Even though I knew before-hand this year’s HostingCon would bring a record crowd, I really underestimated how many people are actually here. It didn’t hit me until this afternoon’s HostingCon opening reception when I made my way upstairs and stepped out of the elevator. Glancing quickly down the corridor, I saw a few people hanging out. I thought to myself, “Is this all?” I quickly made my way through the small crowd and rounded the first corner to find the largest social gathering I have ever seen at HostingCon. I’m glad to see so many new faces this year and of course the same old ones from years past.
Another great thing about this year’s event are the parties! So many companies are holding functions this year that it is hard to decide which one to attend. I’m going to try to hit as many as possible, but for those who need a schedule, I’ve provided you with one below. Just a heads up, some parties do require pre-registration to attend and if any new parties pop up, I’ll try to post the info as quickly as possible.
