DIFFICULTIES RESOLVED: WHAT THE HACK CONFERENCE RECEIVES PERMIT
Posted 22 Jun 2005 06:53:04 UTC

In a followup to a story we reported earlier, we've received word that organizers of this summer's What the Hack conference have successfully completed negotiations with the municipality of Boxtel and received a permit for the event.

As we reported earlier, the municipality had originally planned to deny granting the needed permit, which would have prevented the conference from occurring. However, further communication with conference organizers and potential attendees from around the world cleared up the misunderstanding, and so the permit was granted. The event will take place as scheduled: July 28 through 31, in Liempde, near Den Bosch, the Netherlands.

As many airlines offer discount fares to those who purchase tickets 30 days in advance, now might be a good time to reserve if you're thinking of going to the conference. Also, pre-registration for the conference (at a 10 Euro discount) ends July 1st.

In related news, organizers of the Hacktrain travelling from points throughout Germany to What the Hack have announced the route and fares. Organizers of the conference put it this way: "Short of someone landing a spaceship on the main field, this has to be the winner in the 'coolest way to get to What The Hack' contest."
