BriForum Europe Presenters and Sessions Announced

Can you believe that BriForum Europe (Oct. 4-6) is less than two months away?

Can you believe that BriForum Europe (Oct. 4-6) is less than two months away?

This is our third BriForum and the sessions get better with each one! This time around we made a major change in the way that we pick the sessions. Instead of inviting certain speakers and then asking them what they would like to present, we opened up the process to everyone and invited anyone to submit session proposals. The result of this is the list below; a very diverse and technical set of 35 breakout sessions. As you can see, this is not a "replay" of BriForum 2006 in the US earlier this year. The top 4 or 5 sessions from BriForum in the US will be presented in Europe, but the other 30 are brand new sessions with all new content!

We're compiling the session abstracts and speaker bios now, and we'll post the full details by next Wednesday.

Registration is now open for BriForum, although due to our venue this event is limited to only 200 attendees, and people are signing up fast. We highly recommend signing up soon if you want to attend.

And remember, attendees of BriForum 2006 in Washington DC this past April will get online access to all of these session videos for free. (And of course, attendees of BriForum Europe 2006 will get free online access to the videos from next year's BriForum 2007 in the US.)

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I can't wait.  Will you be doing the same thing for the next BriForum in the U.S. as well?
I want BriForum Oz, now now now now NOW!
*crawls back under rock*
Allrite, so I registred right away but I'm still unclear on how I pay for the event? The registration form didn't ask for any credit card details nor did the confirmation mail.
I am so gutted that I won't be able to make it, maybe next time....  <sniff>
Drop me a line at some stage to discuss Andrew? I'll be moving to Sydney, as I have a start date of 3rd Oct. Dave
I registered 2 weeks ago for this event and haven't received an invoice to pay yet ??
Would have been easier to enter credit card details.
Hi everyone,
For BriForum Europe, we are sending invoices to everyone. With our event in the US, we received requests from most of the European attendees for invoices, so this is how we decided to handle this event.
Looking forward to seeing everyone--this is going to be a great event!
Ok, so I'm from Sweden, the country with most credit card unbelivers. Still I think it's a mistake to not charge right upfront with the credit card. Those invoices will take eons to track and I would assume that circa 20 percent or more of the people registrering will never pay. I think you will have a major disaster here!
another one for BriForum OZ...
how many attendees do we need to justify one Brian??
I think BriForum OZ is a great idea. We've been kicking around the idea internally and talking to some folks down there about logistics. Let's take this conversation offline and try to move forward on this topic. If you're interesting in BriForum OZ, drop me an email at and we'll go from there.

Hey Stuart,
I know it's too late for you :( but we have now enabled the site to take credit cards. Thanks for the feedback!
I see a lot of new content for Bri-Forum Europe, is there a possibility to have DVDs available?
