I am in San Diego at Lawson's user conference. This is the first time they have invited bloggers (Michael Krigsman, Frank Scavo and I in person - others like Dennis Howlett virtually). I will have impressions on content over next couple of days, but the logistics, customer and executive access have been very well organized.
No big name bands or entertainers at this conference, but both CEO Harry Debes and SVP Dean Hager have filled in well with props from Hollywood. Harry played game show host and Dean simulated Extreme Makeover of his spartan fish house in deep freeze Minnesota as he presented. While they evoked slum-dog themes, the hospitality at the new Hilton next to the conference center has been anything but. Combined with the usual mid-western friendliness in their executives.
In return us bloggers have been well behaved. No moves yet to get the CEO to yell out 4 letter words.
Not yet anyways:)
Oh, and BTW - I have already recruited 6 more folks here to write in the Technology and my Hobby series. Not bad for a day's work!
