Getting ready for the ITpro conference in New Orleans? I am.
Nancy sent out this message last week!
For those coming in for the Brain Explosion, you will be able to check in for the conference early. For all others we will have a registration table outside the St. Charles room starting at 4:00pm on Thursday, June 7. The welcome reception will begin in the St. Charles ballroom at 6:00pm.
The weather in New Orleans is very hot this time of year so please pack accordingly. During the conference keep in mind that the hotel overcompensates on the air conditioning so while it may be blistering outside, inside the conference room may be a bit chilly. In years past the nightly events would take place outside, but this year is somewhat different. This year, each night will be either entirely indoors or offering a combined indoor and outdoor activity so there’s two important things to note:
1. We have reversed the Friday and Saturday night events from normal and what was originally posted for this year. The revision is that the “choose your restaurant night” is going to be Friday this year, so set your reservations accordingly for Friday (not Saturday).
2. Saturday night’s party will NOT be a casual night, we are instead having a traditional summer cocktail party and upscale old New Orleans dinner! Ladies are invited to wear a comfortable summer dress, skirts or slacks. Gentleman, please be business casual with a white shirt preferred, but no shorts or jeans for this night. Think of this as a costume party!
Wireless internet will be available in the conference rooms during the show.
We think it is fabulous that so many of you are bringing your spouses this year. I have prepared to have the hotel concierge meet with the spouses on Friday morning to discuss options to see the sights of New Orleans. Spouses should come prepared with questions and will have the option to sign up for various sight-seeing adventures.
If you have not already done so, please send me your travel itinerary. I will do my best to pair up those that are arriving at the same time. For those that arrive at times that don’t mesh with others, I will send you transportation options next week.
