I said it last week, and I’ll say it again: Thursday is the last day to take advantage of the Early Bird rates for Echo 2012. I’d hate for you to miss it. But in the event you might need a little convincing in order to register for Echo, I put together a little list of reasons you should come:
- Tony Hale.
- aka Buster Bluth.
- Buster stinkin’ Bluth!
- There will be food. And coffee. And more food. And more coffee.
- The fun challenge of trying to recognize people in real life based on their tiny Twitter avatars.
- These are your people.
- Our sponsors and exhibitors are the best — they’re great organizations valuable resources.
- Marlon Hall is going to knock your socks off.
- The opportunity to connect three different devices to the Echo wifi network.
- Davin Bryngrim.
- Last year we hosted a screening of Blue Like Jazz: The Movie nine months before it hit theaters, and we’ve got some really great After Hours plans cooking again this year.
- Gary Molander hugs.
- You won’t find a better place for chillin’ out, maxin’, and relaxin’ all cool than Watermark Community Church.
- Jon Abel is back leading worship for us, and he’s a wonderful human.
- Todd Wagner always delivers.
- It’ll be like a play-date for your iPad.
- Jeff Sheldon, who you might know as Ugmonk, is teaching a breakout.
- So is Esther Havens, who has been in Guatemala capturing stories for Warby Parker.
- And just because it bears repeating: These are your people.
I could go on, but hopefully you’re convinced by now. Check out the Echo 2012 site and grab your tickets between now and Thursday.
