We will be releasing the main round to tickets this evening. Although we do expect this year’s event to sell out we honestly don’t expect the tickets to go in the first few days. Keep an eye on the blog and our Twitter stream for more information.
We will also be giving a quick introduction to BarCampNorthEast at tonight’s Super Mondays event. The event was full, but there have been 4 tickets handed back if you desperately want to come.
If you would like to came and see the Life Lab, part of the space we ill be using for BarCampNorthEast3, then when not come along to Dorkbot NCL this Wednesday 20th January 2010. There are three great guest speakers coming along and I am looking froward to it. More details about the event is on the Centre for Life web site and a map to the Life Lab entrance is online at http://tinyurl.com/ljwfoo.
Thanks again to Dave Coxon we have a brand new logo for BarCampNorthEast3 and we are slowly updating the web site.
You may have guessed from the logo that our marvellous host this year will be the Centre for Life and it will be held as part of Newcastle Science Festival on the 20th and 21st March 2010. More details to follow.
Some good news. We can confirm thatBarCampNorthEast3 will happen in the first half of 2010, it will be in an amazing venue in the centre of Newcastle, and will be a 2 day event with an overnight. More details will be announced when we can confirm the date.
We are very pleased to have Tinwood and TwinnedCompanies.info join our sponsors. we can not make BarCampNorthEast happen without there help so please take a moment to find out more about them and how they can help you.
You know how you think everything in hand but then you remember something that you forgot about. Well we have just remembered no final decision was made on the room names. We agreed that famous Romans would be cool but never decided which ones. Have you any suggestions or preferences? Our list of suggestions is below.
We have four rooms and use of the bar.
With less that a week to go we still have some tickets available. If you know someone who might be interested in coming then please persuade them to come. If you have a blog then please blog that you are going.
If you are interested in coming but are not certain it is for you then please come along anyway. There are not locks on the doors and you are free to leave at any point. I recommend coming along on the Saturday to see how things go. If it is not for you then just leave, there will be not hard feelings.
If so then can you offer someone a lift? A few of our friends in the should are having to have back there tickets because they can not get here. If you can offer someone a lift then please get in touch.
We are pleased to announce our first two sponsors. Both Hedgehog lab and BBC Backstage have supported us before and we are very greatful for them supporting BarCampNothEast2. Please take a moment to find out why they value you.
Following the almost unanimous feedback we have decided to stick with our current venue and find somewhere else to stay overnight. So registration will open at 10am in the Centurion as originally advertised. Just head in to the bar and look for the regitration desk at the far end.
We are working on the place to bed down at the moment and will report back as soon as we can.
