    I'll be there and hope to see you. I'll be speaking on the the 6th at 3:30PM, make sure you plan on attending since I have a great experience planned for all. For more details: Phone Ninjas.wmv - YouTube Door prizes for the first 250 people who attend.

    I'll also have a booth right when you walk in, so make sure you stop by and say hi! See you in Vegas!

    I will be there all week, back home, back for driving sales.

    I will buy a drink to anyone from the forums that finds me.

    Couldn't get the boss to send me to both Driving Sales and DD11...maybe next year. Curious to hear from those who go to both which they prefer or if they are different enough that it makes it worth it to go to both.

    I will be at DD11 and would welcome the chance to have a Dealer Refresh meetup.

    This will be my first Digital Dealer Conference, so would like to ask for a few tips:

    1 - Should I lug my laptop around all day or are the sessions more about taking notes on an ipad or legal pad?

    2 - There are several sessions that I would like to see that are happening at the same time. Obviously cannot be at both. For the sessions that I cannot attend, do the speakers or presenters make their presentations available on slideshare or other places for later viewing?

    Thanks and any other advice that you can share would be appreciated!

    Bill - it would be a pleasure to connect!

    1. iPad should do the trick UNLESS you have the new MacBook Air 11"
    2. Yes - most of the presentations are made available on a jumpdrive.

    Hi Bill,
    I thought I'd chime in and help with my opinions.
    1. You can certainly "lug your laptop" if you want but there won't be any wi-fi available so you might want to stick with the legal pad or ipad to take notes.
    2. We (as in Digital Dealer) don't make the presentations available but you are free to ask the speakers for copies and most of the time theyll share it with you.
    Hope that helped and I look forward to meeting you at Digital Dealer.

    Hey Bill, I ditched my laptop after the first morning session and went right to good old pen and a legal pad! A lot of the sessions are cram packed with info and you miss out typing to much (they can do 3 LOF's in service by the time I type this to you) and there are no tables, just chairs.

    Also, grab a good size jump drive, most everyone will share their presentation with you if you hand them one to down load it, most will get your biz card and send it to you, and some even had jump drives with their presentation on it to give to you.

    Also, I found a good time to visit the vendor area is in the morning, thats if you haven't stayed out late with Jerry, Alex, and Jeff!
