It is with a heavy heart that I send this email and regret to announce that I will be indefinitely postponing the SMB Focus 2007 Conference Event originally scheduled for November. A number of business and personal reasons have led to making this difficult decision.
I know that many of you have already booked flights to Sydney for the event, and any loss you might suffer from cancelling them weighs heavily I can assure you. I will be issuing a full refund of the conference and any accommodation booked through the Menzies Hotel and by some way of apology offer you a complimentary years’ subscription to SBSfaq.com. These actions will be complete by the end of next week.
The support and devotion that you have shown, the sponsors who are committed to supporting our community and the participation of international speakers has been outstanding and although this particular event will not be taking place, it has only deepened my commitment to the community.
Plans to run a special edition Sydney User Group with international presence is still under discussion, I will keep the community informed of progress.
In addition to this, TrendMicro have indicated that within the next 24 hours they will be able to confirm that they are going to hold a Security focused community event on Friday 23rd November at The Menzies hotel in Sydney – the same location that was previously to be used for the SMBfocus Conference Event. Information will be posted here and on SBSFaq.com once it becomes available.
I appreciate your understanding and support and look forward to meeting you all at some point in time. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me directly.
