Inaugural year, 40+ sessions/workshops, 300+ attendees, 10+ Platinum Sponsors/Exhibitors, sold out conference ... are a few phrases to explain the BIWA Summit.
Generally speaking everything went as planned, thanks to all the help and support of various the stakeholders. And please join me in congratulating John Haydu for the "BIWA Key Contributor Award" for the year. John was resposible for most of the registration related activities, and managing the show with around 350 registrants was not a trivial task.
All the stakeholders deserve an applause, be it the conference attendees who enthusiatically attended the event over the two days, the Platinum sponsors who helped to keep the attendee cost down, the speakers who mostly flew in from the different parts of the countries or the BIWA BoD that made it all happen.
Next year for BIWA Summit 2008, we will head to Oracle HQ to Redwood Shores, just South of San Francisco on Dec 2-3, 2008. Meanwhile, watch out for the upload of the presentations from BIWA 2007 soon at the BIWA Site.
