Okay, folks, the biggest convention of 2014 is going to be the combined IBM/SAM convention in St. Louis. The last combined convention drew 1900 people--the largest convention ever in the USA.

This time the theater seat limit is 1400, so I would suggest that you take advantage of this early registration offer not only to save money, but to make sure you GET IN! See below for the press release:
