Conferences, Conferences, and More Conferences

I'm going to have a very hectic schedule starting later this month. I'm going to three conferences in four weeks (speaking at two of them), then another two in two weeks in May. Here's the schedule:

OzFox 2007: Feb 20 - 28 (the conference isn't that long but I'm taking a few days for sightseeing). I'm doing three presentations at this conference (see the conference Web site for details).

Home for 2 days (just enough time for jet lag to really set in!)

Synergy 2007: Mar 3 - 6. This conference is for AccountMate resellers. I'm doing a presentation on Stonefield Query for AccountMate plus Jeff Zinnert and I have a booth there.

Home for 5 days

MVP Summit: Mar 12 - 15. Fortunately, no presentation, but it'll be great meeting with the VFP team again.

Home for 6 weeks or so (whew!)

Advisor DevCon on Microsoft Visual FoxPro: May 5 - 11. Jeff and I will have a booth plus I'm doing four sessions:
  • Developing Visual FoxPro Applications for Windows Vista
  • Best Practices for Vertical Application Development
  • Installing Visual FoxPro Applications Using InnoSetup
  • Integrate RSS and Visual FoxPro
Home for 2 days

Sage Insights: May 14 - 17 (although I'll likely stretch this because it's in Orlando and we're planning a family vacation around the conference). It's the annual conference for resellers of Sage Software. We'll have a 10 x 20 booth with my business partner Mickey Kupchyk and Stonefield Query National Account Managers Jeff Zinnert and Chris Hodgins, showing the following products:
  • Stonefield Query for SalesLogix
  • Stonefield Query for ACT!
  • Stonefield Query for Timberline (a new product we'll be launching at the conference)
  • Stonefield Query for Simply Accounting
  • ACCPAC Query for Sage Accpac ERP
  • ACCPAC Query for Sage Pro ERP
  • ACCPAC Query for Sage BusinessVision (another new product)
  • Stonefield Query SDK for resellers wanting to customize one of the other products
Having eight products to show will keep us hopping. Plus, I'm doing a presentation called "ACCPAC Query: Empowering Partners to Deliver a Customized Reporting Solution," which shows Sage business partners how they can use the SDK to customize ACCPAC Query (also applicable to Stonefield Query) for their customers.

Wow! Five conferences in a span of about three months. I'll have a ton of air miles before summer even starts.
