Thanks For A Great Event!
For our 6th SoundBoard conference, we went BIG! In addition to offering concurrent session tracks, we also added a 2nd day. So many great speakers and amazing sessions, and as always we had a BLAST!
If you missed out, no worries. We’re already hard at work planning our next big event. Just be sure to join our mailing list so you can stay in the loop.
Work Hard, Play Hard!
All work and no play make for a decidedly not awesome conference. That’s why we’re planning events in some of our favorite local spots in downtown, Athens. Half the fun of SoundBoard is how good we are at having a good time. 😉
Here are the times of our networking parties. We’ll disclose the specific locations during the conference.
Thursday Night: 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Friday Night: 5:30 PM – 9:00 PM (Festivities immediately to follow the conference)
We’ll have a food truck on-site for lunch each day, and meal vouchers will be included with your registration. If you have dietary considerations, please be sure to let us know when you complete your registration and we will do our best to help our vendors accommodate.
There will be some snacks provided throughout the day. Same goes for coffee, water, and iced tea (sweet and unsweetened).
Everyone will be on their own for dinner, and of course are tons of other local vendors nearby if you decide you’d rather walk somewhere downtown for lunch!
Where To Stay
If you’re coming in from Atlanta this may be worthwhile: we’re going to have a lot of fun in the evenings and we promise it’ll be better networking and excitement than Spaghetti Junction traffic. Consider staying over, Athens is a treat to visit!
**PLEASE NOTE THAT BOTH ROOMS BLOCKS AND DISCOUNTED RATES END 2/25/19
The Graduate Hotel Athens
We have a hotel room block at The Graduate Hotel, the site of our conference venue.
- You can call 706-549-7020 and say “SoundBoard” or use code: SO0320
- Or book online: Register: The Graduate Athens SoundBoard Room Block
*Please note that if you want to stay over Friday night to stay and party with us (woot!), then that is technically not part of the room block so you may need to contact the hotel directly to extend your stay.
Hotel Indigo Athens
We also have a room block at the Indigo Hotel which is located next door to the conference venue.
- You can call 1-866-808-1483 and reference “SoundBoard Marketing Conference”
- Or book online: Register: Indigo Hotel Athens SoundBoard Room Block
*Please note that if you want to stay over Friday night as well and party with us (woo-hoo!), then that is technically not part of the room block so you may need to contact the hotel directly to extend your stay.
Registration will open at 8am each day. Be sure you’re completed your pre-registration online before coming to the event. You’ll know you’ve completed the registration emails when you’ve actually gotten your ticket with a QR code on it. We’ll do our best to follow-up with everyone beforehand individually to make sure no one is missing any emails.
There is parking in a lot behind the Graduate hotel, just go straight back when you pull into the main entrance, go all the way back towards the spa area, but then turn LEFT to get to the overflow parking.
When you arrive on-site, follow signs towards the Foundry. We will have a registration table setup in the breezeway just before you get to the vent rooms, where someone from our team will scan your ticket and get you checked in (you can show your phone, no need to print it out). If you ned to register on-site, we will be able to help you out with that as well.
