The Society of Typographic Aficionados is thrilled to be bringing TypeCon2011: Surge to New Orleans, Louisiana — July 5th – 10th, 2011.

The conference headquarters will be the Royal Sonesta — so mark your calendars.

Located in the heart of the French Quarter on the world-famous Bourbon Street, the Royal Sonesta hotel is distinctively European in flavor, yet unmistakably New Orleans.

Discounted room rates will be available for attendees staying at the conference hotel. Information regarding rates, booking details, as well as the call for program proposals will be posted within the next several weeks.
