There is some sad news about BlackBEAT this year.
Changes for Black BEAT 09!
Unfortunately, we couldn’t BEAT the economy, even though we had high hopes. Record low registration did not afford us the opportunity to produce the annual conference in a manner befitting to our family. Thus, we must inform you that Black BEAT 09′s 3 day conference has been modified to a one day event. We apologize for this inconvenience, as we know that many of you are using your vacation hours to join us. Please continue to read for refund and other information.
HOWEVER….. . the BEAT goes ON!
In revamping, we’ve planned a special one day 10 hour event, “SURVIVOR’S SATURDAY”, to gather as family and to maintain our BB spirit and momentum. The Caribbean theme survives…we’ re stranded on an island (with a dungeon), so bring your survival gear (toy bags) also!
Our 10 hour marathon will include catered dinner, beverages and munchies, along with several exciting workshops! Presentations will be announced soon, so stay put and tuned in! The dungeon atmosphere, Dom/sub auction, food and play at The Crucible awaits. Street parking is available. Our local vendors will also be there!
If you’d like to stay overnight, a block of only 20 rooms have been reserved at a DC Hotel with affordable rates and minutes from the Crucible . The DC Hotel offers a rate of $89.00 single double per night plus tax and a rate of $109.00 triple quad per night plus tax. Tax is 14.5% in Washington . They offer an all you can eat Full American Breakfast Buffet for $17.00 per person inclusive. Rollaways are available at $20.00 per night per room per night. Microwaves and small refrigerators are available as well at $20.00 each per day.
AND….A *Complimentary Drop off* Shuttle will take you to downtown locations!
If planning to attend, we will forward you the information to secure your room.
