I’m attending the Inforum 2007 conference in The Sands Expo Centre, Las Vegas this week. The most striking aspect when I arrived last night for the registration reception was the sheer scale of the event. The Expo Centre itself is colossal in scale and Infor have pretty much taken all of it. The main conference room is about the size of 2 football fields (perhaps 3) and there are over 6, 000 attendees.
It’s very much what you would expect of an American run conference. Lots of glitz, loud rock music and very enthusiastic employees. Of course the scope of the event is more than just SunSystems but it does reinforce that the old Systems Union company is now part of a very substantial organisation.
