Prior to the Expo, both Matt and Nancy will also be hosting Alfresco's Chicago Meetup on Wednesday, April 29th. The one-day event will offer product roadmap updates, best practice customer case study presentations, technical workshops and an informal networking session.

"In all parts of the world, in today's economic climate organizations are looking to lower costs across the board." said John Powell, CEO of Alfresco Software. "We wanted to offer an open source approach to our Meetups and felt it was important for us to come out to our customers, partners, and community rather than them fly to us. These events are running across the US, South America, Europe, Singapore and Australia. Around the world in thirty days we'll meet face-to-face over one thousand people. We'll provide continued education on how to extend the value of Alfresco and open source technology. "

  • New York City, May 5
