Red-eye flights are for the birds. Sure, Vegas and Orlando are fantastic places to host an IT conference, but that doesn't mean they're convenient for everyone. (I'm talking to you, Hong Kong, Amsterdam, and Sydney.) If you wish our Impact or Innovate conferences were held just a little closer to home, you're in luck: We're hitting the road!
Our Impact comes to you and Innovate around the world events allow you to take advantage of unparalleled learning and networking opportunities at a location near you (like, say, Mexico City, Delhi, or Tokyo). Immerse yourself in WebSphere, BPM, SOA, and cloud computing technologies at a local Impact event, or explore the leading edge of software and systems at Innovate around the world. Either way, you'll want to register now -- both tours are already in progress, and who knows when we'll be back in your neighborhood?
Because, let's face it, people weren't meant to sleep on planes.
Until next week,
