To continue on my last blog entry…I also got a behind the scenes look at how the conference was coming together in the Expo and general session areas.
Based on the site map below, you will notice that there are three main areas that Pulse attendees will spend much of their time during the conference.
After a very long walk down a winding hallway, you will find the registration area in the
The Pulse general sessions and Palooza area is a very different story since it is located in the MGM Grand Garden Arena, which resides closer to the casino. If you can find witchcraft eatery, then you can find the Grand Garden Arena. See pictures below.

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).
-->See examples of other IBM client success stories
To participate in the IBM client reference program, contact your IBM representative, IBM Business Partner or e-mail IBM at firstname.lastname@example.org.
