I’ve had a summer of tending to my enterprise customers, but October and November are when I kiss the hubby (and cat) goodbye and head for the vendor conferences. In some cases, I’m giving a presentation; in others, just checking things out and possibly blogging about what I see and hear there.
Here’s where I’ll be this fall:
- IBM’s BPM and ODM Analyst Summit
- Software AG’s Innovation World #IW13
- TIBCO’s TUCON (speaking) #TUCON2013
- SAP’s TechEd #SAPTechEd
- APQC’s Process Conference (speaking) #apqcpc
- ELO Group’s BPM Global Trends (speaking)
- Business Business Capability (speaking) #BBCCon13
- IBM’s CASCON #cascon2013
If you’re going to be at one of these events, ping me so that we can meet up, or drop by my presentation.
That looks a bit crazy (especially the part about three trips to Vegas in a month), but there are others that I’ll be missing out due to conflicts: iBPMS Expo and IBM’s IOD, to name two. Also, a couple of local Toronto events that I’ll miss because I’m travelling, including AIIM’s Information Governance seminar and IBM’s Smarter Content Summit.
Disclosure: As I discuss on my Legal page, if I attend a vendor conference to watch and blog, I am not paid but my travel expenses are covered by the vendor unless it’s in the Toronto area; if I give a presentation, it’s a pretty safe bet that I’m being paid a fee to do so. In either case, I am not compensated for anything that I write here on my blog (which the exception of the publication of my presentation slides), although it’s fair to say that vendors who host me at their conferences get more coverage simply because I have greater exposure to their products and customers. If you’re interesting in having me attend or present at one of your events in the future, drop me a line.
