This is a rough edit version – for the final version please go to my active blog:

#SPSSD SharePoint Saturday San Diego 2014

The #SPSSD 2014 event is shaping up to be something special, from start to finish and everything in between.

Why is this so special?

Well, let’s look at some of the stats to get the story started.

· We have over 127 different companies represented in attendee registrations.

· We have roughly 300 people registered to attend.

· We have 14 fabulous sponsors who are making the event possible – and Free to attendees!

· We have @ 23 speakers volunteering their time and weekend to present at the event.

· Among those speakers are SharePoint MVP’s, widely recognized authors and trainers as well as coveted expert speakers – all nationally or internationally known.

· Additionally, we have many great speakers who may not be as well-known but are full of experience and are experts in their own right.

· We have 6 tracks and nearly 30 sessions covering topics for Business, End User, IT Pro, Developer, Office 365 and Sponsor Solutions – the day is jam packed with SharePoint gems.

· UCSD Extension is our venue – and it is perfect for a SharePoint Saturday, with fully equipped professional classrooms and facilities that are comfortable, we couldn’t be more lucky.

Now let’s add the pre and post events to the mix. Speakers will be treated to a beach party luau complete with ukulele serenades and hula dancers around a beach bon-fire. Attendees will be treated to lunch during the event and have the opportunity to mingle with the speakers, sponsors and each other at the SharePINT post-event gathering. Saturday wraps up San Diego Beer Week, and so it is fitting for us to host the SharePINT gathering at the La Jolla Brewing Company (LBC).

Due to our sponsors’ willingness to make this an awesome event, and K2 for providing extra funding to help host the SharePINT, we will have the Tasting Room at LBC reserved for our private party. How much better can it get – SharePINT, Beer Week, and a private room at a brewing company? How about a free drink or two! LHC offers a full bar, appetizers and a great dinner menu that should accommodate everyone’s tastes. What a great way to wrap up a full day of SharePoint sessions.

For the “cherry on top”, we also have some great prizes for the raffle….so I encourage you to stay for the day, pick up a prize during the raffle and then join us at the SharePINT. The whole package is what makes this a special event.
