As part of the 10th year anniversary, Future-Net announced that it will be providing a limited number of complimentary full conference registrations to select IT professionals across the industry to their May event in Boston. And as an added bonus, a group of attendees will be going as a group to Fenway Park to see the Boston Red Sox vs Toronto Blue Jays.

Between the layoffs IT professionals have faced and the toll the recession has played on the workload of people who still have jobs, we felt this would be a great time to offer these complimentary registrations to the industry.
