ICON US (formerly IamLUG) official announcement for 2014

Hello to everyone that has been waiting patiently for official word from ICON US headquarters (formerly IamLUG).  Due to limited scheduling time available and some other behind the scenes stuff, we have decided as a board to take a year off. Last year was an amazing success with over 75% new attendees coming to IamLUG for the first time. We want the next event to be just as informational and fun.  Look for updates to start in 4th quarter of 2014 as we will ramp up early.

Sponsors, we sold out of space for 2013. If you want to be included for the next event, please get your guaranteed slot held early.  We had turn a of couple sponsors away last year.

You can keep up with previous years keynote sessions below and if you attended IamLUG then you have access to all the video archives for 2013 and 2011.

IamLUG thanks you for the blog, email and Twitter feedback

The IamLUG 2013 staff wants to thank everyone that helped make it a success.  It is showing through the emails, tweets and other feedback we have been getting.  We wanted to highlight a few as we ran across them and thank everyone for coming to the best LUG yet.

NotesCode email:
Congratulations to the organizers of the IamLUG event held last week! The event was well organized with great food, excellent sessions (with 100% positive feedback for all sessions), interesting vendors and of course amazing attendees!

Just a quick shout out to say that IamLUG 2013 in St. Louis was a great conference.  This was my second time going.  Chris Miller and his team do an amazing job organizing this event!    All the speakers are top-notch technical people typically found at Lotusphere/IBM Connect.   Each day at lunch, I'd plop myself in any open seat at a table, and then  look around see the faces of several writers of blogs that I read regularly.    Where else does that happen?

@wesmorgan1: By the way, a HUGE thanks to the fine folks at #IamLUG - staff, attendees and sponsors alike! What a great conference..

Kathy Brown on RunningNotes
I have been lucky enough to attend all four IamLUGs and I have to say this was best one yet.  The combination of attendees, speakers, sessions, sponsors, food, weather (so much better than August!) was just perfect.
The attendees – I really felt like every attendee was happy to be there.  Everyone seemed eager to learn and meet new people.

The IamLUG 2013 keynote replay is now online

We are happy to provide the IamLUG 2013 keynote with guest IBM speaker Louis Richardson and co-founder Kirk Bowman of Zipline now available on YouTube.  Louis is an excellent storyteller and social whisperer that draws you in covering creative ideas. Kirk follows with making good social choices. This is an excellent keynote for technical and managers alike.
