What is Londonvasion 2008?
Londonvasion 2008 is the first ever live phpBB conference. We are very excited to present you with this unique opportunity to meet fellow community members, as well as the phpBB team.

The conference will be held on Sunday July 20th in a hotel across the street from London Heathrow Airport (UK). Doors will open at 9:00 AM and the event is scheduled to end at around 17:00 (5 PM). Presentations will be made throughout the event, and time will be provided for live Q&A.

Where is the event being held?
The conference will be held at the Radisson Edwardian Heathrow Hotel which is located directly across from London Heathrow Airport (LHR). There are around a dozen other hotels in the area, so you should have no problem finding a room if necessary.

If you plan on using the London Underground for transportation, the closest station also happens to be at LHR. Travel from the airport and Underground station to the hotel is available via a £4 shuttle bus which runs every 15 minutes. The shuttle also stops at the other hotels located on Bath Rd and can therefore be used to travel between hotels ? make sure to confirm this when booking. Alternatively, taxi fare from the airport is around £7.

Community members who reside in London may be able to provide travel tips, so please feel free to ask in the discussion topic.

Advertising
Several methods of live advertising are still available. If you are interested, please contact me for more information via any of the methods listed in my profile.

What should I bring?
Wifi will be available, so you are welcome to bring any portable internet capable device. Cameras (photo, video) will be allowed.

If you bring your Bertie, make sure that he is marked in some recognisable way and differs from all the others.

Parking
On site parking is available for a fee of £10 per day. This price may differ slightly depending on the amount of space.

Food and beverage
The hotel will be setting up a cafeteria with very reasonably priced options in the 3rd floor atrium. Items will include sandwiches of various fillings, tea, coffee, pastries, desserts and other snacks.

Updates
Important updates will be posted as replies to this topic and also emailed to all confirmed attendees. You may also wish to see the discussion topic for answers to specific questions.

Register?
Please read this post in its entirety before proceeding with registration.

There is a registration fee of £10 per person for the event. This is an unavoidable measure to prevent bogus bookings and the reselling of tickets, which is strictly prohibited. To further prevent "ticket scalping", each paid registration will have an id, name and email associated with it. All proceeds will be used to offset the cost of the event.

You can register for the event by filling out the following form: http://www.phpbb.com/londonvasion/. Upon submitting the form, you will be redirected to Paypal where you can pay the registration fee. You will receive a confirmation PM when your registration has been processed and confirmed. At this time, you will also see a confirmation page in place of the form. If you do not receive a confirmation PM, then your registration has not been confirmed. The system will only accept one registration per username, and the username will be linked to the ticket.

Please do not hesitate to contact me in private if you:
1) are unable to use Paypal.
2) need to register multiple tickets or a ticket for someone else.
3) do not receive a confirmation PM after payment.
4) experience any other problems.

Thanks, and we hope to see you in London,

- The phpBB Team :)

Londonvasion will take place in the "Commonwealth" suite, which can be reached by following the signs from the lobby. We hope to start the event at around 9:00 AM. Go up the grand staircase in the lobby and over the water garden (which is directly above the lobby). The door you come to is the entrance to the suite. Again, there will be signs with arrows to indicate this path.

A badge will be given to you upon entering the event. All you need to bring is an ID or printout of the registration confirmation.

If you have not purchased a ticket, they will be available at the door for £10.


We hope to see you tomorrow :)
