InfoBlast to Wikimania 2018 Attendees

Irene Tait

Hello all!

A more expansive version of this email was sent out last night via Eventbrite, but I’ve posted a stripped down version here for those of you whose spam filters don’t get along with Eventbrite.  We have some important information that we would like to convey to you to insure that conference continues to go smoothly.


Your lanyard guarantees you unlimited access to any and all of the food stands throughout the four levels (3 through Ground), which are open from 10 am to 4pm each day. Your badge also gets you into the lunch buffet on the ground floor, which has a more expanded menu for those of you looking for vegetarian or vegan options.


We have a limited number of people we can accommodate at the closing party, so tickets have been issued to people whose registration guarantees access to the closing party. If you have any questions about this, come by the reg desk to discuss with me. 

However, we do have some extra tickets left! We will be releasing all of those left over tickets at 12:45pm on Sunday, during the lunch break but before the lightning talks. Those can be claimed on a first-come first-serve basis at the registration desk on the 3rd floor at that time.

Registration that afternoon closes at 2pm. At that point, any unclaimed tickets will be handed off to the organizers of the event, who will give them out at the door on a first-come first-serve basis as well.

Buses will depart the hotel for the Closing Party between 6:15 - 6:40pm. Buses will return starting at 10:30pm. The restaurant closes at 12:00am, and the final bus will leave for the hotel at that time.


Black lanyards indicate that the attendee does not want to be photographed. We ran out of the beaded lanyards during the pre-conference so some delegates were issued plain yellow lanyards. But we have more in stock! If you got a plain lanyard but would like to change it in for a beaded one, swing by the regdesk and we’ll get you sorted.


We will be releasing any unclaimed tees Sunday afternoon for those of you who would like to grab one.

Thank you all so much! Welcome to Wikimania 2018, and I hope you enjoy the remainder of the conference!

On behalf of the organizers,

Irene Tait
