Convergence 2011 to Welcome Large Crowds with More User-Driven Content
Convergence 2011 in Atlanta, set for April 10 to 13, is set to be as big as or bigger than the 2010 event. With 8,500 attendees last year, the Convergence event team is estimating at least the same attendance this year.
But Convergence event manager Heather Kulla says the number could go higher - possibly to 9,500. Since they exceeded last year's estimate of 7,500, Kulla is not ruling out a larger-than-expected showing.
Attendees can also expect a full exhibit hall. Sponsorships are sold out, with a waiting list. While the 2010 event also sold out for sponsors, there was no waiting list to speak of. Organizers will be making an extra effort to help attendees sort through the huge exhibit hall with better classification of exhibitors by Dynamics products, and industry needs.
