Three new add-ons and a giveaway for five all-access tickets to the 2013 ExpressionEngine Conference.
Five ExpressionEngine Tickets to Give Away
We have five (5) All-Access tickets to give away for the 2013 ExpressionEngine Conference in Portland, Oregon on October 14-15. The All-Access Admission is valued at $450, and includes the following:
- Access to the Mayfair, Crystal & Parliament Rooms
- Access to all 40 presentations
- Access to the Vendor Hall
- Access to recordings of all 40 sessions
- Includes lunch and refreshments
- Access to the ExpressionEngine Conference Reception
- 2 contest entries for the "Best of Show Awards"
This will be the biggest ExpressionEngine-specific conference to date, and will provide a great opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of ExpressionEngine and to network with those community members you know so well from the #eecms hashtag on Twitter and the ExpressionEngine® Answers Stack Exchange.
We're going to keep this very simple. If you were thinking about going to the conference and the cost of a ticket is all that's keeping you from going (you'll need to cover airfare, room and board, food, etc.), send us an email with the subject "I want to go to ExpressionEngine Conference 2013" (any variation will not count). In the email you only need to include your name. It would be handy if you included your Twitter username, although you don't have to. Note that you're not eligible if you've already bought an EEConf ticket. This giveaway is targeting those people who were on the fence about going and haven't purchased a ticket yet.
We will accept these emails until this time tomorrow (11am Eastern time, Friday September 6th). At that point, we will randomly choose five winners from the submitted emails and contact the winners.
If you have any questions about this giveaway, email us.
