Spouse/Guest Meal Plans - NEW
We’re thrilled that some of you are bringing along your partner in crime! We’d like to offer you the option to invite your spouse or other guest to the reception and/or meals. Below, you have the option to purchase a ticket for the opening reception, the opening reception AND all meals, or just meals. Choose your option from the list below. We’ll include his or her meal tickets in your registration packet.
Participate in Social Media & Backchannel
During the conference, we encourage attendees to tweet along with speakers and sessions.
The Twitter backchannel is an important part of any conference. Not only can you share live updates with other attendees and those following along at home, you also are creating a bit of a personal archive of what you’ve learned. So don’t be afraid to tweet some golden nuggets during the conference!
The official conference hashtag is #hippocamp15. Specific session tags and speaker usernames will be announced closer to the event.
Hippocampus is also on Instagram at @hippocampusmag; we’d love to see your photos from the conference! Tag them #hippocamp15.
We’ll compile some a Storify archive after the conference of some of the best tweets and Instagrams!
Get in Touch With Fellow Attendees - Preconference (carpool, room-sharing, etc.)
In addition to talking on social media, HippoCamp will post some documents to the HippoCamp Facebook group so that registered attendees or still-on-the-fence attendees can meet and mingle, and possibly arrange carpooling or room-sharing plans. Follow the link above to join the group.
