The team for Social Connections are working hard to finalise the details for our 14th event about IBM Connections in Berlin. We are very happy that we have an awesome venue, several amazing sponsors, fantastic customers who will speak and many great attendees already signed up.
One thing have happened though we didn’t count on. IBM, our Platinum sponsor, has decided to withdraw their sponsorship for Social Connections 14. The reason they gave us is that they have put all their resources into the launch of Domino v10.
This is a massive financial and emotional blow for us as an IBM Connections User Group, as we bring customers and business partners (and IBM) together so people can meet and learn from each other.
It is also an emotional blow for us volunteers in the team, we who work many and countless hours on our free time to organise this conference, promoting IBM Connections and maintain this amazing community of customers and business partners.
We have had a team meeting and decided that there is only one thing we can do, and want to do.
If you know us, you already know the answer…..
We will not stop by this, we will make it work and the event, October 16-17 in Berlin will take place. Because that is what we do!
The agenda stays as published and will not change. We have been assured by both Offering Management and the IBM Europe team that we have their full logistic support.
It will all of course take some work, some changes and some careful planning!
But we are certain, that we will deliver to you an amazing, vibrant event, all about the digital workplace. We will continue bringing people together who believe in collaboration software.
So, buckle up people, the show will go on!
See you in Berlin for Social Connections 14, October 16-17, 2018.
