There will be more meet space than we had for the extremely successful First Annual international Head-Fi meet, including multiple conference rooms plus hotel rooms converted for small break-outs, quiet rooms, additional vendor displays, etc. We will have blocks of rooms with special rates available at the Radisson, as well as another near-by hotel in the Sleestack empire.

Tyll Herstens is working with us in the same important roles he filled this year, and he is especially focusing on increasing the already excellent vendor participation. Lots of audio companies are kicking themselves for missing the first one and do not intend to make the same mistake next year! For our part, with all this advance notice and with more space for the meet, we hope to dramatically increase the member turnout for BOTH days as well. Start making your plans NOW!

That's about all we can tell you at this point...details about registration, table availability, room rates, etc. will be coming soon.

We'd really like to build on the immense success of the 2006 meet, but Aaron & crew did such a great job, we're going to need a lot of help to make it happen. There will be plenty of volunteer opportunities at the actual meet, and those will get sorted out later on. Coming up much sooner however, we have some larger, more strategic roles that need to be filled. Please post in this thread if you're interested in taking on one of these highly visible positions. Note: leaving a post here does not commit you to anything, it just lets us know who is interested once we start putting together the uber-team. Residence is the Bay Area/california is a plus, but not mandatory.

We are confident that the Head-Fi community can come together for another awesome weekend. See you all in April!

Hotel Accommodations

The room rates are now set for the Sleestack hotels, and Head-Fi members, vendors and guests can reserve rooms starting at 12:00 p.m. Pacific tomorrow, January 31, at both the Radisson san jose Airport and the Best Western. The rates are going to be a MAXIMUM of $89 per night at the Radisson and $69 per night at the Best Western, and depending on a couple of factors, Sleestack may be able to LOWER the rates as we get closer to the event. The primary way we can get the rates lower is by having a large number of bookings for the Head-Fi event, which is how you need to identify yourselves when you make reservations. Anyone who reserves a room with the Head-Fi Discount will get the lowest discounted rate at the time of the stay--it doesn't matter how early you book the reservation.

Regular posted rates on the Radisson site may change or they may be limited in number. If you are able to get better rates at these hotels through third-party sites or memberships you might have, then congratulations. But, for those identifying themselves as part of the Head-Fi event, you will pay the maximum stated above and may pay less. Sleestack did his best to keep these rates down, and they are really quite excellent especially considering many rooms can be shared.
