We’re putting the finishing touches on our draft program and getting our site ready for registration opening! We thought this was the perfect time to give you a heads-up on registration costs and inclusions so you can start planning for your NLS experience.

We have worked hard to bring you an amazing program at even more amazing prices. We’ve kept the cost of registration low while simultaneously increasing the value of your NLS experience. This is not a conference with all the bells and whistles. There won’t be a cocktail party; we aren’t holding the Symposium at a fancy hotel; and there won’t be any silver service at lunches.

What you will get is a valuable professional development experience. We’ve upped the ante on the expert content in the program and signed on several big name keynotes. We’ve put together a seriously fabulous line up of workshops, designed specifically to meet your needs as new or new-ish graduates, and led by the best facilitators in the field. And on top of all that, we have a program of exciting sessions that will challenge you to ‘be different’.

Your Symposium registration will include

  • a pre-symposium, half day workshop of your choice on Saturday 9 February
  • attendance at the Symposium on Sunday 10 and Monday 11 February
  • attendance at the Information Online trade exhibition on Tuesday 12 February

Registration prices are expected to be (usual caveat: these are subject to change until registration opens):

ALIA member rates
Student $299
Early bird $399
Standard $459
Non-member rates
Student $369
Early bird $549
Standard $599

There are some extras you can opt in for, including the Symposium barbeque (our take on a ‘conference dinner’) and extra workshops, but none of these things will break the bank.

Our NLS Experience team┬áhave arranged discounted accommodation rates and we’ll be launching a space on our website where you can post classified ads to find someone with whom you can share accommodation. ┬áThe team are also keeping a look out for great travel deals, including discounted airfares, and they’ll be posting updates to our blog. In short, we’re doing everything we can to help you minimise the cost of your NLS6 experience.

Registration opening is just days away! In the mean time, start looking at your budget and block out Saturday 9 February through to Tuesday 12 February 2013 for your four day full-of-awesome NLS6 experience!
