This is going to be a great conference! There's a great collection of speakers on a wide variety of topics. See the speakers page:

This event starts with a cocktail reception, followed by three days of meetings, presentations, and panel discussions.

I'm giving the keynote speech, and planning to hang out for the whole event. Luckily, I know a lot of the people who are presenting. But there are plenty of others I haven't met yet.

I'm working to get organizer Lori Tisinai on the SMB Community Podcast. Stay tuned for that!

Special Offer:

I am offering a $100 scholarship to any woman who is a first-time attendee of this conference. Contact the organizers to claim your registration discount.

I was very impressed that about 25% of last year's attendees were women. We absolutely need more women in IT. And attending professional events is a great way to get started.

Overall, the pricing for this three-day event is VERY reasonable. Please join us.
