Title: SMB Nation 2004 Technology Conference to feature Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2003 in Seattle in September!

The world’s only conference dedicated to small and medium business (SMB) technology matters and Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2003 (SBS) will be held in Seattle from September 10-13, 2004. Hosted by international best selling SBS author Harry Brelsford, SMB Nation is focused on equipping technology consultants, channel partners, resellers, VARs\VAPs with greater technical knowledge and better business practices. Attendees will most assuredly return from the well-received conference, now in its second year, with more SMB and SBS-related knowledge as well as knowing many of the leaders and key players in the SMB technology space.
“We’re tremendously excited by how well this SMB-focused conference has been received,” shared conference founder Harry Brelsford from his Bainbridge Island, WA office near Seattle. “We’ve completely sold out the trade show hall to our early conference sponsors and we’re actively seeking more space at the host hotel (Red Lion Hotel in downtown Seattle) to accommodate everyone! It’s a nice problem to have and clearly reflects the strengths of the SMB technology sector.”
SMB Nation, lead by HP as the marquee sponsor, will present 25 world class SMB technology speakers including ten Microsoft employees and four best selling authors (including security author Dr. Thomas Shinder, Windows Secrets author Brian Livingston and MCSE author Alan Carter). The conference will have a unique third-party paradigm allowing an arms-length and critical analysis of Microsoft’s wildly successful SBS product. There are also social events planned including a Caribbean Night Party on South Beach at Bainbridge Island. Registered attendees have consistently said the primary draw in coming to Microsoft’s home town is to hear directly from the SBS inventors, including SBS development and marketing team managers. A sampling of specific topics include security, extending Windows SharePoint Services, deep disaster recovery and profitable SMB consulting methodologies.
“Attendees, ISVs and vendors are greatly encouraged not to delay registering to insure availability of conference seats and lodging,” Brelsford added. “And don’t forget to tack on a few vacation days as the Pacific Northwest is known for its stunning beauty and warm Indian Summers!”
