Since this is a multi-day event, we have partnered with the Doubletree Hilton on 75 and Campbell to provide rooms for some speakers and guests at a great rate. If you don't feel like making the drive to Richardson every day, staying at the hotel is sure to be a blast. There's also a Fox and Hound pub right across the street!

It's sure to be an awesome weekend. Be there! Spread the word! Give us money! Volunteer! Something else!
