Umbraco Spark is an innovation conference about Umbraco.
It will be taking place at a venue called M-Shed in Bristol which is in the South West of England.
I've added it to my list of must go to conferences each year, along with codegarden in Denmark and Umbraco UK Festival in London.
As well as attending the talks and learning from them, you will get to meet lots of people from the Umbraco community and get to talk to them about what you are working on and the problems you come up against. I like to attend the conferences with an objective, last year I wanted to talk to Stephan Gay about an issue I was having with App Veyor and an Umbraco library not building properly. Actually being able to talk to him in person and show him the issue I was having helped me solve it quickly.

It is on the 6th March from 9am til 5pm then onto the evening social event near the venue until 11pm. This is optional.
It will cost £100 (+ £20 VAT)
I think you have until 20th February to buy your tickets, but it's best to book as soon as possible so you don't miss out if they sell out and so they have time to order the right amount of food, drinks and swag.
We will all get an Umbraco Spark t-shirt and beautiful notepad.
Last year there was lots of tea, coffee and water throughout the day with beers at the end of the day. The food was very nice too and it is all included in the price of the ticket.
Last year I stayed at the Mercure Bristol Holland House Hotel, which is near the venue and has a pool. It was very nice.
