it@cork conference only two days away

conor 24th of November 2008 by conor

This year’s it@cork conference is titled “GREEN IT – Reduce CO2, Raise Profits – Technology in Business Conference 08″.

There can be a tendency in business to think that anything Green is a bit happy clappy and this conference aims to address that myth head-on.

With speakers from BT, IBM, Dell and the ESB, you are unlikely to find a pair of sandals between them.

It is being held in the Radisson SAS Hotel in Little Island in Cork.

Price is €400 for non-members and €300 for members. If cost is a deal breaker, mail me and I might be able to do something for you with a further discount. web2ireland DOT editor AT gmail DOT com
