Please welcome a new addition to the Inside BlackBerry Blog, Sarah Burt! Sarah works on the Corporate Marketing team at Research In Motion® (RIM) and will be providing updates on our new conference, BlackBerry World, going forward. Post a comment and say hi! Ed.
If you’re an IT administrator, developer, or BlackBerry® partner, then you’ve probably attended WES at some point in the past 9 years. WES has been our flagship BlackBerry conference held in Orlando, Florida each spring. We have attracted over 5000 customers and partners annually to come network and get an in-depth view of all things BlackBerry.
Now there’s a new conference taking its place – BlackBerry World. The BlackBerry World conference is the best place to get all the necessary news and information related to BlackBerry, with a ton of hands-on and interactive content. This is truly the place to come and get an in-depth, 360-degree view of all things BlackBerry. You’ll still get all the WES tracks and sessions you’re used to, and we’re also adding tracks exclusively for BlackBerry Channel Partners. We’ll have over 100 sessions on topics ranging from supporting individual-liable smartphones in your environment to getting up to speed on the BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet. Over 150 sponsors will take part in the Solutions Showcase, where you’ll find apps that make your job easier and apps that make waiting in line easier. And of course, we’ll continue to present insightful keynote speakers and the very latest in BlackBerry announcements.
Registration opens in January, but you can find out more about the BlackBerry World conference now by checking out www.blackberryworld.com. Continue to watch the Inside BlackBerry Blog for more conference posts from me in 2011 – I’ll keep you up to date on the latest conference details. We’re excited for the next phase!
