SoCapOtt Attendees! Just one more day until the big event! We hope you are as excited as we are.
You would have received an email from us earlier this week with all the information you need to get yourself to the conference on time and prepared for networking and learning galore.
Just in case you were too busy to read the email, here are the key details you need to know.
The conference is taking place at Algonquin College on Saturday July 21 in the T Building.
We suggest you park in lots #8 or #9 because parking is free on weekends in those lots. View the campus map.
**Don’t forget Woodroffe Southbound exit on the 417 is CLOSED for construction, so you will need to take an alternate route to the campus.**
Doors open for registration at 8:00 a.m. We’re not saying you have to come early but there will be coffee and (limited) pastries, yogurt and fruit. So come early if you want to partake!
Added bonus: You’ll be able to breeze through registration and do a bit of networking before the fun begins.
You don’t need to print your ticket. Simply present yourself at registration to receive your name badge and attendee bag.
Get your schedule sorted out
Note: We like to practice something called “the law of two feet.” If you’re in a session and it’s not meeting your needs or expectations, please feel free to leave the room quietly and choose another one. No hard feelings.
There will be wifi this year – no, really! We mean it!
There will be Wifi (barring any technical difficulties out of our control)! We encourage you to share updates on Twitter and Facebook during the conference. Tag your tweets with #socapott so we can all follow the conversation.
Laptops are optional but we do recommend you bring some kind of note-taking device whether it’s a pen and notepad, a smart phone, or a tablet…it’s up to you! There will be a charging station – provided by conference sponsor Chevrolet – in case you run out of juice.
Wondering what to wear? You can’t go wrong with business casual and a light sweater. A/C can get chilly. (Not that we’re complaining!)
Tweetup fun tonight at the Ottawa Marriott – join us!
It’s not too late to register for the tweetup on tonight hosted by conference sponsor the Ottawa Marriott. They have given us the Summit room (the revolving room!) and are providing some light munchies for attendees.
Prize! Prize! Prize!
But wait, there’s more! The Ottawa Marriott is also doing a giveaway tonight for one lucky SoCapOtt tweetup attendee. The prize is for one-night accommodation at the hotel. To win, tweet a photo of the Summit room OR of the city from the Summit’s amazing 29th-floor view – and include @OttawaMarriott and the #socapott hashtag in your tweet.
Whether you’re attending the conference or not, we’d love to see you at tonight’s tweetup!
Join us for a post-conference dinner
Extend the networking and fun after the conference by joining us for dinner at Chances R! We need to know how many to reserve for so let us know asap if you’d like to attend!
