It hasn’t been that long since PHPNW went live but we are ecstatic with the response so far. A whopping 120 tickets have already flown out the door and 22 of you have snapped up your hoodies. The whole Conference team have been blown away with this progress, the tickets are truly selling like hot-cakes. The team anticipate that the £99 blind-bird tickets will be available for the rest of the month but we’re not making any promises so we suggest you get a move on! The deadline for call for papers is fast approaching, just over a week left to go. If you are passionate about PHP and have a topic in mind that you feel delegates need to hear about then you best get your skates on and submit your entry! Are you new to the industry but still want to have your say? No problem. The Unconference track will be right up your street. It is designed to be a platform for those who haven’t had experience presenting before and want to test out their public speaking skills or trial a new topic.
We are delighted to be able to share with you the news of some of our sponsors who are kindly supporting the Conference this year. Engine Yard, Magma Digital Ltd and Skybet are Gold level sponsors, while Ampersand and Google are on board at Silver and Bronze level respectively. With many more in the pipeline we recommend booking early if you want to be affiliated with PHPNW14.
Sponsors can now sign up online at the PHPNW14 website so no excuses! Finally, just a quick note to address something that a few of you have enquired about. The situation with hotels is that unfortunately we haven’t been able to negotiate any discounts this year as there are key sporting events taking place in Manchester at the same time so the hotels are expecting to sell out. We tried our best! Nevertheless, this year’s Conference is shaping up nicely and promises not to disappoint.
We can barely contain the excitement and the after-movie from PHPNW13 really isn’t helping! Roll on PHPNW14!
