As soon as we announced our next event in Toronto, Canada, we also opened the call for abstract plus early bird registration and announced the sponsorship packages for Social Connections 10. Just within few hours abstracts, registrations and sponsorship inquiries started to come. We are thrilled by the feedback from the community and looking forward to meet you all in Toronto!

Today we are happy to announce the unofficial “winners” in all the categories above.

First of all, we are proud to announce our first sponsor, which is Harbour Light Software Development Ltd. from Canada! They picked a gold package and thus moved our event budget far away from ground zero. You can learn more about Harbour Light here and we encourage you to watch their company session at the conference and meet them at their pedestal in sponsors showcase.

The first abstract was submitted by Robert Farstad from Norway. It is a case study on a custom single-sign-on scenario . Congrats to Robert and we hope that his abstract will be selected.

Last but not least, our first registered attendee was Victor Toal from the U.S. Victor is a long term member of the community, an IBM Champion for Collaboration Solutions and recognized expert on IBM Connections. Great to see Victor again.

And what about you? Will you join us in Toronto? There is less than 100 days until Social Connections 10 which is a perfect time to submit an abstract or book one of the sponsors slot.The SOCCNX team is looking forward to hear back from you soon.
