Once again we have wrapped up another very successful OTM SIG Conference thanks to all of OTM users, developers, consultants and OTM related groups that attended and shared ideas and presentations. The conference took place July 28 – 31 in downtown Philadelphia and consisted of 36 different OTM/GTM-related sessions, eight open forums, 13 sponsor presentations, two general sessions featuring Development updates from Jim Mooney and Derek Gittoes . We had 339 attendees at this year’s event along with 26 event sponsors. This year in particular we had more users of OTM presenting then in the past and we hope this trend will continue. Presentations from the event are now posted on the OTM SIG website.
This year we added a mobile device to the event offering. We received a lot of great feedback on it as it provided information on attendees, maps, agenda and survey tools.
Our reception was a fantastic night aboard Mushulu, a floating restaurant on Philadelphia’s Penn’s Landing. Everyone had a great opportunity to network and enjoy refreshments outside.
Vince Papale delivered the key note speech. He is a former player for the Philadelphia Eagles who made the team after an open tryout. He talked about determination and reaching goals. Vince Papale was the subject of the 2006 Disney movie Invincible. This speaker was well received especially by our Philadelphia Eagles fans!
Next years conference is already in the plans. Mark your calendars for August 10 – 13, 2014 at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel once again. We hope to see you all back again!
