If you are flying Delta to the event please consider calling 1-800-328-1111 and using reference code NM5VD. The phone booking fees are waived for those taking part in this program using this number and code. Also you will save 2% and help us with our fund-raising goals.

Thanks-
Wes
+1 even if it is only 2%.

I'd rather pay $71 and stay at the Ren.
Will the Hilton make lounge access for attendees available during the weekend and will access be limited to only Diamonds or all attendees?

Will the registration be mobile compatible?

I might not be in laptop/desktop range at the registration window.

Ok good and bad news. The form seems to work great with my Android phone... not so good on my Blackberry. Looks like you are using something different so I can't guarantee it will work.

A windows mobile phone. My wife wants to go to a family picnic, it starts at noon central time and it's a bit over an hour from here, so if we leave on time I'll be in the car when you launch the site.

I'll try to convince her that we can arrive late.

With the BlackBerry--would there be a difference between whether the browser is configured in "page view" or "select view" as well as some of the other options--like XML/WML support?

The issue was with selecting items for the agenda such as RWT... I used both select and page. It wouldn't make the selection.

Ok, thanks for the heads up.

The Hilton confirms they will give lounge access to their registered guests who are HHonors Gold members. (That's actually the normal policy at this Hilton.) I will ask HHonors Gold members staying at the Atlanta Airport Hilton to PM me a week or so before the event, and I will provide that list to the Hilton. That will make doubly sure you get lounge access as an HH Gold member.

I have confirmed that their lounge is now open regular hours over the weekend. Last year it was closed over the weekend with changed hours due to the economy. This year it is back to regular hours.

Where you have questions/concerns about the Hilton, I'll help. My first priority request was to get free Internet, which they graciously agreed to. Our contract is signed, but I can still follow up on questions/concerns.

The Hilton is doing a lot to help us out, so we ask that you give consideration to staying with them for this event.

Thank you,
David H.

This info has also been updated on the first few posts of this thread.

======== July 1, 2010 UPDATE ============

The registration link will be posted at http://www.atldo.com.

Just to be sure we can properly set everyone's expectations here are some key points to review prior to beginning the registration process:

COSTS/FEES:

In addition to the already mentioned non-refundable registration fee of $95.00 per person, and the Delta Road Warrior training (Level 1 or Level 2) of $150.00, there are some service fees asssociated with using an automated event registration system that is handling event and venue scheduling as well as credit card processing. The service charge for using this service will vary depending on which paid events you take part in.

If you attend the event including Road Warrior Training the service fee will be $16.08 for a total of $261.08 ($95.00 + $150.00 + $16.08). If you wish to just attend the event without any other paid events the service fee will be $8.65 for a total of $103.65 ($95.00 + $8.65).


If you wish to book multiple people please use the add a person feature after you have completed your registration.

AGENDA/SCHEDULE:

Please note all the agenda items that you are shown are simply placeholders at this point. The actual time and dates are subject to change and additional venues/events will be added as they are confirmed. Please make note of the password you choose for your account so that you can quickly log back in at a later time to add these other events.

WAITLIST

Once the event or a venue is full the waitlist function will close registration and start taking e-mail addresses for notification of when a slot opens in the full event/venue. The system keeps an exact time stamp to the second of when a person joins a waitlist. Once a slot opens up the system will send you an e-mail and will hold your spot for 48 hours after the e-mail is sent. You will need to follow the instructions in the e-mail to complete your registration.

HAVE A QUESTION/CONCERN:

If you have problems with your registration you can e-mail [email protected], use Yahoo IM to chat with ATLDO_Wes or call our ATLDO hotline at (404) 910-3595. Please note that the registration hotline will only be turned on Saturday and then will be turned off until the event starts in October. If you call please leave a voicemail and someone will call you back as soon as possible. If you have any questions or concerns with the overall event, you can e-mail [email protected]

E-MAIL FILTERS
Due to issues outside of our control you please check your spam box if you do not get an e-mail confirmation within 30 minutes of completing your registration. We have noticed this problem on Yahoo accounts including Bellsouth webmail. Your best bet is to add [email protected]
to your safe senders list.

Thank you and your team for the hard work. One question - will an agenda be available before registration starts?

Is it possible to do both the RWT, Level 1 and then Level 2?

Actually...what exactly happens in each and how are they different?

I know the registration fee is non-refundable, but can we sign up for the RWT and then cancel later when the exact schedule is set? It is hard to commit before knowing exactly when they will be held.
