FOWD Tour launches!

Hey All

So FOWD London has been and gone in a flash. Thanks to all who joined us in Kensington. We hope you had fun! For those of you who couldn’t make it along – we have uploaded some of the videos onto the site if you want to check them out.

With FOWD London done and dusted – it was quite literally straight on with the FOWA Tour! We had a great time traveling to Edinburgh, Leeds, Cambridge and Bristol, meeting some cool folks along the way. We will be uploading the video from the tour very soon so keep an eye out on the site for those.

So what’s next?

How could we forget about you lovely design peeps?! Next on the agenda is the brand spanking new FOWD Tour! We are taking it on the road in September and bringing some top talks right to your door. We’ll be visiting:

Belfast – 2nd September
Bristol – 9th September
Glasgow – 14th September
Leeds – 16th September

We have released a limited amount of Earlybird and student tickets. Earlybirds are £39+VAT and Student tickets are £19+VAT.

Once these have run out tickets will rise to the full price of £59+VAT so you’ve got to be quick.

So what will you get for your money?

In each location we will have a morning of unique tutorials from some of the industries leading professionals including, *Andy Clarke *Simon Collison, *Brendan Dawes and *Drew McLellan. This will all be topped off with an afternoon of fabulous talks. We’ll also throw in some speed networking and of course the obligatory party in the evening:-)

Call for local speakers

We’re inviting one local speaker from each region to submit a proposal for a 30 minute slot. So if you have an idea about what the ‘Future of Web Design’ holds and you’re just bursting to tell it to the world, then now is your chance.

All you have to do is fill out this form and the lucky winner will be picked in the months leading up to the event in September.

For more information about the tour just visit the site and don’t forget to keep checking for updates.

Hopefully see you on the road.

FOWD London only 3 weeks away!

Hey guys

To give you a heads up, we will be releasing the 10 remaining student passes today (6th April) at 3pm! These are going to sell out fast so make sure you’re ready and waiting! Student Pass

If you’re not a student but would still like to attend you can still grab your passes for FOWD. It’s only 3 weeks away though so if you haven’t done so already you’d better hurry!

*Party Party!

I’m happy to announce that the official FOWD wrap party will be taking place after the conference on 30th April at ONANON which is located just down the road in the heart of the city – Piccadilly Circus.

The party will kick off at 7.30pm and will finish in the early hours of Friday morning – that is if you can make it that late;) It’s a pretty big venue so look out for signs directing you to the correct bar… we want to make sure you all make use of the complimentary drinks!

Just a note: The bar says it’s over 21’s on the website – but don’t worry it’s over 18’s for us. Although it’s probably a good idea to bring some ID if you’re a babyface! ☺

*Getting to the Party

By Tube: You need to jump on the Circle line from ‘High Street Kensington’ and at ‘South Kensington’ change onto the Piccadilly Line until you reach Piccadilly Circus.

By Bus: The No 9 Bus leaves from outside High Street Kensington station every 5-6 mins from Stop: B (towards Aldwych) and takes about 20 minutes.

By Taxi: You can grab a taxi from the Kensington High street. Fares range from £11- £18 depending on traffic/waiting times etc. If you want to take a cab maybe you can find someone to share with☺

You can plan your journey here

*Workshop day and Chill out evening

For those of you joining us for the workshops, we will be organising a relaxing evening of drinks on Friday 1st May. It will be the perfect way to unwind and relax after the hectic preceding days.

We’re still looking for a venue so watch this space for details.

*Announcing Competition Winner

If you have placed a FOWD badge on your site in the chance of winning a conference pass, we should be announcing this at the end of this week or beginning of the next week. The winner will be contacted and announced on our blog as soon as this takes place.

This year it’s going to be extra special! With our fantastic speakers, free Uni sessions and a few little surprises along the way…it really is not to be missed! But then again we would say that wouldn’t we☺
