Save the Date for ONA14 and Our 15th Anniversary Party!

We’re dreaming up a massively awesome celebration at digital journalism’s biggest reunion as ONA turns 15.

Keep an eye out for updates as we roll out news and special events for our birthday. Meanwhile get ready for three full days of conferencing at last year’s registration rates — one price will get you into any session or workshops, the Midway, our exposition of interactivity and innovation, and career development resources. Look for more details on programming when registration opens April 8.

ONA14 Sept. 25-27

Here’s a guide to how to get there, where you can stay and how much you should budget.

Our beautiful hotel

Reserve your room at the downtown Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers and explore the city’s great attractions, such as nearby Millennium Park, Navy Pier, the world-famous Art Institute of Chicago, Field Museum of Natural History and shopping on the Magnificent Mile. Rates for a standard room are $229 and there are a variety of transportation options to the hotel from both O’Hare International Airport and Midway Airport.

Travel deals

United Airlines is offering discounts of up to 10 percent off fares for ONA14 travel. To activate the discount, go to united.com, choose your flight times and insert ZRMU323905 in the Offer Code box. Or call a travel professional or United Meetings at (800) 426-1122, and refer to Z Code ZRMU and Agreement Code 323905.

Get ready to register for ONA14 on April 8

Expect three packed days of programming exploring the most forward-looking trends and issues in journalism, all included in your one-time registration. (Any sessions or related parties outside the hotel will be a separate registration, as always.) And look for an even bigger, more interactive Midway, where we’ll create a lively playground full of tools, journalism innovators … and whiskey tastings. (Check out last year’s here.)

The Online Journalism Awards Banquet will remain a separate low registration fee.

As past attendees know, ONA passes sell out quickly, so plan to get yours early. The sooner you register, the lower your fee.
