Announcing the Sitepoint closing party for Web Directions

Last year, our impromptu closing night drinks at the Pumphouse Hotel Darling Harbour [1] was a great success. Tired but elated after three days of workshops and the conference, having packed up and left the venue, I walked down to the pub expecting to see a few people having a good time, and found a couple of hundred having a great time.

This year, Sitepoint have quite literally come to the party, making it an official closing night event. There’ll be drinks tokens you can win throughout the conference, and for everyone who comes to the party, as well as finger food, and DJs Cam “the man in blue” Adams, and Lucas from Sitepoint (you can catch him in Melbourne at the legendary Black Cat Cafe on Brunswick street from time to time).

So, if you are coming from out of town, get a late flight home, or even better stay another night, to get the chance to get to know others at the conference even better.

And a huge thank you to Sitepoint for all their support, and in this case making Web Directions even better.

[1]So named because it used to be the pumphouse for Sydney’s water based hydraulic system, which powered lifts and other heavy machine before electricity.
