I have attended several of the Lotus User Group events in the past: ILUG, UKLUG, BLUG, and the MWLUG to name a few.This #BLUG this year in Antwerp was simply outstanding. At 5:30 on a Friday afternoon the closing general session was packed! The standing ovation for #BLUG architect @TheoHeselmans was well deserved. Afterwards, We continued to stay around and network with partners and customers for another hour. Everyone was watching the projected image of the tweet fountain, which gave a social recap of this outstanding two day event.
Although social tools are great, I think the fact they can bring people together from all over the world for this kind of face to face event is the real benefit.
Off to Rotterdam tomorrow, then Gouda on Monday for a partner session with #Silverside, our BELUX #DOCOVA partner. Looking forward to DOCOVA customer round table event in NE Holland before I fly back Thursday from Amsterdam.
