On the road again and again and again

So the conference season will have officially kicked off for '09 as of next week. First up is ASTD Techknowledge in Las Vegas, then Training '09 in Atlanta in February. After a quick breath, we'll be all over the eLearning Guild's Annual Gathering in Orlando and Defense GameTech User's Conference '09 the same week, also in Orlando. The end of March I'll be heading out to GDC in San Fran, then skipping down to DC in April for 3D TLC, the enterprise spinoff of the Association of Virtual Worlds conferences. In May, we're still considering SPBT in Chicago, immediately followed by Corporate Learning Exchange also in Chicago.

I'm tired just thinking about it. 

So why do all these conferences? We're still new, so its helpful to get some exposure. Obviously we're hoping all this activity leads to sales. But I do think that soon, the only conferences we'll really be interested in attending are the ones that we're speaking at. And maybe, MAYBE the occasional conference to just keep up with trends, like GDC. 

And maybe I'll give the virtual conferences a try. After all, its good to practice what you preach.
