You will receive a confirmation email before the event.

This usually follows a day or so before the event.

"This usually follows a day or so before the event. "

IMHO - not a good way to handle that.

wrocka, no need for a formal invite on that one. You won't be able to move in the pubs near the hotel without running into webmasters. Just drop in, grab a beer, and strike up a conversation (i.e. 'are you here for the conference?') and chances are you'll be speaking to someone attending the conference.

So if we registered the day this was announced via e-mail/forums but don't have a confirmation should we just show up and see what happens?

I guess we just see what happens. I may have a laptop to see an email but I don't bring a printer with me. If they think they can send something out that is required ot be printed out at the very last day, it's sad planning.

Last time I didn't get confirmation for the Google lunch, they checked registration at the door. I wouldn't worry about the email registration.

I emailed adwords support asking for assitance with an invitation to the Google luncheon.

They replied that registration is being handled by WebmasterWorld.

The went on to say that their Product Specialist believes
should have no trouble getting into the 'Google Lunch' session, but if I have any difficulties, he suggested that I visit the Google booth.

If it's like the Yahoo! sponsored lunch yesterday, you just grab your lunch box and head into the hall. No checking of lists or anything of that nature.

Incidentally, Google Base already is live, Google Analytics is already live, and Matt Cutts just pointed out that he didn't want to leak the lunch announcement until "it is live."

Should be an interesting lunch. :)

Either Matt gave us a Red Hearing, or an introduction was postponed.

I'm betting on the Red Hearing, nothing about the Google presentation felt improvised.

Wish they had XXL T-shirts:-)

Matt had said they would briefly cover Google Analytics at the lunch, and gave the impression there would be another new announcement.

My money is on postponement.

Two things struck me funny about all the "pre-registration" hysteria around these events - neither Google nor Yahoo seemed to care about it as EVERYONE was welcome, nobody checked any list.

Maybe it was just a plot to get head count for lunch, etc.
