One of the hopping places at Pulse for the last two years has been the Pulse Client Hospitality Lounge. Conference attendees hang out there to relax between sessions, sink into one of the comfortable sofas, and grab a snack or cold beverage while checking messages or networking with colleagues. The Lounge is one way of IBM saying "Thank You" for being a part of our community. When clients sign up to be a reference, update their current solution information, or join a user community group, they received a free gift.
If you're planning on attending Pulse 2010, I encourage you to drop by the Client Hospitality and ask for details when you register at the conference. A bonus treat: You might just be able to "hang" with the two wonderful ladies below--Danyel Otteson (Tivoli User Communities) and Laura Wilkens (Tivoli Client Success Marketing).
