    Working backwards from 300. Pretty sure that would accelerate sales. Most importantly, it would help folks get a sense whether they need to act quickly. For many, the time commitment and cost of travel outweigh the conference costs, so in that respect providing info like tickets remaining is helpful.

    hmmm. You're assuming registration needs a boost?

    There are a lot (a LOT) of details to be taken care of for this event & the people volunteering their time to get those details done all have day jobs, too. Adding a counter is a 'nice to have', perhaps for next year. :)

    Maybe we can do what for tracking MS reservations. We can start a thread and folks can post after they sign up

    Before someone jump on my post, I am kidding.

    Did anybody manage to get noon on the nose? Or was 12:01 the earliest?

    Maybe you could give occasional updates Bonnie : ) on remaining reservations.

    I am curious about how many have signed up. I hope it's a quick sellout!

    So it appears we will def sell out (you never know with this kind of stuff, especially the first year). The experienced folks handling our registration logistics have said that the registration rate is way above average. Some of us have bets on when, exactly, all 300 seats are taken.

    I'd rather not give the numbers because we do seem to have some journalists picking up info here and there. But I'm smiling over the numbers. And you'll see registration go to 'sign up for the waiting list' when all seats have been sold.

    We (TMC forum members) rock.

    I'm seeing a lot on the forum about Teslive, but no idea what it is. Any place to see a concise write up?

    Just registered! Last 3 digits of receipt# could mean something, maybe? They are suspiciously similar to a number between 1 & 300 that would represent several days of sign-ups. Coincidence?

    My last 3 number are 597 so doesn't seem to be an order sequence

    OMG, we're going to start this spreadsheet business, aren't we? Next thing you know, analysts will be picking up on it and thinking it can be correlated to the stock price and production rate.

    ... wait until people start comparing hotel rooms. "How come I reserved my room first, but he checked in before I did? ... oh, yeah, I see. He arrived a day earlier. But still!" This will be fun!

    And... speaking of hotels...

    Being a Marriott points collector... I'm inclined to stay at the Marriott adjacent to the factory (on points).

    Are there any gatherings that involve the negotiated-rate hotel ? (Basically, would I ultimately wish "Man, I wish I had just paid for the Crown...")

    Yes, we'll be using some of the meeting space at the hotel. The Marriott would have been an ideal choice, for many reasons, but they were not available on any of the dates that Elon was available.

    Elon won.

    bonnie - what's the story with the hotel. I Selected that I needed a hotel - do I need to call the hotel to confirm the reservation? What's the rate for the hotel? etc
