Missed Early Bird?

The First early bird ended Dec 31st at midnight.

You might have been thinking that the price was so perfectly low but you weren't ready.

So maybe if you contact me we can work out a deal to get you that rate.

Some ideas:

Volunteer to do some code

Help promote the conference

Donate your time to fold/ stuff mailers

Help find sponsors

I'm leaving this opportunity open for about a week. So contact me soon and I'll see what we can do. Thanks for the early support!

Groups of 3 or more. We want to make you an offer

For groups of 3 or more we have a 10% discount. However, if you really want to send more people from your company I'm willing to make you a deal of a lifetime for registering early.

CFUnited is running on its own income and we want to bring the best event we can by reserving the best vendors and lock in the lowest deals for our attendees. To do this we create Early bird rates for those who want to save big and help with our early deposits.

If you are willing to help, we may just be willing to make an offer. Same with Sponsorships.

Thanks for the early support! Contact me this week to get an offer.

Presentation Downloads For Every Year!

We're excited to announce that presentations from every year of CFUnited are now available for download for everyone after login.

This means that if you attended 2005, 2006, 2007 or 2008, you can download all the presentations.

Enjoy! - Elliott
