Big News coming at Innovate 2008...
It is a bit early to confirm yet, but we are expecting some big news to be announced at this year's Innovate 2008 conference. The conference will be held in Minneapolis on July 11-12, a much cooler location in July than Tampa -- host of the first Innovate conference in 2007. This year's program has a great lineup of sessions. This year's focus is more on retail technologies, but there will be some sessions on digital content as well. Last year's sessions by Ray Kurzweil and Jim Carroll were fantastic, and will be hard to beat, but I think we have some great speakers lined up again this year. We also added more networking opportunities and changed the workshop format -- all in response to feedback from last year. In the next couple weeks I will post some more detailed information about some of the sessions expected at the conference. It is shaping up to be a great event and the expected news release will make for another good reason to attend.
