I am hosting a pre-Tech Ed party on Saturday, June 4th. That is the day before the pre-con. The Peabody hotel is just across the street from the conference center, and that is where we will meet. Then, later on that evening, we’ll have a large geek dinner at the restaurant in the Peabody lobby (I’m assuming everyone won’t have cars to enable driving a few miles).
Party with Palermo is the official title (from Darrell Norton).
Here is the itinerary:
4PM – Arrival begins. meet and greet. Discuss conference sessions, etc. Networking.
6PM – Geek Dinner. I have reserved for 20, so I will need actual names for people to expect.
7:30PM – Drinks and conversation at the hotel bar.
The following is important. Use the contact form on my blog to let me know you are coming. I initially reserved 20, but when I get more (there may be 100 or more), I’ll need to adjust the reservation. It’s very important that everyone planning on attending sends me an email through my blog so that I have you on the list for dinner. I’ll also be able to send out targeted last-minute updates.
Please spread the word. I’d appreciate linkbacks if you have a blog as well as email referrals to colleagues who will be at Tech Ed.
From this point on, I’ll prefer to send updates directly via email, so be sure you send me your contact information so I can keep you in the loop.
