ShmooCon 2014 Dates, CFP, & Sponsorships Announced

Wow … can’t believe it’s that time already. As of this evening The Shmoo Group announced the conference dates as well as CFP and sponsorship information. Held a little earlier than last year, the January 17th through 19th dates are sure to increase the likelihood of another Snowmagedan. And with easier metro access and away from “interesting” clubs, the conference is back at the Washington Hilton.

The post also covers information on ticket sales, which start on November 1st at $150 with follow-ups on December 1st and 16th and include a new “sponsor a student” option; the CFP with due dates of October 15th and November 20th for the familiar One Track Mind, Build It, Belay It, and Bring It On tracks; and sponsorships ranging from $200 to $12,000.

Here’s The Shmoo Group’s full announcement for those looking for all the details…

Hard to believe this will be our tenth year hosting ShmooCon. We’re gearing up to make it a great one and we hope you’re along for the ride.

Some things of note:

ShmooCon 2014 will be held January 17-19 at the Washington Hilton.  Yup, back at the Hilton next year which means more room to move around.
