Tech-ed IT Forum: It’s a sell out.

Filed under: Events — jamesone111 @ 1:19 pm

I remember the first time I saw the comedian Eddie Izzard perform live, he walked onto the stage in Oxford, and looked around the audience. There wasn’t a single empty seat. He said “I’ve sold out! People always say ‘Stay true to yourself and never sell out’ but I say NO!!! ”

It’s one of a few comedy lines which comes to me like some kind of Pavlovian reaction, and I had this in my email this morning.

Tech Ed: IT Forum is a complete sell out. In total 4.500 people will attend the conference and the expo hall with sponsors and exhibitors is also sold out. This evening we are closing the public registration.

Wow, sold out six weeks ahead of time. It’s obviously popular this year. I’ll be there, I might do a turn in the ask the experts area. But my main job is to recording for virtual Tech-ed. I’ll post the links for that in due course … but we’ve been interviewing some of the content owners and the folks who put the event infrastructure together. If you’ve booked it looks like it’s going to be great event. If you haven’t booked you’ll have to watch Virtual tech-ed.
