BLUG 2012: Perpetual revival

Posted by Yannick Goubet on Tue, Mar 27, 2012

Last week I had the chance to attend BLUG for the third time, with GFI that I met always with great pleasure.

I have to admit that once again it was an amazing event very well organized thanks to our friend Theo. The conference was, as usual top quality with a particular focus on Lotus Connection that seems to be a must have in the industry when companies want to become social.  We met the european community and kept moving with great discusion that we initiated at Lotusphere!

I expected to meet the Belux Lotus Domino community but I must confess I was surprised by the dynamism of this event. I have seen the event becoming every year more attractive with a perfect mix between professional and entertaining timing.

The local community remains dynamic over the year because of Theo creativity to generate fruitful interactions on the showfloor. The speed sponsoring initiative is always a good exercice for us as it forces vendors to improve it elevator pitch to gather as much as leads as possible.

The event itself drives worlwide Domino community with IBM Champions attendance. Between others, I met Chris Miller who posted this video on IdoNotes Blog where you can watch 3 geeks in a pool during the welcome reception performing a synchronized swimming routine :)

I would like to thanks the GFI Team for its welcome on booth.

And well done Theo for this perpetual revival.
