European networking and knowledge sharing firm, J. Boye, are bringing a breath of cool, refreshing Northern European air into the stuffy and crowded US conference landscape; all happening in less than 3 weeks.

The J. Boye Conference (http://jboye.com/conferences/philadelphia09/), now in its fifth year in Europe and with a reputation as a benchmark industry event, is all about knowledge sharing among peers and industry experts. The program is free of vendor sales pitches and consultants promoting their services. Instead, it offers users and buyers a combination of focused and interactive sessions and a number of carefully selected practitioner case studies.

What's in it for me?
The J. Boye philosophy that it is cheaper to share knowledge than to buy it is gaining momentum. This philosophy underpins the conference, and all track sessions and tutorials have been designed to help delegates optimize the outcome and results of their projects and professional challenges with the tools and resources they have actually got.
