WORKTECH’12 West Coast (15 Oct) London (14/15 Nov) Netherlands (28 Nov)

by Paul Carder on October 10, 2012

We always write about CoreNet Global Summits – in fact, you’ll see more from #CNGorlando from Jim Ware this week, as he is just on his way home to the ‘other’ sunshine state of California. Why? Well, I guess we are very familiar with CoreNet Summits – you may be too? I have been to a dozen or more, around the world, and I always learn something; but we also like the people, and the great network. CoreNet have also been kind enough to invite us to all their Summits also, which clearly helps… 🙂

What about the ‘competition’ though? WORKTECH by Unwired Ltd, is certainly in that ‘box’. And it is now well established around the world, much like CoreNet Summits. Should you go to one, or the other, or both? Our role is not to advise on that, but to tell you what we have seen, heard, and what we might expect from future events.

Jim Ware was at WORKTECH’11 West Coast, and this was his report. It was the first event hosted by Unwired in Silicon Valley. Jim knows the region well, as a resident of Berkeley, CA, and said this:

“….it was a good day, time and money well spent. Great lineup of speakers, intriguing stories, and excellent opportunities for networking. I don’t know the numbers, but I’d guess there were about 150 people in attendance, from all over the U.S. and some further afield” (there is far more on the link above)

WORKTECH’12 is in San Francisco this year, on 15th October. It is SOLD OUT, so if you were hoping to attend, sorry! Watch for next year, and book early! Our Jim Ware will be attending, so subscribe to this blog to make sure that you do not miss his overview.

There IS still time to book here for your place at WORKTECH’12 London, on 14/15 November, at the British Library. Or simply contact Caroline Bell for more information by emailing caroline.bell@unwired.eu.com or calling
