  1. I would very much like to attend this. I need to put in my expected expense report soon though. Are there any prices available for this event?

  2. As mentioned above, I too am working on my FY2012 budget and would like to bring several members of my team. Since this event is only 2 months away, any updates on when we’ll hear about pricing?

  3. Starting a list of Acceptance Criteria for details:

    1) Specific Venue or general area of town so that people from out of town can arranging lodging, either at the venue itself, or a nearby hotel.
    1a) if venue is a hotel, is a special room rate negotiated, and if so what do we need to say when reserving to get said rate.
    2) Specific Price (although around $300 as stated earlier is a good round number to work from) discounts for pre-registration, pre-reg deadlines, etc.
