Office 2.0 conference news

I received an e-mail from Ismael Ghalimi of IT|Redux who is organizing the Office 2.0 Conference and things are heating up. There are now 52 speakers and over 150 attendees signed up to engage in panel discussions and in workshops at this inaugural event. If you're thinking about attending, you might want to get your plans made.

I received an e-mail from Ismael Ghalimi of IT|Redux who is organizing the Office 2.0 Conference and things are heating up. There are now more than 50 speakers/facilitators and over 150 115 attendees signed up to engage in panel discussions and in workshops at this inaugural event. If you're thinking about attending, you might want to get your plans made. Due to the rapid response to the event (which will be capped at around 250 attendees to keep the format workable and productive), the early bird discount will only be available through September 1. By my reckoning, that's tomorrow. If you register before the end of the day tomorrow you save $200 ($395 versus the full price of $595).

The event will be held on October 11 and 12 at the amazing St. Regis Hotel in San Francisco - truly a five-star venue and the list of participants is very extensive and impressive. So is the proposed agenda and outcomes:
