Events   Events : BlockParty 2008 -- April 4-6
   posted by RobertB on 20-Mar-2008 9:30:55 (1790 reads)
BlockParty 2008 is coming to Cleveland, Ohio on April 4-6. A giant demo party and show here in North America. Taken from the webpage, the organizers say, "2008's looking to dwarf 2007, as we continue our Five Years of Blockparty Pledge to bring you more of the top-flight demoparty action you've come to expect from us.

Click read more.

At BlockParty, attendees will listen to guest speakers, have the chance to attend "camps" (extended sessions for learning demo-coding), and participate and/or observe the competitions. I've been told that Commodore/Amiga demo action will be there, too. Guest speakers include such notables as Jason Scott of the BBS Documentary movie (his BP topic -- Now and Then, Here and There: Editing) and Jeri Ellsworth of CommodoreOne and C64 DTV fame (her BP topic -- CPU Not Required: Making Demos with FPGAs). For the complete speaker list and schedule, go to

BlockParty 2008 will be held at the Holiday Inn Select City Centre Lakeside, 1111 Lakeside Ave., in downtown Cleveland. (The hotel accomodations seem to be booked solid already for BlockParty guests, but some rooms may still be available by a direct phone call to the hotel. The hotel contact details are at the Notacon website.)

Various registration packages are available from $50 to $599. Early registration closes on March 23 at 9 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. Any remaining tickets will be sold at the door for $100 each.

Hmm, just get rid of the extra http:// Then it works fine.

I just took a look at the board. Seems that they've sold about 202 tickets now.
