As you can see from the last few posts, we are incredibly proud of the evolution of our ECM capabilities in SharePoint 2010 and in April, we are heading to the AIIM Expo in Philadelphia to give attendees the chance to try out SharePoint 2010 and hear directly from the people who built the product.  Starting on April 20th, we’ll open the doors on the SharePoint Experience Lab where you can learn about Office and SharePoint 2010, assisted by the ECM team from Redmond and some of our top field specialists.  The SharePoint Experience Lab will be in the Expo Hall where we will be joined by a number of our leading partners and best of all, if you register before the event, entry to the Expo Hall is ABSOLUTELY FREE!  That’s right, register now and you will get access to a wide range of SharePoint labs, supported by the team from Redmond.

In addition to the SharePoint Experience Lab, we are proud to support the SharePoint 2010 Summit @ AIIM Expo.  The SharePoint 2010 Summit @ AIIM Expo consists of almost 30 sessions delivered by the SharePoint ECM Team, customers and leading industry analysts.  Entry to the SharePoint 2010 Summit @ AIIM Expo is included with a conference pass that you can pick up for just $599 (UPDATE – Advanced registration has been extended.  Enter code A525G to receive a $50 discount).  Not a bad price to ask all the questions you ever wanted answered about SharePoint and get the inside scoop from senior product and program managers as well as Eric Swift, the General Manager of the SharePoint Marketing Group.
