This is always a favorite concept, but we spend a lot of money on a conference to which we cannot attend the vast majority of the sessions. IBM is going to great lengths to try to ensure that every speaker has slides well before the conference (our deadline is Dec. ...
In the pocket agenda and flipbook agenda, I would like to see all alternative times/days listed on each session. This would make scheduling easier than flipping through 2 different books to find out when that session is being presented again. IBM did this at the Blade Center X-Series Conference, and it ...
Let's face it... there's aren't enough AC power outlets in session rooms, and there never will be. If you're carrying your laptop with you in your yellow backpack, and if you're carrying the power brick, too, then the weight of a cheap little 6 outlet power strip isn't a lot ...

UPDATE: Inside info says this will happen! (but don't let that stop you from voting for it.)
I watch everyone flipping through the mini-flip sessions guide (behind our names tags) and also through the descriptive guide. There is no synergy between the two. Plus, there is no single page summary of what is happening each day in chron order.
The descriptive guide is grouped by session tracks ...
Post your thoughts on BoF, sessions or wanted to see/learn things at Lotusphere.
Thanks Bruce for adding this.
