Warpstock 2016


Warpstock is the annual conference for OS/2 and eComStation users administrators, and developers. Warpstock 2016 will be held at the Country Inn & Suites, Orlando Airport*, located at 5440 Forbes Place, Orlando, Florida 32812, Friday, November 4 through Sunday, November 6, 2016.

The Warpstock Board of Directors is working hard to make this another enjoyable and informative event. We invite you to participate, either as a presenter or as an attendee. 2016 continues to be the year of happenings for the OS/2 community at large, and there will be a lot to discuss at this year's Warpstock!

Register before July 1 and receive a 33 1/3% early bird discount on a full conference registration or 50% off the daily rate!! Also remember to book your hotel and travel early (we have negotiated great rates for this year's event - only $84/night single or double). Come early and stay a few days to enjoy the Florida sunshine!

* Note: The hotel has no provision for giving us an online booking code, so all registrations made to count against our room block must be made via telephone and the guest must advise that he or she is with Warpstock. Registering as a Warpstock attendee keeps costs down for the event as conference room costs are reduced if we meet projected room nights. In addition, it is the way to make sure the guaranteed room rate is applied. Phone numbers are: Toll Free US: 800-456-4000    Toll: (407) 856-8896

Warpstock Corporation is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, chartered in Virginia. The Warpstock annual conference is a gathering of OS/2 users, developers, and vendors from around the world for the purpose of education and advocacy. All contributions to Warpstock are fully tax deductible in the US. Consult your tax adviser for more details.
