The rate of registrations for An Event Apart Boston has been, in my eyes and the eyes of our greatly experienced Event Manager, nothing short of stunning. I generally look deeply askance at exhortations to “hurry before they’re all gone” or claims that “time is running out”, but they’re kind of warranted here.
That’s not because we only have ten seats left or anything, no; but we have sold a solid majority of the available seats in the 25 calendar days registration has been open. And we already know of a bunch more people who are planning to register just as soon as they can get all their institutional ducks lined up.
At the current rate of registration, we’ll most likely have sold all the available seats before the early bird deadline arrives on February 26th. My current projections say we’ll sell out on February 28th, but of course there’s no guarantee expressed or implied by that statement. Space could dry up faster or slower than I currently predict, especially since I didn’t take the expected last-minute early bird registration rush into account with that prediction. I’ll be sort of interested to see how far off I was, when the time comes.
So, yeah, the show is filling up fast. So is the special room rate we negotiated with the hotel. If you’re interested, then, you know… better hurry before they’re all gone.
