ICON UK - an update (it's going well!)

Well, it's been just under 2 weeks since we announced ICON UK. I'll admit - there was some in-trepidation here as we launched it. LUGs have been around a long time, would our new name scare people off?

Well, it seems not! In the last two weeks we've already had nearly 80 attendees sign up and 6 sponsors (with more waiting in the wings to be added to the site). It seems that our vision of an all inclusive IBM user group event has been well received. Either that, or Brighton was a good choice of city!

In fact, I think that this years' signup rate is rivalling some of our best attended conferences yet. Which prompts me to ask - have you registered? Have you sponsored? I suspect that we will 'sell out' this year - so if you'd like to take part in the largest UK IBM user group event, then make sure you get yourself registered sooner rather than later! And if your company has s product or service in the IBM sector and you want to market it direct to your customers, then get in touch about sponsorship.

Of course, with ICON UK setup and ready to go, we also have a date and venue for No Fix. There's still alot left to do there - but once I get some free time (or someone volunteers...) we'll get that website up too. I have been somewhat distracted lately ;-)
