Social Connections IV – just 7 places remaining!

As I’m sure you’re aware by now, Social Connections IV is less than a month away!

Taking place in Amsterdam on 30th November 2012, this is the fourth meeting of the IBM Connections user group. With a stellar cast of presenters, the agenda is packed with must-see sessions, there’s plenty of opportunity to network with some of the most innovative Connections customers and partners, we are speed-sponsoring at the end of the day, and there is a great evening reception planned as well. An action-packed day of Social Business and IBM Connections content! Oh, and of course, it’s free!

The sad news is that we are limited on space. Despite setting an ambitious target for growth in attendance for this event, we have busted through the 170 mark and now only have 7 spaces left due to the size of the auditorium and meeting space at the IBM Forum in Amsterdam…

So, if you’d like to register for the event, do so today – else you probably won’t get in! We’ll make it easy for you:

We will collect a wait list if and when we sell out…

On the other hand, if you are registered but now cannot attend, please do go to Eventbrite and cancel your registration as this will allow others to attend in your place. We would hate to have spaces free on the day that we could have passed on to others in the community that would have valued them!

For those that are attending, we’re really looking forward to seeing you in a few weeks…

Social Connections
Although IBM Connections has been in the marketplace since 2007 it is still a relatively new product by IBM/Lotus standards. The larger LUGs (Lotus User Groups – such as UKLUG and ILUG) tend to focus on traditional Lotus technologies – Notes, Domino, a little Sametime and TDI with lots of the newer XPages thrown in the mix. The WUGs (WebSphere User Groups) tend to concentrate on core WebSphere technologies such as the Application Server, Portal and Process Server. In addition, these events can be very technical in nature. Therefore we feel there is a definite space for a Connections user group with a strong focus on social collaboration technology, aimed at both existing and prospective customers and partners, and at individuals with both business and technical perspectives. We meet twice annually, in late Spring/early Summer and again in late Autumn/Fall, and from 2015 onwards we will be splitting the events between the USA and Europe. In addition, through the use of these great social tools, we aim to keep a dynamic and lively online community going all-year round! The events will be social in nature, with a strong desire for real face-to-face networking and knowledge sharing as well as delivery of useful content.
