ImplementationFest 2011 is being held 2-4 August in Orlando, Florida at the Rosen Centre Hotel. After today, the regular registration fees for this event will no longer be available, so if you have not yet registered, do it now! (You will be able to register after July 15 and on site in Orlando, but will pay late registration rates.)
Also, be sure to book your hotel room at the Rosen Centre Hotel by Monday, 18 July.
The agenda for our event is still being refined; check back often as we finalize it leading up to the event.
