Name change: Capitalware’s MQ Technical Conference???

At MQTC v2.0.1.4, several people mentioned that initially, they thought “Capitalware’s MQ Technical Conference” was ONLY a conference on Capitalware’s products. I was surprised by these comments and made me wonder how many people ‘out there’ also think MQTC is only on Capitalware’s products.

So, I’m thinking of changing the conference name to:

– MQ Technical Conference presented by Capitalware
– MQ Technical Conference hosted by Capitalware
– MQ Technical Conference managed by Capitalware
– MQ Technical Conference brought to you by Capitalware

If the name “Capitalware’s MQ Technical Conference” might cause confusion then I’m open to suggestions. What do people think?

Summary of MQ Technical Conference v2.0.1.4

Summary of MQ Technical Conference v2.0.1.4

I would like to thank the attendees, speakers and sponsors for participating in the 2nd annual MQ Technical Conference. Kalahari catering had a few hiccups but outside of that, I think everything went reasonably well.

I did my best to make sure that each breakfast and lunch had something different from the day before and I scheduled an afternoon treat as a pick-me-up for the rest of the afternoon. :)

Next year’s conference, MQTC v2.0.1.5 will be held on September 28 to 30th, 2015 at Kalahari Resorts.

If Sandusky, Ohio is not your preferred location for Capitalware’s MQ Technical Conference, where would you like it to be located? You can post it here or email me.
