How is it March already? For us, it’s a very busy conference prep month. We’re just one month away from our first Conference of the year, Enterprise Data World 2013 Conference & Expo, April 28 through May 2 in San Diego, California. In addition, we’ve just released the agenda and opened registration for the Data Governance and Information Quality Conference June 17-20, also in San Diego, California. And we’ve just announced a call for presentations for our NoSQL Now! Conference & Expo August 20 – 22 in San Jose, California. Busy month indeed!
We are very excited about Enterprise Data World. If you haven’t heard, we’re breaking records this year. We have more sponsors than ever and attendee registration is way up over this time last year. I hope and expect this will be the trend for all conferences this year. Why you ask? Of course people are traveling a little more. The economy is a little better. And I think a lot of it has to do with you, our subscribers, who have followed us in on the website throughout the year in our webinar series, reading our blogs and articles, and just allowing us to gain your trust that quality education is a priority for us. So thank you. This is an exceptional compliment.
The thing I love about all of our conferences of course is meeting all the people in person I’ve been working online with throughout the months and years. We will have a booth in the Expo where I will be during exhibit hours, so please stop by and say hello. We’re planning on printing up some fabulous t-shirts again, so be sure to get one. Or let me know if you have a different SWAG idea for the booth.
And always, whether it’s in person or via email, please let me know how you think things are going. I love feedback, good and bad, because we’re always looking to be better. Right now we’re thinking the homepage is looking a little cluttered and want to clear that up for you a bit. Ideas? Thoughts? What does the site need? What is it missing? What can I do to help make it as effective as possible for you in your search for education on Data Management?
