It’s really happening…

Room 801 is returning to Sydney in 2015!

We’ve had a good look at what worked and what didn’t for our first event back in February, and we’ve also taken all of your feedback and the results of the attendee survey on board.

The main changes will concentrate our panels and presentations in a single programming stream over the weekend, with screenings and workshops alternating in a secondary room. This leaves us with more space for our traders to show off their amazing wares and, very importantly, more options for everyone at the con to socialise.

Due to some major stuff that’s been happening in the organisers’ lives, we’re moving the event to Parramatta (in central western Sydney). The venue will be very easy to reach via public transport, parking will be easier and there are heaps of accommodation and food options in the area to suit any budget.

So look forward to an official date and venue announcement very soon – we’ll be opening up expressions of interest for volunteers, traders, presenters and activities this month!
