SMBTN Postpones SMB Summit™ 2009 April 11, 2009

Posted by Jim Locke in SMB Summit.

sm_jwlIt is with deep regret that I must announce that SMB Technology Network has decided to postpone its 5th Annual SMB Summit conference, due to circumstances beyond our control, including the current economic situation. The event, scheduled to be held May 14-17, 2009, at the Omni Mandalay Hotel in Irving, Texas, featured a host of excellent speakers and industry experts, leading SMB vendors, as well as, some fantastic pre-day events and certification training programs. However, circumstances left us unable to deliver the same high quality event that the community has come to expect from us during the past four years.

With this in mind, the conference committee voted unanimously Friday night to postpone the event in order to permit attendees and contributors adequate time to cancel hotel and travel arrangements. The conference committee is evaluating new dates for SMB Summit and hopes to make this information available soon. In the meantime, we will be contacting all conference registrants to begin the process of issuing refunds. We encourage any registrants with specific questions to contact SMBTN Member Services at (888) GO-SMBTN or via e-mail at MemberServices@SMBTN.org.

In closing, we wish to give special thanks to those companies that registered for the event and apologize for any inconvenience that this postponement might cause them. We would also like to extend our appreciation to the many people who invested their time and effort on SMB Summit 2009, including our attendees, speakers, community members, vendors, sponsors, and organizers. We look forward to announcing a new date for SMB Summit™ in the near future.

Best Regards,
Jim Locke, President
SMB Technology Network™

Smart move when the signs point to proactively making the most positive decision possible at the time with all available information.
