travel budget but Remember Plane tickets are cheaper then EVER – I just bought a one way ticket from SF to NY for $109 only 6 days in advance.
We have added the “VIP Ticket” for those of you who want to support IIW but can’t convince management to spend $1000 on a break sponsorship but can bill $998 to attend a a conference. We hope to sell a few of these this week – we will thank you for being VIP’s.
