With just a little more than two months to the event (May 3-5) we will be posting more frequent updates here.
CONFERENCE SCHEDULE POSTED : For those who have been asking for a more detailed schedule, it's now available on our website at http://www.hos.com/#ambicon-schedule. There's also a PDF version for printing here.
TIER 3 PRICE INCREASE POSTPONED : The full conference ticket price was set to increase by $30 on March 1st. We've postponed this one month to April 1st to encourage more to attend the entire event.
SINGLE DAY and SINGLE CONCERT TICKETS : While we have given preferential access to Full Conference attendees since the beginning of ticket sales, we have enough seats left that we can offer some lower-priced alternatives for Bay Area and California residents:
A limited number of single day tickets will be available in early MARCH.
Tickets for the 4 individual concerts will be available in early APRIL.
See the detailed schedule to choose.
DISCOUNT ROOMS AT EMBASSY SUITES HAVE SOLD OUT : We had the biggest block they offer and they're gone. You can still reserve individual suites at higher rates online at Embassy Suites Reservations, or by calling 415-499-9222 or 1-800-EMBASSY and asking for Reservations for the San Rafael, CA location.
MORE ROOMS, LESS MONEY : For an alternative, we've contacted the nearby FOUR POINTS SHERATON SAN RAFAEL Hotel and arranged for another block of discount rooms at $119/night. You can call 800-325-3535 for reservations; mention AMBIcon 2013 to get the special rate. We will post a link to their reservations page as soon as they provide it. The overflow hotel is across the highway from a large shopping mall with good restaurants and services. It's an easy 10 minute walk from the conference, or a short shuttle ride.
THE MAN WHO WROTE THE BOOK ON AMBIENT — veteran English music writer MARK PRENDERGAST, is now confirmed for a special 2 hour presentation at the Sunday morning session. He will be giving an overview of Ambient music with slides and musical examples. This is the first time Mark has appeared in the U.S. and we're really excited to have him!
