Preparing for SQLSaturday #49

We’re still in the early stages so the pace is comfortably slow. We’ve got about 30 sessions in already (plenty of room for more), a few people interested in submitting an abstract for our $99 pre-con, and Jack Corbett toiling away on sponsors and marketing.

That gives me time to focus on logistics more. I’m driving up to the site this week to do a formal ‘signage’ plan, deciding exactly where we need signs to make sure people can navigate the somewhat confusing Seminole State College campus, and then I’m going to order some nicer reusable signs and get them into a nice container, this year won’t be the last year we’ll use them!

I’m also going to quickly revisit our recommended hotel. We don’t have that many people staying overnight, but for the ones that do, we want to make sure the hotel is in good shape.

Along with that, I’m going to be selecting the site of the speaker dinner. The last couple times we used Jax Fifth Avenue, but I think we’ll change it up this time and try to find someplace a little quieter.

Nothing exciting yet, but details on the road to a solid SQLSaturday #49.
