SMB Nation East Workshop Announced! 3rd Annual Event, March 29-30, 2008, Montclair, New Jersey Emphasis on Microsoft Response Point small business telephone system, Windows Small Business Server, managed services and businesstechnology topics of interest to SMB consultants! Over 150 small and medium business (SMB) technology consultants will meet for a weekend conference at Montclair State University’s executive conference center to learn more about Microsoft Response Point, the new small business telephone system. Other content will include a “first look” at the new Windows Small Business Server next release (“Cougar”) and the announced mid-market product Windows Essentials Business Server (“Centro”). A significant underlying theme for the event is SMB 2.0 where attendees will get a glimpse into the cloud and discuss hosted services in the SMB environment.
“We are especially pleased that the Microsoft Response Point product team is using our event to highlight its new and already popular small business telephone system. There will be four deep dive sessions on the product including a look at the Service Pack 1 (including SIP trunking for full-on VoIP) and a look at SMB consulting business models surrounding this opportunity. Already attendees are expressing a hunger to learn more about Response Point and add this product to their consulting offerings.” Stated Harry Brelsford, CEO of SMB Nation and 15-time author. “You will also learn how to integrate the stand-alone Response Point product with a Windows Small Business Server environment. One of the hidden hooks for the weekend is to take advantage of the Response Point hands-on labs so you can learn the product and start to deploy it for customers immediately!”
The three hour content sessions allow for deep dives into the business and technical subject matter and the speakers are all accomplished industry professionals. “Consider this your weekend Pocket MBA in SMB technology” Brelsford added. “We also moved the event to be much closer to New York city and there is direct train service from Penn Station – a mere 14-miles away!”
