Connecting with colleagues, partners, suppliers and clients is all part of a normal day's business activities. Having immediate access to all kinds of information: many types of data, including numbers, facts and figures -- is now commonplace. That is what Lotusphere 2011 is all about, taking your collaboration to the next level.
For years, our clients and partners have been creating ways for people to connect and collaborate. Now, they're being asked to do more, respond to a changing work environment, get more business benefit out of their collaborative tools, out of their data -- and out of their people. But, how? One way is to join us at Lotusphere 2011! It's the first step on the journey to learn how to ramp up their collaborative capabilities to achieve greater business value.
Here are three important actions you can take now:
Please advise your clients and IBM Business Partners that registration is open. The Lotusphere 2011 Web site, http://www.ibm.com/lotus/lotusphere, contains information on pricing and promotions. Flexible is the word for 2011 with one-day, three-day and five-day packages - there's something for everyone.
Sponsorship and Exhibitor Sales are underway for the Product Showcase. If you have any contacts who are interested in sponsoring or exhibiting, please direct them to http://www.ibm.com/lotus/lotusphere to download materials that outline the opportunities or have them contact Nth Degree at LotusphereExhibitSales@nthdegree.com. The Lotusphere Product Showcase is always dynamic and buzzing with activity - this one promises to be the same!
Coming soon: Call for Abstracts:
Here's your chance to be a part of Lotusphere 2011 with the best seat in the house -- the one on stage! Start thinking about your submissions. Beginning later this week, the Call for Abstracts will open. Whether you're a seasoned Lotusphere speaker hoping to be back for a repeat performance, or finally ready to stand out in the crowd - we want to hear from you.
From deep-dive JumpStarts and "Show 'n Tell" sessions to the new "Business Solutions" or "Customer Case Studies" tracks, from Birds-of-a-Feather discussions to the ever popular Best Practices sessions, it's all about delivering the latest word on IBM collaboration solutions. We are looking for engineers, developers, designers, and cutting-edge IBM Business Partners, clients and industry gurus to speak.
This year we're adding a new content focus, and bringing back some old favorites. The sessions in the new "Business Solutions" track will speak directly to business leaders and line of business managers, detailing how collaboration solutions provide high value to organizations large and small, across all industries. Back by popular demand are "Customer Case Studies" - where some of the most innovative clients will speak candidly and showcase real-life scenarios of their IBM collaboration solutions.
Beginning later this week, the public submission form for speaking abstracts will be accessible from the Lotusphere website at www.ibm.com/lotus/lotusphere
Thank you for all you'll do to make Lotusphere a tremendous success!!
