Conference synopsis

The 2011 conference is now complete and it looks to have been successful. Given the economic surroundings it was encouraging to see high levels of interest recorded by many exhibitors and good attendance overall. Indeed, over 20% of the stands for 2012 in Manchester have already been sold which has never been seen before.

I hope everyone got out of it what they intended, if you attended, look out for an email over the next couple of days that will have a link to an online survey for the conference. This is important for two reason as it allows us to do things better next year, and also you get entered into a draw to win an iPad2 – so just in case keep an eye on the Spam folder as well, and if you haven’t already mark up an email from the user group in your email application as not spam to make sure.

For some overview video footage of the conference go to: http://www.youtube.com/user/UKISUG and over the coming weeks we will be putting more footage of the keynotes onto the UG youtube channel.
