Today we sent out a confirmation and update regarding next week's ITEXPO and I wanted to make sure my readers were aware of many of the happenings at the show. One of the more interesting questions I get in passing is - "Rich, are you still giving away a car at the show?" The answer is yes, a Honda Element and also a Honda motorcycle.
Your registration for ITEXPO is confirmed. The event starts next week at the Miami Beach Convention Center, January 20-22. The SIP Tutorial is being held on January 19th (separate registration required).
Below are some details and information that will help make your experience at ITEXPO great. As always, if you have any questions before the show, please check the event site or contact Frank Coppola.
When you arrive at the Miami Beach Convention Center, please go to Hall B and proceed to the registration counter to receive your badge. You will need a photo ID. Some of you may receive your badge in the mail before the show. If so, please bring that with you to the Convention Center. Stop by the registration counter to pick up a badge holder and your conference bag, and you're ready to go.
