The event costs $30 for one day and $45 for both days. This includes six hours of hands-on training, lunch, keynote and some lovely door prizes. Such a deal you will not find anywhere else! For more more see the Other Stuff page.
Bring a laptop, bring your curiosity and bring a friend.
- This is a hands-on event. You MUST supply your own laptop.
- There are classes for all levels. Make sure that when you sign up for a class you have read the title, description and level. If you are in something too simple, you'll be bored. If you go into something over your head, everyone else will be bored while the instructor and/or assistant work to catch you up. There is something to suit every need. No crowding.
- We used to do this for free. We really wish we still could, but too many people decided since there was no cost there was no value and skipped it without letting us know. That meant a lot of wasted food, time and resources. So we have to charge. This year we also have to charge for the honor of registering. We hope to make it cheaper next year. Oh yeah, the requirement here? You must pay to get in.
The event takes place in the IU Kelley School of Business Godfrey Graduate and Executive Education Center, located at 1275 E. Tenth St., Bloomington, Indiana 47405 (NW corner of Tenth St and Fee Ln) on the lovely campus of Indiana University.
The event hotel is the Bloomington Hilton Garden Inn (HGI). Unfortunately the conference rate expired on August 18. Please see the Hotel & Travel page for HGI details as well as other housing options.
NOTE: We've also set up a page to facilitate ride and/or room sharing. When you come to BFusion/BFlex remind me to tell you why it's not a forum page. We'll have a real forum next year.
Food & Water
Registration includes lunch. You will be asked for your dietary preferences during registration. We try to accommodate as many needs as we can including vegetarian and vegan options. Budget permitting we will also have snacks between sessions, but you might want to throw a snack bar in your bag.
There will be soft drinks and coffee, but no bottled water. We think outside the bottle. We will have water coolers available and strongly encourage participants to bring their own reusable water bottle.
