The BD Event
Greg Duplessie is driving an interesting and valuable event called the Business Development Networking Event. I am definintely attending (that may actually turn people away from coming) and there are several other industry folks that I know will be there. This is the first event of its kind focused on the storage and data management industry. Here is the summary: "Our mission is to create a compelling and inexpensive business development and networking event for industry insiders – one that focuses on networking and building relationships and that does not require exhibiting or catering to end-users. The networking event will provide educational speaking topics, as well as significant time available for your own meetings as you see fit." The idea of the event came from an astute observation by Greg that a large number of vendors, analysts and press folk attend different storage trade shows to all talk to each other. However, the pricing for these shows is expensive. Therefore - why not just create an event that focuses on business development that is cost effective? There are a number of major vendors going to this event. Go to the link above for more details about it. I want this event to work - because it makes a ton of sense. It is taking place June 8-10th at the Hilton in the Boston Financial District.
