We expected to sell out our limited number (100) of half-price HOPE Number Nine tickets. We just didn't know it would be THAT fast. In under two minutes, all of the tickets were gone. We've gotten lots of email since then asking when more would be available.
The second batch will go on sale in December - we'll have a specific date announced before then. While these won't be half price, they will be steeply discounted from the price at the door when the conference begins and less than the normal preregistration rate. These will also be limited in number but the limit will be higher than the first batch.
HOPE Number Nine will be taking place July 13-15, 2012 at the Hotel Pennsylvania in New York City.
