Chillin’Competition Conference 2019- Updated Program + Live Stream

leave a comment »

The 5th Chillin’Competition conference is fast approaching!

We have received many requests for additional tickets, particularly from those of you on the waitlist. We can’t unfortunately accommodate any more attendees (Pablo is even concerned that we might not be able to accommodate those currently registered).

Here’s the good news: to make up for this, we have arranged for the conference to be accessibe via a Youtube live stream.

We will be posting a (functioning) link on the blog around next Monday that will enable you to follow all the action.

We have had to make a few tweaks to the program. Please see the final version below. Those watching from the office/home will at least be able to take a break at some point in the morning 😉
