Top Echelon Network Conference Logistics for the Rest of the Year

The Top Echelon Kansas City Placement Conference is being held this Friday, March 19th.   It’s the second one-day event that we’ve held so far this year.   The first one was in Tampa, Fla., last month.  We’ve received inquiries from quite a few recruiters wanting to know specifics regarding the four remaining conferences in 2010, for planning purposes more than anything else.   There are some very attractive locations on the schedule, and we understand the need to plan in advance so that you can  ensure your attendance at one of these events.  Believe me—nobody wants you there more than we do.

That being said, I’d like to include as much information as I can in this issue of The Pinnacle regarding the remaining conferences this year, so that those recruiters who are interested in attending can plan in an adequate fashion.  Keep in mind that not all of the information regarding these events is currently available.   We’re still in negotiations with several hotels, especially for those conferences scheduled to be held toward the end of the year.


Reminder: Las Vegas moved to September 24
We’ve mentioned this before, but it bears repeating. We’ve changed the date of the Las Vegas conference.  Originally, it was set for Monday, September 20.   Then we moved it to Friday, September 17.   And then, because we obviously could not make up our minds, we moved it again—this time to Friday, September 24.  Don’t worry . . . this is the last time that we’re switching the date.  You know, unless we find a reason to.   No, forget I said that! I was just kidding.  Or was I? Never mind.



Anyway, on with the show. What follows are the standard logistics for each of the remaining four Top Echelon conferences in 2010, including the location, the dates, the hotel where the event will be held, and the keynote speaker.   Keep in mind that the dates listed indicate the official day of the conference—a Friday—as well as the day before, when the Icebreaker Reception will take place.   In addition, there might also be Big Biller software training during the day on Thursday.   (There will be a Big Biller session in Kansas City, but future training sessions have yet to be scheduled for the remaining conferences.)

Also, remember that we have not signed room block agreements with any of these hotels.  These are simply the hotels in which the conferences will be held.   You are free to stay wherever you would like and to secure whatever room rate you are able to secure.   So, without further adieu, here are the logistics.
