    There may be fewer registrants but
    * the intial number is still pretty impressive
    * we're still 7 months out!
    * you'll have far fewer drops this year since there's a financial commitment attached to an RSVP

    Last year the $20 fee to reserve a place meant thatt things ostensibly 'filled up' and then folks who wanted in later couldn't do it.

    This year is a definite improvement I'd think.

    Last year's event was great. Regardless of the minor hiccups that occurred (many of which are likely to occur anytime an initial event of this size is put together by volunteers), everyone seemed to thoroughly enjoy themselves. The organizers and presenters did a fantastic job.

    I'm registered and booked for this year. Looking forward to seeing friends and making new ones :D.

    I learned a lot last year, and met some nice people. Might have to skip the Halloween Party I usually go to on Saturday Night.
    No I am not packing my costume .

    I registered and paid, however I have the following problem: Where can I find a list of the seminars I chose during registration - I cant remember my choice. Where can I look it up ? Thanks.

    I can't remember either! :eek:I jotted them down on a piece of paper but of course can't find it now (which isn't unusual for me!) The confirmation email doesn't have the info
     
  8. Go to Eventbrite.com. Log in with your email and password. Click on Chicago Seminars 2011. Then click on Manage Orders. You'll find everything that you registered for.

    Nope,

    that all that is shown:

    But how the f*** can I see the sessions I registered ???
     
  10. Really, it's there. You may have come to a screen and you may have clicked on "Chicago Seminars 2011". You don't want to click "Chicago Seminars 2011". Instead try clicking "Manage order". Hope this helps.

    That indeed does the trick! The "Manage Order" link is just underneath the "Chicago Seminars 2011" title. It's in light grey font so at first I didn't notice it either, especially as it's right beside a bright blue link for "Event details" Thanks!

    Is there any way to monitor the host hotel for a cancellation so you can switch you room reservation to them?

    I am looking at the SPG hotels in that area,
    thinking C+P is good value compared to $99+ at overflow hotel.
    Aloft ORD, Sheraton Elk Grove, and Four Points are 1600 pts+ $30.

    edit:
    I booked Courtyard about .7 mile up the road
    for 7500 Marriott Points each night....
    I'll be registering as soon as my TPAC flights get set.

    Just registered. Moving back to Chicago in a couple of weeks --- excited to be able to attend this year!

    If you're still looking for volunteers, I'd be happy to help out with registrations or whatever else needs done.

    Low priority question.

    Is there a way for me to check which of the seminars I registered to? I just looked at my order confirmation from early April and the ticket doesn't show the seminars. Clearly, the only difference is knowing now as compared to having a nice surprise when I show up in October.

    Thanks,

    Sagy

  23. 1. Where can I find a synopsis or brief description of each of the sessions?

    2. If I register for a session that I later change my mind about, can I switch to a different one?

    (1) see posts 4 and 5 of this thread.
    (2) it is not clear that this is possible.
