The LendIt Conference is just five weeks away. And I want to let everyone know that the discounted pricing will end tomorrow night. The price will be going up from $795 to $1,195 on Monday night at midnight Pacific Time. So, if you are sitting on the fence about whether or not to attend LendIt 2014 it is a good idea to make your mind up now.
LendIt 2014 will be the largest gathering ever for people interested in the peer to peer lending industry – over 800 people will converge on the San Francisco Hilton Hotel in Union Square on May 4-6.
Sunday Night Cocktail Party is Sold Out
We will be kicking off LendIt 2014 with a cocktail party sponsored by Lending Club. It will be held at the Cityscape room on the 46th floor of the Hilton. But if you want a ticket to that event, I am afraid you are already too late. Space there is limited to 300 people and we are now sold out.
Book Your Room at the Hilton
We have secured a discounted block of rooms at the Hilton Hotel in San Francisco but we only have 115 room nights left in our block. These rooms are at a considerable discount to the retail prices you will find on the Hilton’s website and they will likely sell out well before the event. You can book your room directly with the Hilton either before or after you register for the conference itself.
Agenda is Coming Together Nicely
The speaker roster for LendIt is taking shape. We have pretty much all the big names in the industry on the agenda as well as many emerging leaders. The final agenda will be ready within the next two weeks. Like last year, we will be having two tracks: a main track with presentations and panels in the main room and then a second track focusing on more practical workshops and company demos.
The Lend Academy Reader Discount
Of course, as a Lend Academy reader you never have to pay the full retail price to attend LendIt. Just use the discount code LENDACADEMYVIP at checkout and you will receive a 25% discount. But to get the best price you need to register before the end of the day on March 31. As I said the price will be going up at midnight Pacific Time tomorrow night. You can click here to register.
Hope to see many of you in San Francisco on May 4-6.
