We are pleased to announce that the 2010 Sawtooth Software Conference will be held October 4-8, 2010, at the Newport Beach Marriott, in Newport Beach, California. This conference is held only once every 18 months. Given this location and the success of our last conference, we expect 200+ people for the 2010 conference.
We have chosen the Newport Beach Marriott because of its excellent location just 5 minutes away from Orange County Airport (SNA), and 45 minutes from Los Angeles International (LAX), and also because of its excellent value. Our contract with the hotel will allow us to keep the conference registration fees at the low rates we had in 2009 ($900 registration for the 2.5-day conference, plus $225 per optional tutorial). Also, your costs should be lower than 2009 since the room rates are $179, and due to the proximity to airports.
The Newport Beach Marriott just won the Marriott food and catering competition, so you can expect that you will be treated to the top-notch experience that you are used to at the Sawtooth Software Conference.
Optional workshops and tutorials will be October 4-5, and the main conference sessions will run from October 6-8. So, mark your calendars and put it into your 2010 budget. A call for papers will be issued in January.
