TRUSTED IDENTITY: Faith in a Technology World

IT Pro Conference 2012 will explore not only the new products and technologies we use today, but the vision of how providing IT consulting in the future is moving well beyond product knowledge of functionality. We are all becoming a firewall against faith as the only thing protecting a TRUSTED IDENTITY. Or maybe we are not, maybe the protection is already gone. Maybe we are only responsible to fix what is left.

Our 2-day conference provides a chance to step back from the daily pace and look at what everyone is thinking, but not necessarily saying they are thinking. We put group of people on stage to lead a discussion, and the audience is immediately part of what informs the direction from there. 

The Experience Event - Combine the technology experience with a blend of the New Orleans experience in food, music, and entertainment plus days of outstanding peer discussion. Now you have an Executive Conference affordable for small and medium SMB Partners that can only happen in New Orleans! An extraordinarily valuable and entertaining professional networking event by day, evolves into live music every night, great entertainment and that unbelievable New Orleans food experience!

7-Day Caribbean Cruise Seminar Series

7-Day Caribbean Cruise Seminars Series
New Orleans roundtrip via

Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands
Cozumel, Mexico
June 10 – June 17, 2012
 

Our round trip from New Orleans to Jamaica, Grand Cayman and Cozumel needs no promotion, you probably made up your mind with no guidance.

Of course, some people are stuborn to see the value in spending a week with the people in the SMB industry who can easily justify why a week of discussion, socializing, and networking with people who are at this level get the idea, totally. Not everyone is ready for a week away from work or home, or a week at sea with friends. If your business needs attention daily and you need to be there, you are not ready to take on the Cruise Conference. But if you think you want the next opportunity where this is the learning experience you need, this is why we planned it for you.

 
Experience Our Music & Food
[+]

Some would say this conference is entirely about the food and music, and to that we respond with a smile. This conference is entirely about providing you with a conference experience you will find unforgettable. For that reason, we try to make the events of learning and spending time with your peers about enjoying more than the mechanics. You come to New Orleans, you should expect the food to be a feature, not a break. We bring music and entertainment into the path of the weekend, you can't avoid it.

The IT Pro Conference has been quirkishly described as 'the best party with a conference theme". We don't try to explain that, but we do run a really fine conference, and the music and entertainment is never held back. We know our content remains the main feature, but we give it a good run to stay ahead of the celebration bits. Take a look for yourself, then decide.

Come, enjoy, explore with us.
