An Event Apart Orlando: Special Edition!

We're thrilled to announce that we're adding a very special ninth event to the 2014 calendar: An Event Apart Orlando: Special Edition, to be held October 27-29, 2014 at Walt Disney World!

What makes this event so special? For starters, we're turning the dial up way past eleven. In fact, we're going all the way to eighteen. As in, eighteen amazing speakers over three incredible days of learning, insight, best practices, and future directions. Confirmed speakers include: Scott Berkun, Jason Grigsby, Erika Hall, Val Head, Scott Jehl, Jeremy Keith, Kate Kiefer Lee, Ethan Marcotte, Karen McGrane, Mike Monteiro, Jon Tan, Luke Wroblewski, Eric Meyer, and Jeffrey Zeldman.

A truly special event deserves a truly special venue, which is why we've selected the newly renovated Contemporary Resort at Walt Disney World. An iconic masterpiece of modern art and architecture, The Contemporary is right on the monorail loop to the Magic Kingdom.The resort offers fantastic family dining at Chef Mickey's, and world-class fare at the top-floor California Grill. And because it's the site of the conference, you can just walk out of your room and into the three-day event.

We've arranged a great deal on rooms with Disney: $239 a night, with the ability to extend your stay beyond the conference. If you choose to enjoy the Disney theme parks (and how could you not?), you'll be there right at the height of “Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.” It's a great experience of enhanced design—one that just might spark ideas for your interactive designs when you return to work.

Is that enough? Not even close! For this show only, in addition to the regular registration rates, we're offering a Gold Pass registration, loaded with great extras, including a complete set of A Book Apart e-books, a one-month premium membership to, plus a conference-exclusive “backstage” tour of Walt Disney World, letting you go behind the scenes to see how the whole Disney experience is designed and organized. There's even more that we'll reveal as the event date draws closer. You can sign up for the Gold Pass when you register, or upgrade from a standard registration at a later time.

We're ridiculously excited about this An Event Apart Special Edition show, and we think you will be, too. If you act soon, you can save big while early bird prices are in effect, and claim your seat before they sell out. And don't forget to use discount code AEALIST for an additional $100 off at registration.
