1 Week until Social Connections VI in Prague

Wow…where did the time go!?  Only one week and we’ll be in Prague at Social Connections VI.   We certainly are excited and are really looking forward to the event!

A couple of interesting notes:

  • Social Connections VI will be our biggest event!  We’ve maxed out the venue with 250 attendees registered.
  • Social Connections VI is also our biggest event in terms of sponsors – a total of 11.  We are so thankful to have each and every one of them.  We couldn’t put on the event, and make it FREE, without them.Prague-SqColor-Final
  • Hopefully most of you have already checked out our jam packed agenda.  We encourage you to create an account on the site and plan out your days.  The site has a nice mobile version also, so you can easily view your schedule during the event.
  • There are still a few spots left in Luis Suarez’s Masterclass scheduled on Wednesday 18th of June , “From Adoption to Adaptation, From Enablement into Engagement“.   It’s not too late to register!
  • As you travel to Prague, don’t forget about our tips to make the trip to the Hotel Ambassador a bit easier (and cheaper!).

As we lead up to and during the event, even if you are not attending…be sure to get involved in the discussion on Twitter by tweeting and following the #soccnx hashtag.

If there are any last minute questions, feel free to contact us via email.

Safe travels to all & see you in Prague!

By Social Connections

Although IBM Connections has been in the marketplace since 2007 it is still a relatively new product by IBM/Lotus standards. The larger LUGs (Lotus User Groups – such as UKLUG and ILUG) tend to focus on traditional Lotus technologies – Notes, Domino, a little Sametime and TDI with lots of the newer XPages thrown in the mix. The WUGs (WebSphere User Groups) tend to concentrate on core WebSphere technologies such as the Application Server, Portal and Process Server. In addition, these events can be very technical in nature. Therefore we feel there is a definite space for a Connections user group with a strong focus on social collaboration technology, aimed at both existing and prospective customers and partners, and at individuals with both business and technical perspectives. We meet twice annually, in late Spring/early Summer and again in late Autumn/Fall, and from 2015 onwards we will be splitting the events between the USA and Europe. In addition, through the use of these great social tools, we aim to keep a dynamic and lively online community going all-year round! The events will be social in nature, with a strong desire for real face-to-face networking and knowledge sharing as well as delivery of useful content.
