Come to the Best Practices Conference!

I hope, by now, you've seen and heard about the upcoming Best Practices Conference in Washington, DC from August 24-26. I'm presenting a couple sessions there as are many of my favorite speakers in the SQL Server and Sharepoint world.

That is why I wanted to let you know about the Free Seat Giveaway that the Best Practices Conference is doing.  All you have to do it get a bunch of friends to sign up for the conference eNewsletter and put your name down as the referral source.  The top ten referrals will receive a free conference pass for the conference as a thank you.

Here is what the conference has promised: “This is not a spam list. Your name and your friend’s name will not be sold, it will not be given to third party vendors, we won’t bombard you with unnecessary email. This is our way to stay in touch with people interested in our conference, period”.

For more details, and to register for this promotion:

The promotion ends at 11:55pm EST, Friday, July 24th, so hop on it!

And as always, let me know what you think.

I have never heard of this conference, is there usually a good attendance by the user group?

Hi Keith,

This is the first year for the conference.  So there's no telling how strong the local user group attendance will be.  We'll just have to see.  Otoh, if you go to the site and try the "Contact Us" bottom, I'm quite sure you'll get a response.  In addition, I'm contacting the coordinator now to see if he'll respond here.

Many thanks,

Kevin is correct, it is the first time that SQL Server has been added to the mix at the Best Practices Conference.  While SQL numbers are expected be be lower because of it, it provide those in attendance with a great speaker expert/attendee ratio.  However, there is no telling how each UG will attend.
