The Epik Developer Conference is shaping up to be a must-attend event for anyone interested in learning about domain development. We are putting together what should be an enjoyable and rewarding program. This post provides an update on the Conference Venue and some of what we have planned for the delegates of the 1st Annual Epik Developer Conference.
Conference Venue Selected — The Edgewater Hotel in Downtown Seattle
The Edgewater Hotel is Seattle’s only true Waterfront hotel. The venue combines Pacific Northwest style with the modern amenities of a downtown waterfront hotel. Delegates will enjoy an ideal environment for learning about latest developments and building partnerships. The Edgewater was also the site of this month’s Search Engine Strategies Conference.
Room rates for delegates have been negotiated to $199 for city side deluxe rooms, or $229 for the waterfront full view premium rooms. I checked the hotel venue on Friday and can say the extra $30 is worth it for the waterfront full view.
Work and Play on the Seattle waterfront
The program will start with an evening reception at The Edgewater on Wednesday, September 15 and ends mid-day on the 17th.
The conference on September 16-17, and a Live Auction event on September 16 will be be conducted in the Main Ballroom of The Edgewater which features a panoramic view over Seattle’s Elliot Bay.
After the Live Auction on Thursday, September 16 delegates and spouses will be treated to a 3 hour cruise, open bar, and a 4-course Pacific Northwest menu.
The hotel is also walking distance to the Seattle Space needle, Waterfront attractions, and the Pike Place market for anyone who feels the needs to take in more of the full Seattle experience during their visit. And yes there is a Starbucks on nearly every block.
