Held from Oct. 20-22, 2010, the blow-out SPTechCon Boston (www.SPTechCon.com) smashed attendance records with 1,174 total registrants. Conference registration had to be cut off fully five weeks before SPTechCon. The event packed the Hyatt Regency Cambridge hotel — whose guest rooms had been sold out for two months.
SPTechCon Boston also set records in its expo hall, with 46 exhibiting companies and sponsors including Microsoft, AvePoint, Quest, FPWeb, Mainsoft, EPC Group, CommVault, ESRI and Hewlett-Packard. Exhibit space had completely sold out 10 weeks before the event.
Highlights of SPTechCon Boston included a standing-room-only keynote by Steve Fox, Microsoft’s Senior Evangelism Manager for the Developer and Platform Group. Noted author and speaker Bill English, founder of Mindsharp, delivered a keynote address that led to a spontaneous follow-up class attended by 50 people.
There were numerous products and services announced at SPTechCon Boston, including SPTechWeb: Your SharePoint Technology Resource (www.SPTechWeb.com), the leading Web portal for SharePoint news, analysis, community, products, service and resources.
Ted Bahr, president of BZ Media, said, “SPTechCon Boston was an incredibly exciting conference for attendees, speakers, sponsors and exhibitors. Completely sold out, filling every nook and cranny of the Hyatt Regency Cambridge, the enthusiasm was tremendous. The excitement that the SharePoint community and industry have for SPTechCon has overwhelmed the Hyatt Cambridge and we’re looking forward to moving to much larger quarters next time we’re in Boston!”
