SMB Nation Fall: Five Parties Will Pack Plenty of Punch
The SMB Nation Fall conference (Oct. 22-24, Las Vegas) is set to attract hundreds of VARs and IT service providers — and maybe even a former heavyweight champion of the world. There will be plenty of business chatter during the daytime sessions. But when the sun sets, at least five conference parties will arise. Here’s a look at the potential evening action, which should pack plenty of punch.
After checking in with a range of SMB Nation experts, bikers and maybe even a boxer or two, here’s the event party lineup so far:
Thursday Night, Oct. 21, 8:00 p.m.: The Pocket MBA College Kegger, hosted in Harryb’s hotel room. It’s the penthouse suite, folks. Follow @smbnation on Twitter for potential details, The VAR Guy hears.
Friday Night, Oct. 22, 7:00 p.m. to Midnight: The ASCII Cup. It’s a VIP party, which begs the question: Can The VAR Guy gain entry? Hosted in Caesar’s Palace. Have some drinks, lose a tooth, and maybe — just maybe — pet a tiger with former heavyweight champ Mike Tyson. Will Tyson really be in the house? The VAR Guy hasn’t been able to confirm that ringside rumor.
Saturday Night, Oct. 23, 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.: The Autotask party by invitation only. Rumor has it Cloud Services Depot will lend a hand with the bash. Stop by the Autotask booth for details, The VAR Guy hears.
Sunday Night, Oct. 24, 8:00 p.m. to… whenever: A CompTIA Kegger in Harryb’s hotel room — assuming the room recovers in time from the Thursday night bash. Once again, conference insiders say attendees should follow @smbnation for details.
So, which parties will The VAR Guy attend? The world may never know… because our resident blogger no longer tweets or blogs from industry bashes… Or does he? Hmmm…
