"Hi Everyone:

"Not good news I'm afraid. Our after dinner guest speaker, Andrew Adamson, sends his apologies. Unfortunately, due to a crazy increase in workload for his new projects he will not be able to join you all at the conference dinner. He really tried hard to fit us into his new work schedule but in the end it wasn't possible.

"He wishes us all the best for the conference"

Richard Elliott, for the ASCILITE 2002 Programme Committee

7 November 2002

The ASCILITE 2002 committee regrets to inform anyone that wishes to register for the conference that as of today (Wednesday 6 November) the conference dinner venue is now FULL.

Pressure on venues is Auckland is extremely high because of Christmas and of course the America's cup. The committee secured the largest venue it could in downtown Auckland. This venue has a maximum capacity of 250.

The ASCILITE 2002 committee apologises profusely to those that won't be able to attend the main dinner but assures them that an extra dinner activity is being planned for late registrants and for those who do not have access to a dinner ticket.
