As my first official duty as a RootsTech 2013 Official Blogger, I'm informing you that the early-bird registration is available now.
If you've never heard of RootsTech, here is a video that explains how it is different from other family history conferences. (I tried to embed this video, but failed miserably due to the fact that it's Monday.)
The RootsTech website is filled with information about RootsTech 2013. This is a huge improvement over last year as I anxiously awaited the schedule. Here are some of the highlights of the current website:
Conference schedule including week at a glance, session schedule, and workshops.
Are you a beginner? RootsTech is hosting a special Getting Started track of sessions
There's even a special Developer Day with its own developer schedule.
Also, the Expo Hall is 40% bigger than in previous years. This is very good on many levels. You can never have too many family history and technology vendors...and there's plenty of room for books!
And of course, don't forget the special evening events.
Registration for RootsTech 2013 depends on which track you want to attend (day pass, full conference, Developer Day, Getting Started). There's even a reduced price for students. UPDATE: if you're registering for the 3-day conference, use code RT129 and save $20 off the early bird price of $149. Hurry because this super special discount ends October 12, 2012.
And....don't forget....the Family History Library is just around the corner from the RootsTech venue.
I bring you this information as part of my Official Blogger duty, but also because I enjoy RootsTech very much. It has some of the tech talk I crave and miss from my library conference days. It has a beautiful setting. It has lots of genealogy sights and sounds. It has excellent speakers. It has old and new friends.
Hopefully I will see you there.
[Disclosure: I received a complimentary registration fr my role as a RootsTech Official Blogger. Occasionally I will post information and updates about this event. The excitement, however, is my own. --A]
