Awesome opportunity to headline the 2012 Greater Midwest System Center Rally in May

If you are in the St. Louis area on Friday, May 18th, 2012, or want to be, I have an excellent event for you to attend.  I was just made aware of this event, through an email from the sponsors, but this is the 2nd annual System Center Rally for the greater Midwest.  This is touted as a”mini MMS” and includes a lot of the same things you would expect at MMS, such as an event bag for attendees, breakout rooms and sessions, a vendor area, and even a keynote.

What you might find extremely interesting is that yours truly will be headlining the event as the keynote speaker.  I’ll be flying in on May 17th, going through a dry run and socializing a bit, and then kicking off the event on Friday morning.

This is a free event, thanks to the sponsors.  If you’re from out of town, you’d only need to cover travel and lodging.

Check out the web site for details.  There’s several key areas of interest:

  1. Hmmm, 10 hour drive, that might be doable.

    For those unfamiliar with the area, check out the food on ‘The Hill’ especially if you’re in to authentic Italian.

    Union Station is the touristy spot, with a hotel, Hard Rock cafe, and the usual tourist fair. It’ll be closer to the ‘university’ that they mention on their site that’s having a graduation, so that might be tough to stay there.

    Downtown St. Louis is an enjoyable area in the evening, usually quite a bit going on.

    Fun city to visit!
