WES 2009: Early Bird registration begins now!


While some may balk at thinking about WES 2009 before we’ve even reached December 2008, those people probably do not realize that WES is where the BlackBerry ecosystem gets its bread buttered. Besides, the early bird gets the BlackBerry, as the story goes.

RIM has posted a WES 2009 PDF e-brochure and budget planning tool at www.attendwes.com that outlines the costs of attending WES. More than a price pitch, the PDF is a useful tool to help plan for the total cost of attending WES, including registration fees and estimates for flights and hotel costs.

Registration for WES opens February 2nd, 2009. You must remember to register by March 6, 2009 to receive the Early Bird $400 discount! While you’re at it, you may as well sign up to be notified of the latest WES 2009 announcements. See you at WES 2009!
