Hello Everyone:

WE'RE SOLD OUT AND REGISTRATIONS IS CLOSED.
Now I'm glad I had too much caffeine yesterday and was browsing Bogleheads before going to bed. :wink:

I got in just under the wire, after Mel posted his "90% full" message last night.

Hi Mel, thank you and your team for setting up this conference. This is my first conference and I am looking forward to the expert panel and other discussions. Is there a way to network with other attendees before the conference in order to find out if we have similar financial interests or live in the same area? The sole purpose is to get to know a few of the attendees since I may not know anyone since this is my first conference.

Wovenhearts, you will probably want a rental car to make best use of your time. I sent you a PM
Agree that you'll want a car to get around. Some of those neat places mentioned are in the suburbs.
I expect that I'm going to be driving in and have booked the Conference hotel starting Tuesday night. (This presumes my brother in MD invites me to stay with him, since it is too long a drive for me to do in one day!) I've previously done downtown Philly, but definitely want to do Longwood Gardens - which I missed the last time since I didn't have a car. If anyone would like to join me touring the gardens Wed morning before the conference, please PM me. I can comfortably take 3 passengers, 4 if we squeeze.

I would like to be placed on the waiting list, please: myself and one guest.

I was out of town on a business trip yesterday, and was unable to be on the forum, so regrettably, I missed the announcement.

I hope Christine Benz and Rick Ferri can also get to attend, they always light up the room.

And, yes, both Rick Ferri and Christine Benz will be attending again this year.

See you in Philly in October!

Any chance that Jason Zweig will be able to attend this year? My one big regret about not signing up last year was missing the chance to meet him. I am a huge fan, as was my late husband.
Jason has a standing invitation. Problem is, his column in the WSJ runs on the weekends, so he's working on his column and making last-minute changes on the same days that our Conference is going on. Fortunately, last year he got to come because he was doing a story on us.

Jason was a Senior Writer for Money Magazine when he and a photographer covered our second Conference. He did a great story with lots of photos (i think it ran about five or six pages) called "Here Come the Bogleheads". You can still find that column by googling that title.

Jason is one of the "good guys" and a real Bogleheads favorite.

Here are the links to Jason's article "Here Come the Bogleheads" from Money Magazine, Sept. 2001. (I have an original edition of the magazine and Jason kindly autographed it for me at the Conference last year :happy )

In September 2001, Jason was the opening night speaker at the Bogleheads Conference (back when we were called Vanguard Diehards) and this article he wrote is possibly the first article written about us on the "national stage" - we certainly have grown since then :D

Looking forward to my first BH conference. I am humbled to be meeting with the financial braintrust who have been my investing guides over the years. I am sorry I won't be able to meet Jack Bogle in person but I am glad I will be there to help honor his legacy.

Thanks Mel and team for pulling this together year after year.

That's right on target! I am registered and hope to see you this year, Sam.

I just realized that the announcement was done on thursday, and registration is closed on friday. I'm truly amazed and surprised.

Is there a way I can subscribe to Bogleheads conference announcements earlier, so I can sign up on time? I ended up in the waitlist.

Also, does Bogleheads Conference happen at a certain time during the year, in which case I can add a reminder in my calendar to look for Bogleheads conference announcements?

Thanks.

Not sure why you're amazed and surprised since we sell out shortly after I make the announcement each year. If you read my announcement, you'll see the warning to respond promptly or get shut out. That's a fact; it's not a sales pitch. Here's what it said:
Our previous Conferences were sold out within a few hours, so we suggest you not delay in registering and making your payment. Due to the size of our venue, our maximum attendance is limited
I announced the Conference dates some time ago here on the forum. And I tried to update that thread to let folks know approximately when to expect my announcement.

Normally the Conference is held in October and the announcement is made in late Feb. or early March. It was later than usual this year due to a death in one of my key registration team member's family.

Hope that helps.

Thank you for clarification. I read the description again, this is totally my bad, first time having these personal finance conferences in my radar. I just added a yearly reminder in my calendar now, to remind me to look for Bogleheads conference announcement. Thanks.

Hi Mel,

This will be my 13th Bogleheads conference. My first one was in 2007, and I have not missed any conferences since then. For me, its value extends beyond learning new financial information to reuniting with my friends and making new friends. In addition to the planned conference activities, I got some of the best ideas from fellow Bogleheads during late nights at the hotel bar and train rides back to Philadelphia.

As the number of people who have been to at least one conference grows every year, so does the number of people who want to come to the next one. And so I expect that the registration period will be getting ever shorter.

Mel, I am eternally grateful to you and your team for organizing this event. My warmest regards to the team member who had a death in the family.

See you all in October,
Victoria
