Actually, I really do enjoy the learning, social and speaking aspects of attending events, but I hate the travel and business disruption that the spring conference season causes. In the next two months, I'll be headed to the following events: SAP Sapphire (Atlanta), Iasta reSource (Indy), Corporate United's Synergy (Chicago), D/C Expo (Chicago), Ariba LIVE (Boca), and ISM (Vegas). If you're going to make it to any of these shows, let me know. I'm speaking at some and blogging from others. But I hope to keep my schedule as open as possible at each to meet with Spend Matters readers that want to connect in person. As an aside, I've started a new advertising section on Spend Matters for events (look a few sections down on the right side of the page and you'll see it). If anyone is interested in listing your event, drop me a line at jbusch (@) spendmatters (dot) com and I'll send you the details.
