Convergence EMEA 2009

Earlier this year Microsoft cancelled it's Convergence EMEA 2009 event. It was supposed to take place in November, in the beautiful city of Vienna. Reason for the cancellation according to Microsoft was the economic downturn. But Microsoft vowed it would rework the concept, and come with something new. They kept promise, details for Convergence EMEA 2009 are now slowly becoming available.

Instead of one big event in one city, spanning multiple days, there are now multiple one day events, all over Europe. The idea behind it? Microsoft brings Convergence to you, so you don't have to go to them. More localized content, less travel expenses, shorter duration. All for the benefit of the customers.
The selected cities are London, Vienna, Frankfurt and Rotterdam. It's all taking place end of October, beginning of November. Find out more on the dedicated website.

I got to attend Convergence in Munich a couple of years ago and last year in Copenhagen. Lots of good sessions, lots of information, great quality speakers. I am curious to see if the change in concept has affected the overall quality.
