4. What all happen at hostingcon?
5. For people who went please sum up what you thought about it!
1) Quite a few.
2) See 1.
3) Anywhere from $135 to $300 depending on when you registered for the convention tickets. Hotel rooms were $135 per night at the Hyatt.
4) Lectures, speeches, exhibits, and meeting people.
5) Convention was great and got the chance to meet quite a few interesting people. Hyatt for the most part was mediocre except for the hot rooms, expensive t-mobile wifi that didn't work, parking that costs too much, and no restaurants within a decent distance from the hotel to eat at.
Summary: Convention was excellent. Location wasn't.
