Web Directions offers you all a discount code that takes the ticket back to $799. That's $200 off, and even better than loyalty pricing. Web Directions hopes this might make it a bit easier. Just use the code GGD when you register and this will take the price back to $799.
In the venues section of the site Web Directions have some links for hotels including some nice cheap and cheerfuls:
Founded in Australia in 2004, by long time web industry figures Maxine Sherrin and John Allsopp, Web Directions conferences bring together the web industry’s leading experts from around the world to educate and inspire our attendees.
Our major conferences, Web Directions South (Sydney, Australia), Web Directions North, (North America), Web Directions East and now Web Directions @media in London cover the full range of interests for web professionals — web design, front-end and and back-end development, information architecture, interaction design, accessibility, data visualization and much more. We have also produced the groundbreaking GovHack for the Australian Federal Government’s Government 2.0 taskforce.
The Web Directions approach
Unlike many conferences, rather than calling for papers and speakers, we have a editorial approach — we put together programs based on current trends in the industry, and seek out speakers who are working in those areas to give inspiring, entertaining, but most importantly practical presentations. Take a look at our blog and resources siteto see slides and hear podcasts from our previous events.
But as important as the content is, conferences are also about connecting with your peers — making new connections, and strengthening existing ones, sharing know-how and expertise, finding an expert, or new clients. At Web Directions events we pay careful attention to this side of things with social events, and innovative use of social software to help build and strengthen those relationships.
With all our conferences and events our commitment is to
- bring together the best possible speakers — knowledgeable, entertaining, inspiring real world experts
- cover the issues, technologies, concepts and techniques web professionals need right now
- keep a clear separation between conference content and commercial communication — we have a clear no “pay to speak” policy
- provide the best possible value for our attendees — we try to deliver as much as possible, for as little as possible.
- help attendees connect with their peers through social events, and our own online networks like tweeps
In short — we put together the events we’d want to attend, and we trust you’ll want to as well.
