EntConnect conference coming up in less than six months
The next annual Entrepreneurial Connections (EntConnect) conference is coming up in just under six months, from Thursday, March 26, 2009 through Sunday, March 29, 2009. Traditionally the conference consists primarily of a reunion of former readers of Midnight Engineering magazine and a few newbies who have gotten suckered into trying it out, but each year we try to figure out new ways to attract fresh blood. This usually brings the discussion back to the question of what people feel they get out of the conference and how to increase its value to current attendees as well as potential attendees.
You might want to take a look at the current conference Web page and see if it seems right on target or if you think there is anything missing or in any way "off-key."
One thing we need to do this year is come up with a better solution to the kick-off dinner on Friday night. Traditionally, we had an Italian "feast" at Valente's in Wheat Ridge, CO, but this year there was some snafu in the planning and it did not happen, so we simply ate dinner at a restaurant across the street from the conference hotel. It did work out, but the group was a bit split up. I just found out that Valente's is closing on Columbus Day, Monday, October 13, 2008.
