A while back I reminded you all that if you signed up early for Web 2.0 this year, you’d get a significant discount. We make the early registration for the event invitation only, to give alumni and friends (at least, the ones we had correct emails for) a chance to get a seat first, before we open it up to the public. I’m pleased to say that we have had very strong early registrations, nearly as many now – in mid August – as we had just a week before the event last year.
That means that the conference will probably sell out (sponsorships are nearly sold out, for example). So if you want to come, and grab that earlybird discount, sign up now. If you have not gotten an invitation, consider this post your invite, and head here. You need to fill out a form requesting one, but just say you came via Searchblog, and you’ll get a code to use for registration. When it comes, register asap, as hotel rooms (should you need one) are filling up fast too, and after Monday, the doors swing open for everyone….
BTW, the conference is really coming together. Terry Semel just confirmed, I’ll be interviewing him. So has Shawn Fanning, Yusuf Mehdi (MSN), Jonathan Miller (AOL), Bram Cohen, Pierre Omidyar, Omid Kordestani (SVP and “business founder” at Google), Joshua Schachter (del.icio.us) and many many more. And we have at least 16 killer workshops – on tagging, the future of video, of search (of course), VC 2.0, etc etc etc. The workshops are part of the overall deal now, no separate registration, and they are really going to rock. It all starts Weds morning the 5th of October.
OK, end of commercial. If you’re not planning on going, then you’re not reading this anyway. If you are, the best deal is to act now, as they say on TV.
