I am invited! The IBM Leadership Alliance Conference

September 19, 2013 – 12:27 pm

A couple of days ago, I received a mail asking me to join Alistair Rennie (General Manager, IBM Collaboration Solutions ) at the sixth annual IBM Leadership Alliance conference, October 23rd – 25th, at the Fairmont Copley Plaza, Boston, Massachusetts.

The conference has it’s focus on IBM’s newest collaboration capabilities and solutions. IBM will share the latest on  strategy and technical direction, from Application Development and Social Integration, to Mobility and Messaging & Collaboration. Content shared during this meeting will include IBM confidential information that will be governed by the terms of the confidentiality agreement between IBM and each attendee. So do not expect any post about what will be presented at this invitation only event.

Hotel and flight is already booked. Public transportation seems to be fairly easy in Boston. And the hotel and venue is close to Boston Logan International Airport

  2. You might be lucky. Dublin has its own US immigration and customs office.
    This will let you do that admin stuff upfront, and deliver you to a domestic terminal in Boston.
    Very convenient!

  3. I never had any problems at immigrations. I would rather wait 10 minutes in Boston than have a layover for almost 5 hours. Hope they serve fish and chips at Dublin airport … and also grant access to free wifi :)

  4. Congratulations! Well deserved! Enjoy! It’s a benefit of being one of the ‘cool kids’…

  5. Dublin airport has pretty good free wifi.
    And I’m sure you’ll tell me afterwards that the US immigration service in Dublin is very convenient.

  6. The US immigration service in Dublin is brilliant. In Logan you exit through domestic flights, it’s straight from the plane to the taxi.

    Of course a 5 hour layover is no fun.

    Well, in theory …

    Please note that from from 31 March 2013 to 26 October 2013 the following flights clear US Customs and Immigration on arrival in the US, i.e. these flights are NOT subject to pre-clearance at an Irish airport.

    And my flight EI 139 is on that list :)
