Those of you who've already finished your holiday shopping know the advantages of starting early: better prices, bigger selection, and more time to consider your options. Well, the same holds true for the 2011 IBM technical conferences. Now's the perfect time to submit speaker proposals, take advantage of early-bird rates, and plan your strategy.
First up -- and right around the corner -- is Lotusphere 2011 (30 January - 3 February in Orlando, Florida). Learn how the latest Lotus products can help you collaborate effectively. Heads up: The early-bird rate expires in just a couple of days! A few weeks later, Pulse 2011 sets up shop in Las Vegas (27 February - 2 March). This premier service management event can help your organization transform the way you design, deliver, and manage business services. Then on 10 - 15 April, we'll return to Las Vegas for our annual SOA and WebSphere conference, Impact 2011. Find out about innovative new ways to work smarter and make your business more agile. And if you're already thinking ahead to June, consider joining us in Orlando (again) for the Innovate 2011 conference (5 - 9 June), where we'll show you how software innovation can lead to better business results.
Bonus: These web sites are available 24 hours a day for those of you who prefer to do business in the wee hours.
