Don't let these Secrets for Microsoft Convergence 2011 be kept from you

Microsoft's Annual customer conference, Convergence, being held April 10th-13th 2011 in Atlanta, GA is at the same location as it was last year. Therefore, last year's attendees have an upper-hand on some of the insights to getting around the convention center, selecting the best restaurants, and booking the most convenient hotels. So, we'd like to share some of these "secrets" (and a few others) with new attendees who perhaps are prospects of one of Microsoft's Dynamics products - or customers who are deciding to go to this significant event for the first time!

Additional Convergence Tips are mentioned within Collins Computing's Dynamics Community blog entry, but here are some of our favorites:
  • Ask the Convention Center guides where the 'secret' tunnel is that takes you from the Community and Learning Center to the Expo and eating halls. This tunnel will save you hundreds of steps, which become important after four days of attending all the exciting sessions you don't want to miss.
  • Join the Facebook "Microsoft Dynamics Community" to keep up with key Convergence and product announcements, updates, and 'tips'.
  • While at Convergence, send Tweets from MSDYNCOMM concerning #CONV11 to your PDA to be alerted to event updates while on-site!
  • Watch the display consoles at the Convention Center for sessions added due to higher attendance earlier in the week.
  • Try real "Southern Cooking" restaurants like South City Kitchen or Pitty Pat's Porch and experience Southern Fried Chicken, Grits, Fried Green Tomatoes and more!
Any questions, please contact our Collins Computing Convergence Ambassadors.
