In addition to sharing knowledge and networking with peers and potential clients, we really enjoy the overall tone of the conference

"This is actually our third year of sponsorship for CMS Expo," said President Robert Nowak. "Each year, we've become a little more involved while getting great benefits from participating." Nowak noted that this year, Aluent Group will occupy an exhibition booth, receive prominent display throughout the conference, and lead three panel discussions.

Aluent Group Vice President of Business Development Justin Kerr will host the three panels, one of which focuses on how to grow a CMS agency, and the other two compare and contrast the capabilities of various content management systems. "It's going to be very interesting to break down the specific capabilities and features of CMS platforms," Kerr said. "The experts we're bringing onto the panels all have deep experience with their CMSs, and they'll be able to share real CMS costs and capabilities for specific project requirements."

Aluent Group also plans a special release of the second edition of its book Drupal and Joomla! — A Comparison of Project Processes and Costs, which details the practical differences between these two leading open source content management systems. "We think this resource is very useful, and it has been well-received," said Kerr, noting that CMSReport editor Bryan Ruby called it the best Drupal/Joomla comparison of 2013.

"Our second edition will be available first exclusively at CMS Expo, and attendees can get a printed copy at our booth," Kerr said. "For the second edition, we're adding more detail in our comparisons as based on reader feedback. We also plan to add some information about Wordpress and how it stacks up against Drupal and Joomla." Kerr noted that, like the first edition of the book, the second edition will be available as a free download on the website, but not until after the conference concludes.

Also, part of Aluent's sponsorship includes a discount for CMS Expo attendees, Kerr said. "You can use our discount code of CMSX26655 when signing up to attend the conference. This gets you a $100 discount off the registration cost."

Both Kerr and Nowak said they are looking forward to the upcoming conference in May. "In addition to sharing knowledge and networking with peers and potential clients, we really enjoy the overall tone of the conference," Kerr said, adding that his recent guest blog post detailed some of the fun and practical aspects of the event.
