I am very excited these days as I look around and see all the thought and creativity being put into ensuring that the IBM Information on Demand 2013 conference taking place November 3-7 in Las Vegas turns out to be one of the best conferences ever. I know many of our valued customers are traveling a great distance and investing a great deal of effort to spend some time with us and with their peers. We want to ensure that it becomes the best and most memorable experience for them- an event at which they can get information, education and entertainment.
I know I speak on behalf of all the Business Analytics Accelerated Value Program (AVP) Teams worldwide when I say, “Welcome to IOD 2013 and welcome to this year's AVP Red Carpet Lounge!”
New to the AVP Red Carpet Lounge?
The AVP Red Carpet Lounge, an exclusive oasis at IOD, is a unique mix of networking opportunities, product knowledge expansion and relaxation. A place where you can come to recharge, read all those emails, make calls in a quiet area and rest your feet. Your personal lounge is in the center of all the action in the EXPO area.
I am personally extending an invitation to all of our customers to come join us at the Lounge where you can:
- Discover new solutions: explore some of the latest additions in the Business Analytics space, such as IBM Cognos BI 10.2, Cognos TM1 and others, all of which will help you improve your business performance.
- Learn from the experts: meet exclusively with product managers and discuss your product, upgrade, support and deployment issues over a cup of coffee.
- Network with your Peers: discuss best practices with your fellow AVP customers and learn how proactive advice helped them get quicker returns on their software investment.
The lounge will be stocked with snacks, coffee and drinks throughout the day, so there will never be a dull (or hungry) moment.
Welcome back, longtime clients
Those of you who have been customers for years know the AVP Red Carpet Lounge is yours, so just come in, relax and make yourselves at home!
I will be in the Lounge during certain periods of the day and would love to meet you in person to extend my compliments on your continued support of the AVP Program.
Please keep your eyes on this blog space for more information on exciting developments and activities. I hope to see you in Las Vegas at Information On Demand 2013.
