The 2010 IDSA National Conference is fast approaching (Aug 4-7). This year's event is in one of our favorite cities, Portland, OR (home to the soon-to-be-revealed Core77 retail operation). We'll be there, happily participating as a media sponsor and coordinating the Portfolio Review, as always. And of course, we're putting the wraps on plans for our annual conference bash.
The conference theme is DIY - Threat or Opportunity? and addresses the booming DIY movement from all angles - technology, craft, crowdsourcing, independent producers, and more. They've put together a great list of speakers, with more being added regularly. And they're inviting participation through photo uploads and a DIY poster initiative.
To sweeten the deal, the IDSA is running a contest to give a free registration and hotel stay to a lucky attendee. The contest is open to all registrations completed now through July 6, so sign up before next weekend to get in on that. See you in PDX!
