A week from today, Tuesday June 14th, we kick off our third annual Pandoland conference which, this year, takes place in Chicago.

Confirmed speakers include Dick Costolo, Margaret Atwood, Nancy Jo Sales, Max Levchin, Sam Yagan, Jason Hirschhorn, Matt Maloney and the Smashing Pumpkins' Jimmy Chamberlin with more being added right up until the start of the event. 

If you've attended previous Pandolands, you'll know what to expect -- but this year we're packing it all into a single day. That's over a dozen interviews and keynotes, plus a special local breakfast and lunch menu arranged just for us -- and a VIP cocktail reception to round off the day. As ever your on-stage host will be Sarah Lacy with occasional supporting appearances by Paul Carr. 

If you've never attended the event before, this is a spectacular year for first timers. A new city (and, of course, a new venue: Chicago's 1871 digital hub), an incredible line-up and everything else Chicago has to offer. 

We have a vanishingly small number of tickets still available if you haven't already grabbed yours. Everything listed above, plus more surprises throughout the day, for just $199. That includes all your food, drink and the cocktail reception too.

Our official hotel (Chicago Magnificent Mile) is now completely sold out, but Hotels.com is still showing some room availability near the venue (222 W. Merchandise Mart Plaza, Chicago, IL).

You definitely don't want to miss this one.
