Many of you are heard over the last day that the Nuxeo management team has changed the date of our first annual User Conference - Nuxeo World.
Not an easy decision - we had a solid response to our Early Bird Discount sign up period, and have been impressed with the range of topics submitted for the breakout sessions - representing 3 continents and several countries!
But we needed to listen to a large segment of our customers and partners who found themselves in a bit of a time and budget crunch in mid-March. We're anticipating a very strong representation from customers in our French market - and became concerned that we presented a conflict with Salon Documation also in Paris. And some of our North American partners are already committed to spring events such as OSBC and AIIM.
So we have pushed the Nuxeo World Event - the premier gathering of open source ECM experts - to November. Same Paris location, at Echangeur, a technology innovation centre in the heart of the historic Le Marais district. We'll be extending the Early Bird registration rate until July 2010, and will keep the Call for Papers open until March 1. So if the original date held you back from signing up or submitting a session abstract, now's your chance to participate.
All of the current registrants have been personally contacted, and we're really pleased that nearly everyone is able to attend on the new dates. For those very few who cannot attend in November, we're working to ensure your registration investment is appropriately credited.
So thanks to everyone for your patience. We at Nuxeo are confident that this decision will result in a bigger, better, more vibrant event that will give high value for your conference fee.
Hmmm.. there was one more thing. What was I forgetting? Oh yes. Our closing reception on Thursday November 18 will celebrate one of my personal long running traditions.... Any guesses what that might be?
If any further questions about our date change, I'm very happy to address them. Please reach me via email - cmckinnon @ nuxeo.com
