I'm going, but I really have no idea what it's about or what to expect. Anyone know any more about it?
I think I have a fairly good idea by keeping track of what Maven is doing but no, not 100%. I am 100% excited about going though and appreciate what they're doing to present us with, what I believe is, an opportunity. I look forward to meeting you.
I'm looking forward to meeting you and the other Hubbers headed to Whistler too! I'm also curious how many Hubbers are attending?
I am going. I love Whistler (Vancouver is absolutely stunning) and am very excited to learn about opportunities with Maven.
I'm flying out Tuesday night so not to rush on Wednesday. Looking forward to meeting you guys, and the team.
Me too, Glynn. Got a bit of business in Vancouver.
No business, but planning a couple of days after the conference in Vancouver, just looking around and being a tourist.
Also flying out Tuesday and staying over an extra night hopefully since it takes a full day for me to get there what with the trip from Vancouver. Anyone else going from the Midwest? Has anyone gotten a schedule yet besides just the part about Friday morning?
I'm flying in Wed. morning from OH. I have my flight schedule and info provided by the MCC link. I'm guessing we'll get the remaining details this week.
Natalie, I haven’t received a schedule either. But I remember seeing it via the link in the first email.
Dan - what MCC link are you referring to? I've been in contact with the travel agent, but haven't really received confirmation.
I'm sure I'm going to regret not planning some extra time in Vancouver, but I just didn't get my ducks in row to plan for it.
Donna, the travel agent sent me the final flight itinerary for my approval, which I gave. But I haven’t received confirmation either.
That link Dan mentioned was in the first email, as I recall.
Sorry, I thought you meant that you had received travel info through some link. But I assume you just mean the conference link. Yes, I hope we receive more info this week. I'm looking forward to learning more!
I wish I had planned an extra day or two to check out Vancouver after the conference. But the flight itinerary was already approved. I wasn’t thinking when they asked me for my flight preferences. However, I do look forward to meeting all of you. It would be nice if they provided a list of those attending. I’m sure there will be more than those of us in this thread.
Does everyone have their arrangements for this? I don't have flight info yet.
What's this all about? Haven't heard anything about it although as I am not in the US maybe it is a US invite only thing...
You do have to reside in North America. Robin mentioned that in another thread. I really can't say beyond that what criteria there was because I don't know. I just know they started with some and have mentioned the possibility of more in the future.
That's one good thing about the www. and the internet. I have not lived in North America, or India, or Japan, or China. But the linking www. enable me and others travel virtually down there.
No. "Whistler anyone" can mean the same thing as the whistleblower. Now, is it a US thing? It is everywhere.
Yes, I gave airport, preferred airlines, days and passport info. Maybe tomorrow. Thanks.
Hope all of you will post here about the events and happenings.
I still don't have any kind of info. I'm getting a bit concerned as I've sent a number of messages over the past 3 days but haven't received a reply. Did you give them actual flights and they approved them or vice versa? I thought they gave us the flights and we approved them. I don't know what else to do. Does anyone have a phone number for any of the folks involved in the arrangements? Thanks!
They asked me to give them my preferences. I sent them a complete flight itinerary that I chose and they approved it. Then they booked it and sent me the booking confirmation.
Have you checked your spam folder?
I’ll send you the contacts I have been in touch with by email. I'm not sure it's allowed to post it here. Look for it.
I posted this in another thread. I was invited but cannot attend. I am very interested in what they are offering though. For those of you who attend, please come back and let us know in the forums what the program they will be laying out looks like. IDK if those of us invited but unable to attend will be included in whatever program they will be laying forth or not, but I would be interested in knowing some details just in case.
Safe travels to all of you.
I'm sure we'll all be happy to fill others in on what occurs, what sessions were held and what programs they might be thinking of laying our or changes they might make when we return. Not sure what type of organization there will be in terms of HP folks getting together perhaps or a chance for us to come up with questions we might want to ask. Will touch base after return. Thanks for the well wishes.
What is Whistler and what has it to do with Maven?
Whistler is a place in Canada and some of us are going to attend a conference Maven is hosting.
I wish I lived closer. Please, when you come back? Will you tell me all about the lessons' learned?
What is the conference about? Why would Maven host a conference?
I can only speculate about the conference content but I believe it's intent is to strengthen the foundation of what they're trying to do with HP and Say Media and independent writers.
I imagine they want to meet top Hubbers and discuss things going forward. It does seem like a way to show to people they mean business. I remember somebody mentioned that one of the first emails said something about Hubbers being experts in their subjects.

What fall television show are you most looking forward to?For me, I would have to say The Walking Dead. I absolutely adore this show, and can't wait to see where they take it in season 3. My runner up would have to be Homeland. Season 1 was amazing, I can't even imagine where it...
