“The most awesome stage”
Last year, Facebook's VP of Design thought the TNW Conference main stage was the best she'd ever been on.
So, there you go. We hope your time off request at work doesn’t need to be changed, but if it does — you’ve got time.
It’s also curious that Google is migrating away from Moscone West. While Pichai says Shoreline is a return to I/O’s home, it’s a curious move for such a huge conference. Shoreline is also a lot of outdoor seating, so if there’s unusually inclimate weather, I sure hope Google has a contingency plan.
It’s worth noting that Google’s I/O conference attendance is based on a lottery system, so don’t bet the farm you’ll get in.
