Announcing ICON UK 2013 - the new name for UKLUG

Well, we said we'd be back - didn't we?

I'm very happy to announce today that the conference formally known as UKLUG will be back in 2013. We are going to be at the;

Brighton Grand Hotel
2nd - 3rd September 2013

But we also have much more than that to tell you. There was a lot of talk at the end of last year as it was announced that 'Lotusphere' was to be renamed as 'Connect' - but with the same great content, speakers and community. In the end of course, it all worked out very well. The expanded event let the traditional 'Lotus' professionals work with all the various IBM software products to create some amazing solutions. This mirrors exactly what we're seeing in the real world - IBM solutions being delivered from multiple stacks.

So, the UKLUG team decided this year that we needed to do the same. Whilst we'll also still have the best 'Lotus' speakers and consultants on hand - we'll also have the best 'IBM" speakers and consultants on hand (hint: they're the same people!). We'll again bring together all of the industry leading solution providers to help you create or manage your IBM solution.

But, in 2013, we'll have a little more. We are opening up the event to include everyone working with the IBM stack. Whether your background is Lotus, Websphere, Tivoli, DB2, Rational or XYZ - we'd like to invite you to ICON UK 2013.

I realise that change is sometimes a little scary, but don't worry. All the usual suspects will be there and we're all looking forward to meeting you in Brighton this September. All you need to do now is register!

We have an all-new registration system thanks to LDC, so you can login with your existing account and register for the event - or create a new account. Once logged in, you can submit abstracts to speak and participate in our forums.
