Social Events

Get social at Access 2008!

It’s party time! Check out the social events for Access 2008. If you haven’t registered for the “If Techies Could Fly” event yet, we hope you will — come & hang out with friends, eat & drink even if you’re not so much into historical planes and video games. Should be a fun night!


Planning on staying at the Sheraton?

You might want to book your room soon! The conference room rate was originally guaranteed til August 31st but we’ve just had the hotel extend that to September 5th. After September 5th, rooms can be booked at regular hotel rates (ranging from $179-205 per night). Visit the accommodations page for the online reservation link & more info.


Access 2008 Travel Grants

Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and keynote speakers, we have a couple of travel grants to offer for Access 2008!

If you are a student OR if you’ve never attended Access before, head over to the Travel Grants page and apply for one of the two grants. The deadline to get your application in is Wednesday, September 3rd (for both grants) and the winners will be notified by Monday, September 8th.

If you have any questions about the travel grants, leave a comment or email Amanda at etchesa AT
