My First Word On #HRTechConf 2011 — And Your Best Discount Offer

What Goes In Vegas Doesn't Stay There!

I’m writing this as Fort Myers is experiencing a relatively mild summer (compared to the rest of the country’s astonishing heat) while getting enough rain to float all boats.  But no lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer here.  A quick look at my calendar and todo list are enough to frighten anyone, but that’s what comes of trying to pack two years of living — professionally and personally — into every calendar year.  And 2011 has been a doozy.

Having missed last year’s HR Technology Conference when my very close friend lost her only son the weekend before the conference, I set about preparing for the 2011 conference last October.  But I never expected this October to come so quickly.  Now here we are, and with just a couple more months to prepare, I’ve been booking vendor meetings, selecting sessions to attend, preparing for the Great Debate with Jason Averbook (you do know that he outweighs me mightily!), finalizing travel plans, organizing the Hussies event, and so much more, all while trying to keep up with my day job and a ton more travel before we land in Vegas. 

Since I know that all of you are HR Technology Conference enthusiasts,  there’s no need for me to do a laundry list of all the reasons why everyone who is anyone in our industry will be there with flags flying.  But to make it a little easier for any of you who haven’t yet registered and made your travel plans, have I got a deal for you.  Just go to the conference Web site noted above, click on register, enter the case sensitive SPK11 in the Promo Code field, and you’ll save $550.00 courtesy of InFullBloom.  With the money you’ve just saved, you should have no problem paying for a rock bottom airfare with a little left over to squander on the delights of sin city — or not.

Can You Tell Who's Who?

There’s no time to lose on this because the 2011 conference is going to be a block buster.  The Kutik is beside himself with glee over the early registration numbers, the show floor will be bursting at the seams in spite of vendor consolidation (did you know that new HR tech companies are hatching as quickly or more so than older ones are disappearing?), and I’m sure that hotel rooms (at least the discounted ones) will be filled to overflowing.  In addition to the Great Debate with Jason, I’ll be hosting an “Expert Discussion Session” (always fun because it’s all about your questions — that’s the entire agenda), and The Wallace will be doing the swag patrol looking for more stuffed toys and stress reducers. 

So please do join me and everyone else in Las Vegas.  Tucked between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, it’s an absolute MUST.  Use the discount code yourself and share it with your colleagues, but use it quickly because it expires before my birthday.
