Blame Bigfoot!
AHA Conference filling up at record pace—register now

We knew that people were excited about this year's National Homebrewers Conference, but no one expected registration to fill up so quickly. The conference is nearly sold out. If you're planning on joining us in Seattle, we suggest you register as soon as possible. You'll need to login with your existing user account or create a new account to register for the conference. Thanks for your support, and we can't wait to see you in June!

Yes, Philly.
It's getting to the point where they could start to raise prices and/or make the registration earlier. It's a sellers market, so you'll have to be ready to buy within hours.

What they need to do is sell their tickets as a per day event. Or even package things per day with all events of the day being price A and a daily price for just social and no seminars price B. Each day would be a different price based on the nights events they offered. I think if they did it that way they realistically could charge more, or tailor things to the people going to the event. The downside is it could be a ticketing headache.

On a side note if you get there the weekend before (fathers day weekend) I believe the Washington Brewers Festival will be taking place in Kenmore again. Great fest if you want to take in the local commercial brew scene.

For future years they should offer tickets to former attendees first, then after a few days open up the flood gates after that. It'd be sad if next year half of us don't get to go because we clicked too slow to register the day they started selling tickets online. It worries me.

I disagree. So the people who just missed it this year would have little to no chance next year? Seems unfair.. How about open it up to former attendees plus former wait listers? That way, if you missed it this year but put your name on the wait list you could have first crack at it next year.

Or better yet... hold it in a larger convention center so that we can accommodate more people.
