Many of you who have been following us on @overtheair and #ota16 have been asking us about when registration would open this year, and indeed we’ve been hesitating to go live because we saw that this moment was coming… we need to move the dates for this year’s Over the Air to November.
It’s been a mighty ‘newsworthy’ few months with lots of changes going on in the industry, and we simply haven’t had enough sponsorship commitment at this point to put on a good event in 6 weeks time. But now that we’ve bitten the bullet, we’re raring to go again.
For starters: Registration is now Open!
Although tickets are free as always, for the first time we are inviting those who are able to make a donation towards the costs of the event. If you can make a contribution of any value, it will be greatly appreciated.
And while you’re at it, why don’t you also submit a proposal for a workshop? As sessions become finalised we’ll be posting them along with speaker details on Lanyrd.
We hope to see you in November.
For the first time, we are introducing a small £5 donation to the Bletchley Park Trust as part of the registration process this year – a tiny cost for us, but with 500+ attendees expected it’s a nice little sum towards the repair and upkeep of the Park. (And of course you are welcome to donate more, if you feel inspired by the Bletchley Park story).
If everyone who attends gives £10 or more we could make a significant contribution towards the roof repair of Hut 12, where the ‘From Bletchley Park, with Love’ exhibit is housed ( Ian Fleming and Real Spies, Double Agents and Bletchley Park). Bletchley Park have kindly offered to give an annual season pass to all attendees who donate £12 or more.
