We are pleased to announce that the 2012 Sawtooth Software Conference will be held March 21-23, 2012, at Disney’s Boardwalk Inn in Orlando, Florida. This conference is held only once every 18 months. Given this location and the success of our last conference, we expect between 225 to 250 people for the 2012 conference.
Orlando International Airport is convenient to most major airports, including from Europe. Based on past experience when we hold this event on the East Coast, we expect many of our European colleagues to join us.
Disney’s Boardwalk Inn has the advantage of being just 20 minutes from the airport (with free airport shuttle service if arranged in advance with the hotel). The hotel has a premier location just a few minutes walk from Epcot theme park, and within easy boat/bus transportation of the other Walt Disney World theme parks.
The registration fee will be $1,050 for the 2.5-day conference, plus $250 per optional tutorial (attendees may sign up for up to two optional tutorials). We have secured a promotional room rate of $205 with Disney’s Boardwalk Inn.
Optional workshops and tutorials will be March 19-20, and the main conference sessions will run from March 21-23, 2012. So, mark your calendars and put it into your 2012 budget! A call for papers will be issued in July.
