SAP TechEd 2009 Phoenix is just days away, and we’re racing down the final stretch on preparations to make it a great event for all attendees.
We’re really excited to engage with the community, and this year, we’re adding a new dimension through some great Twitter integration throughout the entire conference.
Some of you may have seen our live video streaming event last month with keynote speakers Vishal Sikka and Ray Kurzweil, which was the first time SAP combined live streaming video next to the event Twitter feed for real-time comments and questions. We had 600 attending with over 350 Twitter comments and questions — some of which Ray and Vishal answered on the spot.
We’ll be doing more of that (live video + Twitter) for the SAP TechEd keynote presentation, the Demo Jam on Tuesday night, and then we’ll have live video interviews of SAP experts at the top of the hour every day from the clubhouse. (We’ll publish the schedule with speakers and topics later this week. Check back later at www.SAPTechEd.com/Live)
If you’re onsite (is anyone really not going to be there?), we’ll have a bunch of ways to follow the Twitter discussion, like we’ve put Twitter screensavers (showing the #SAPTechEd09 stream) on all the TechEd laptops plus plasma screens throughout the show floor. For a complete description of how we’re using video and Twitter at SAP TechEd this year, see our new Twitter page at www.SAPTechEd.com/Twitter. You’ll also find links and resources to help you get the most out of tweeting. Remember to include the hashtag #SAPTechEd09 so you can be part of the conversation and appear in the tweet stream!
