Office Convention planner podcast

The Office Convention website has been updated with a link to a podcast featuring some of the convention’s planning committee — Tim Holmes, Matt Smith, Tucker Hottes, and Michele Dempsey.

The podcast discusses how last fall’s amazing weekend came together — from the initial idea, to making contact with NBC, to deciding which events would be on the schedule, to the committee’s favorite moments of the weekend.

Little tidbits about The Office cast and staff are sprinkled throughout.

All told, more than 45 cast, staff, and NBC folks attended the weekend, which is a testament to the planning committee’s hard work!

And what about a 2008 convention? No official news yet, but OfficeTally will be certain to let y’all know! (The podcast does mention a certain Dunder Mifflinite who plans to appear in Scranton during the St. Patrick’s Day parade on March 15 …)

  1. Awesome! I am positively praying for a 2008 convention. After experiencing last year’s (which I still find myself daydreaming about on an almost daily basis), I will never miss another one.

    Can’t wait to listen to the podcast! Thanks for the info!

  2. I would definitely go to another one. The first one was a blasty-blast. Hopefully they can get “The Big Four” to come to the next one, but if not, it’s not the end of the world.

  3. I hope they have a 2008 convention. I loved last year’s so much and I know a ton of my friends (who were unable to attend last year’s) are really looking forward to there being another one.

    I know that I’ll continue to attend them for as long as they want to have them.

  4. Thanks for the link! I hope-hope-hope there is one this year!! I missed the first one and after hearing how much fun it was I won’t miss another!!!

  5. I’d definitely go to a second convention. The first one was completely amazing.

    And now I have another reason to look forward to the St. Patty’s Day parade! Woo. Well, you know what they say about Scranton parties… (and it’s especially true for the parade!)

  6. Last year’s convention was so awesome. The time of year was really perfect, too; even though it rained! I hope they pick the same weekend since I have off that last friday of October every year and I have a feeling that another convention would be so much more crowded! (Especially since Steve C. said that he would come!)

  7. Oh I hope there is another convention because I’ll be in Ohio this time and I might be able to go to it! =]

  8. I had a great time at the last convention and my friends who missed it last time are hoping we can go again this year!

  9. I really hope there is an 2008 convention! Last convention was amazing. I got the $250 ticket and even as a poor college student it was worth every penny. There were so many great parts from the nighttime events to the outdoor festival to the bloggers breakfast. I know they will work out any minor details that may have been overlooked the first time.

    Cant wait till next year!!

  10. Please, Please, Please let there be another office convention. I had the best time last year, they have to do it again
