I couldn’t help myself from posting something on April Fools Day, but really this is no joke! Thanks to Financial Uproar for posting about the first annual Financial Blogger Conference! This is being held in the windy city of Chicago on October 1st and 2nd, 2011. Of course the warm and dry climate in Arizona would have been preferred, but I do understand Chicago has some great art museums and night life. I also understand there is a sports event at the end of September for those who are inclined: Blue Jays’ final series of the season, against the Chicago White Sox.
Now this just looks like a whole weekend of networking and fun! Be great to meet new people involved in the same blogging community, and maybe learn some new tricks 🙂 I’ve already signed up and looking forward to the long trip from Vancouver. Thanks Travelocity for the great deals!
There are 36 spots left for the Super Early Bird ticket at $89, which also expire on April 15th 2011, so be sure to register soon! Once those spots are gone, you will be paying $129 for the Early Bird Pass. My only wish, is they would have the venue planned to make booking a hotel easier, and provided contact info for the event coordinator.
Vancouver Canada and Chicago are almost two-thousand miles apart (about 1778 and 2861 km to be exact) – but that’s half the fun of travelling isn’t it?
