I just arrived and checked in to the Crown Plaza, Hunter Valley. The views here are amazing, I’m sure the next 3 days are going 2 be pretty full on, but if I have 2 work hard, this is the place to do it. Although slightly overcast, this place combines city type accommodation and facilities in a rural setting.

On check in, I met Kirstin, our contact at MediaConnect who invited us to the conference. Got my lapel (Jason – techAU), received a detailed agenda, and a cover letter explaining the conference. It explains that the event is focused on the dynamic flow of information between analysts, blogger’s and industry. And follows the ‘unconference’ theme in steering away from presentations and lectures to more of a discussion / debate style.

About to go into the opening keynote @ 12, should be good, really looking foward to it.

 And of course you can read about all of it right here on techAU.
