Hello Everyone! 

We have been busy planning things with for Everything Open Gladstone
2024 and we thought we would put together a bit of a summary of what is
happening so far: 


We officially have 48 days left. Have you bought your tickets yet? While
you are at it we have Swag available for purchase via Redbubble at:
https://www.redbubble.com/shop/ap/158192555 [1] We have everything from
mouse pads, to hats, to blankets, to t-shirts, to hoodies, and
duvet/doona covers for sale. Someone pretty please buy the throw
blanket! (it looks so soft) 


Tickets are still available and will be until the last day of the
conference. But don't leave it until the last minute because you're
running out of time. 


Speaking of travel… although there are many ways to get to Gladstone for
Everything Open 2024 [2], we heard from many potential Delegates that
airfares between Brisbane (BNE) and Gladstone (GLT) were cost
prohibitive, dampening enthusiasm to attend #EverythingOpen 2024. 

While we can't spin up a competing airline (Penguin Air, anyone?), we
_can_ put on a bus from Brisbane to Gladstone, and return from Gladstone
to Brisbane, to get you to and from the conference. We are providing
these busses for $40 each way. You can buy your bus ticket on the
website with your conference tickets at


We have announced 3 amazing keynotes so far: 

 	* Professor Aaron Quigley from CSIRO's Data61
 	* Jana Dekanovska from CrowdStrike
 	* Geoff Huston from Asia Pacific Network Information Centre (APNIC)

We have one more announcement to come as well and we are VERY excited to
have this person join us in Gladstone 


We have some incredible speakers joining us. Gernot Heiser, J Rosenbaum,
Christopher Biggs, Liz Quilty, Clinton Roy, and Elise Elkerton just to
name a few. Stay tuned for more speaker announcements :)
