I was surprised that nobody was talking about the Conference in the USA/Canada forum. Now I realize why. I've tried to post there twice and my reply has vanished. (Don't we have a folder symbol for locked threads?)
So, I just wanted to open a discussion. I also wanted to ask when the information for the incentive will be released. The software credit was a big factor in determining my trip last year.

Hi Wendy,

Ah yes the News Forums are more about broadcasting announcements about upcoming GUA events/activities etc - sorry about that...but I am glad you started a thread on the conference :)

We are updating the conference incentive list with our Product Managers right now - expect to see similar breadth of products offered in the Conference credit as last year.

As soon as we have confirmed all the details - we will post the list to the web and I will announce on the forums that it is available.

Best regards,
Lesley

Hi Wendy,

I checked with the hotel and they can extend the rate of 225.00 CAD plus applicable taxes 3 days pre-conference and 3 days post-conference.

Let me know if you need to know anything else:)

Best regards,
Lesley

I just went to register for the conference and the Beginning Rules Based Automation class is closed. Are you going to add another?

Hi Betty,

Good timing for your question - I am just reworking the conference schedule a bit and there may be an opportunity to add another class - I'll check the timing & logistics (and of course the availablility of Alastair) and I'll let you know :)

Best regards,
Lesley

Hi Betty,

I have checked with our instructor and added another basic Prinergy Rules Based Automation session to the GUA program on Friday May 26th from 1:30 - 3:30 pm. There are only 10 seats available in the class though so I would advise booking your spot asap.

Best regards,
Lesley

Lesley -

What does the Spouse package include? Is it just the evening events, or all meals? I don't recall and don't see the answer I'm looking for on the cvent site.

BTW - any indication what the evening events are this year?

Wednesday - Welcome Reception at the Seawall Bar & Grill.
Thursday - Dinner at the Vancouver Aquarium
Friday - BBQ dinner at Playland Amusement Park.

All of the program info is at www.mygua.org

[Hi All,

Thanks Wendy for filling in the details :)

I am available on this forum to answer any questions any of you might have about the GUA Conference. As a reminder - the Early Bird discount is only available to folk who register before this Friday March 31st. If you are even thinking of going - you can register this week and there is no penalty for cancelling if you do so - as long as it is a month out from the conference dates (May 24-27).

This year is our first conference in partnership with Kodak - so it is really important to attend and voice your priorities in terms of the direction of development, service and sales. A lot of Kodak folk will be there to listen to your experience of the integration so far, what is important to you and where you want them to invest in their organization.

Customers have a strong voice in Kodak's Graphic Communications Group - all the decision makers at the Corporate, Business and Regional level will be there to hear what you have to say.

If you've never attended an event before - it is well worth your time - 97% of respondants to the post-confrence survey last year said that they were happy with the conference program. 94% told us that based on the value they received - they planned to return in 2006!

Let me know if you have any questions - I'd be happy to answer them on this forum (or directly if you prefer).

Best regards,
Lesley[/SIZE]
