this weekend: 22-24 July 2016!

Hi.    Are you (or your station techs) already registered for Technorama?   It’s only a few days away now and we’re pumped.   If you’re registered or have someone going, ignore this bit and read the News below.  But if you haven’t yet registered, this is the important reminder.

It’s not too late to register, and it’s the cheapest full-on tech education event you will find.  Period.  This is how you support your volunteers.

Registration:  do this any time, even an hour before we start.  Click here, read all the info, then register before it’s too late.

Who can come, and who will benefit?  If you support tech for a station, if you are interested in radio technology, if you’re passionate about education and training, if you are involved with the sector in any capacity, if you work for a commercial radio station, or if you just want to join the gang for the weekend:  you can come and we will make you welcome.  And bring your friends/partners/relatives.

Newsflash:  The cheap two-days for one accommodation offer at Rydges was still available when this note was sent.  The rate has increased a few times, but for two nights it’s the cheapest around AND it’s an international class hotel.  Book now while two nights of hotel costs less than a Sydney taxi fare!

The full program is here, and even more details about the event, the location, the social times, and how to register are at www.technorama.org.au.  While you’re there download the cool (we think) TR16 poster from the website for your station noticeboard!  
Our special welcome event is on Friday night at MediaHub.   You have to experience the facility to believe, so check the video here and see why we’re excited.  Technorama delegates will get an up-close and personal tour of some of the most advanced broadcast technology in the country.
Just a small sample of the buffet meals on offer...
Send any questions to info@technorama.org.au

If a tech army marches on its stomach, this is one event where nobody goes away hungry or frustrated.   We have the most wonderful lunch lined up, and dinner gets better.  It’s all included in the conference fee, along with morning and afternoon teas, and all the technical discussion that you can handle.
