Autotask Community - Day Zero

Yesterday was the big pre-day for Autotask Community. We had a good crowd. Good size. Good people. Great questions.

Here's a little feedback from one of the attendees:

    "Hey Karl. Your seminar was very useful. You should raise your price of admission! I drove 7 hours total today just to hear it and $29 was a steal IMO. Your insight to having been there and done that is very valuable….

    Thanks for putting this on. I got a lot out of it and have a bunch of good ideas to work on…."

Thanks, Brian!

The hotel at Opryland is freakin' enormous. I don't know a single person who hasn't wandered aimlessly lost at least once.

Big is one thing, but this is nine acres of indoor overlapping mazes. There are no shortcuts or easy ways to get where you want to go. Strange.

Anyway, the events kicked off with a really nice reception, followed by two vendor-specific parties. One was Level Platforms.

The other was a combo of MSPSN and IT Control Suite. They announced a backup system called Business Continuity as a Service. Offsite backups with full data recovery in less than 24 hours.

I didn't see all the vendors last night. But one stood out: Own Web Now / Exchange Defender brought something new to the universe. Pink and purple T-Shirts. The world is full-up white T-shirts, and approach full for black shirts. So this was a very nice change.

Vlad says the pink shirts are moving surprisingly well. They guys are taking them for their wifes. Uh huh.

If you are attending the Autotask Conference be sure to go by Vlad's booth and pick up a discount flyer for SMB Books. This offer is only available to people who visit his booth.

Today we kick off with keynotes by Bob Godgart and a panel moderated by Joe Panettieri from MSP Mentor.

Later in the day, Mark Crall is running a series of seminars with me, Travis Austin, and Terry Hedden.

Welcome to Nashville.
