Podcamp, accommodations AND a cruise??

Halifax-Dartmouth FerryIt’s true! Here in Halifax we know how to treat visitors right. That’s why we’re doing all we can to make your visit for Podcamp Halifax as comfy-cozy as an East Coast January can be.

Two generous volunteers have already started up our Adopt-a-Podcamper program to match visitors with free lodgings courtesy of local social media enthusiasts. Hey, if you can hit them up on Twitter then you can certainly crash on their couch, right? If you’re looking for a place to rest your head after a long day of innovation, you can submit your name here and we’ll do all we can to help you out.Also, for anyone with an extra bed in the Halifax area, please let us know if you’re able to host a Podcamper. Don’t worry, they shouldn’t need much more than some triscuits and a wifi connection…

Special Hotel Rates:

If you prefer to be waited on with a harbour view (or close to it), take advantage of our Podcamp rate at the Halifax Marriott. Located directly on the harbour and connected by pedway to the Casino for all you high-rollers, you’ll be a two-dollar, eight-minute ferry ride away from the Podcamp facilities and just a short walk from all of downtown Halifax’s many amenities.

You can book your guestroom now by calling the main reservation line at 1-800-943-6760 or do so in typical Podcamp-style online by visiting http://www.halifaxmarriott.com. Be sure to quote PODPODA as the group booking code.

The Marriott offer is valid until January 14, 2009.  Let us know if you book after this date to see about extensions.

Also if you want to wakeup and roll down the street to the event within seconds the Super 8 Hotel in Downtown Dartmouth has also offered attendees an $ 89.00 for those who want to be right up the street.  Just ask for the rate assoicated to “Podcamp”.

Thanks to both businesses for the offer.

  1. The Marriot does not appear to be accepting that promo code for the 24th – I’d like to drive down on the Saturday before and leisurely attend things, then drive back to Fredericton.

    Is it too late to use the code, or does it only apply to Sunday?

  2. I just emailed you back Mark on the updates. You should be able to use the code and the Super 8 in Dartmouth has just given us a special rate too.
