2016 Charlotte DO :: April 22-24, 2016
Hey folks, welcome to the discussion thread for the 2016 Charlotte DO. 😎
This thread will have details for the event, but always remember to check the website ( https://www.cltdo.com ) which will have the latest and greatest information in case I forget to update this post. First and foremost, the dates for the 2016 event are April 22 through April 24, 2016. We also have a pre-event dinner on Thursday, April 21 if you care to join us a day early. The event schedule has also been released, and you can view it and all of the details over on the website Events listing.
We expect registration to open sometime in late January or early February and we'll post an update when that date is finalized.
For those of you playing the home game, you may remember that I (along with several excellent helpers) produced the Austin Mega DO in the past. We've since left Austin and moved to Charlotte, so we decided to start a new tradition in a new town.
Here's a quick rundown of what's contained in the 2016 event:

Reminder: all the details and latest updates about each of the events is available on the website.
Additionally, there is no plan to provide transportation to any event so we encourage you to plan accordingly. All events are in the immediate Charlotte area, but some of them are outside of Uptown. We encourage car pooling and ride sharing as well as utilization of Uber. We're also forgoing the official hotel group rate in favor of not signing a risky contract and believing that each of you are savvy travelers who can locate a good hotel rate on your own. 🙂
We expect registration to open in late January or early February and we'll provide updates to the schedule and event details as we get closer. Stay turned to the website, this thread, Facebook, and Twitter for the latest updates.
We look forward to seeing everyone in April!
I'll try to be there for the 22nd.
Couple of updates posted over at the website: https://www.cltdo.com
The menus for the fine dining pre-event at Fahrenheit on Thursday and the dinner at OMB on Saturday are available, along with pricing for everything except the closing brunch on Sunday because the restaurant hasn't gotten back to us yet to confirm everything. You'd be amazed at how difficult some folks make it for us to give them money. :rolleyes: 🙂
As to the question everyone asks (when is registration opening?!?!), the short answer is: soon. The longer answer is that I am actively working on it but am erring on the side of caution since there is enough left to do that I don't want to promise a date that everyone arranges their schedule around and then have to change it. I'll post an update as soon as I can.
Let me know if anyone has questions or needs other details! 😎
Registration for the 2016 Charlotte DO will open at 8:00PM Eastern time on Wednesday, February 24, 2016 over at the website, https://www.cltdo.com . All the details are over there as well; set your alarms so you don't miss out. 😀
A veritable cornucopia of updates, additions, and announcements are available over at the website: https://www.cltdo.com
Registration opens in less than two weeks! Make sure you're ready. 😎
I've gotten lots of questions recently around events showing sold out: this is due to [USER=647]@ParanoiaTX[/USER] testing the registration system. Nothing is actually sold out as registration doesn't start until this Wednesday, February 24, at 8PM Eastern. 🙂
Thanks to Mackieman and Misty - a good time was had by all.
