On Monday and Tuesday next week (2-3 September) some of the Crossware team will be at ICON UK in Brighton! Crossware Mail Signature is sponsoring the event at the Brighton Grand Hotel, but this could be the last one!
The largest IBM community gathering in the UK is free to attend, all you need to do is register on the website.
Previously known as UKLUG, this years event will host up to 300 IBM professionals and a list of great speakers from around the globe. But sadly, this could be the last event of it’s kind within the UK, following a confession from the organiser Warren Elsmore on his blog. He describes the difficult situation that the event puts him in financially every year, admitting that he can no-longer do it. The funding from IBM UK especially and other sponsors has decreased over the past few years forcing Warren to ‘pull the pin’.
“Will there be any more UK IBM/Lotus events? I don’t know. If a company is willing to underwrite them, I’d love to deliver them for you – but I have my sincere doubts that will happen”.
A sad time for IBM professionals in the UK and worldwide, lets make ICON UK 2013 the best yet! If you are attending the event, pop over to our booth to meet Rob, our new EMEA Sales Manager based in London as well as Per and Gitte from the New Zealand office. As always we have an awesome prize to give away – soon to be announced on our Facebook page!
