Hi Everyone,

In an update to my original post for TechDays 2010 we now have confirmed prices and venues.  As well, the web sites is making great progress and we are on track for the launch date as registration goes live on the 10th May.  The session tracks have almost been confirmed and that means we’ll soon be on to building the sessions. Damir is leading the ongoing efforts with the team and many subject  matter experts across the country to make sure we get it right and they help grow the right skills.  I’ll let Damir update you on that when they are officially confirmed.  In addition, Rick has just started reaching out to the local communities and there is lots of opportunity to get involved please feel free to connect with him!

Where’s it Happening!

I’m sure you all know by know that we have expanded to another city this year and now we have eight technical conferences across Canada to support the local ICT ecosystems!  Here’s a list of all the TechDays 2010 venues.

World Trade and Convention Centre Halifax Halifax November 2-3 World Trade & Convention Centre

Winnipeg December 7-8 Winnipeg Convention Centre

Keeping it Affordable

I’m happy to announce that the full conference price for 2010 is $699.99 + applicable taxes and similar to past years we done our best to make this conference really affordable for all!  You can take advantage of a $349.99 early bird price for a limited time.  This amounts to an approximate 50% savings off the regular ticketed price.

Once again registration goes live on May 10th! Please visit www.techdays.ca at that time for more information and register to take advantage of this savings!  As well, if you are a past alumni of TechDays 2009 please watch your mail and inboxes as I will be sending you a personal invitation for TechDays 2010 in the first week of May.

Thanks again for your support and I’m really looking forward to see and meeting you in person at the event.   As always please do not hesitate to reach out and contact me directly or be part of the conversation on twitter by following the hashtag #techdays_ca.

All the best,

Sig
