Last Thursday afternoon, we announced that Friday July 11 would be a one-day early bird encore sale of tickets. Unfortunately, something very unexpected came up and the ticket sale didn’t happen as planned. But, at 12:00pm Monday,  July 14 until Wednesday, July 16 at 12:00pm, we’re going to make the early bird price available for 48 hours!

That means you get $70 off the price of a full conference pass if you buy in those two days. This is the last chance you’ll have to get such a great price for your ticket to Social Capital!

The Social Capital Conference is the brain-child of Lara Wellman, but I’ve been involved from the minute she asked me if I would help three and a half years ago. The two of us (along with many others who have helped over the years) have put a great deal of work into this conference and it has truly been a labour of love. We believed that Ottawa needed a social media conference. We believed that we had more than enough expertise in the Ottawa area (and Toronto and Montreal) to create a truly great learning experience for attendees. We believed that the Ottawa community would band together and support such an undertaking.

In every way, these beliefs have been proven true over and over. As we prepare for our fourth conference, Lara and I have reached the very difficult decision to make this our final year running the conference. We don’t know if the conference will live on with new owners/organizers yet, but we know that the time is right for us to move on.

We want to thank each and every one of you who have been involved in organizing, volunteering, or who have attended since 2011. Your support and encouragement and fandom have meant so much to us. It’s a bittersweet decision because we love #SoCapOtt so much. However, we’re really looking forward to what will come next for Wellman Wilson Consulting as we transition away from running the conference.

If you want to join us for this final year of the conference, make sure you buy your ticket now!

We hope we see you there!

~Karen (& Lara)
