April 26 2010

If you're looking for Dynamics-related economic indicators, Convergence 2010 suggests the economy is in an upward trend.

With 8,500 attendees, Convergence 2010 in Atlanta beat initial projections of 7,500 attendees, says Craig Dewar, director of community marketing, Microsoft Business Solutions. And this year's attendance handily beat last year's recession-inhibited mark of 6,500 at the show in New Orleans; its 200-plus exhibitors is also well in excess of the number last year, he adds.
