gantthead is once again excited to be bringing you our annual virtual conference and exhibition on Thursday, May 20, 2010. It's your opportunity to learn, network, earn PDUs and gain valuable knowledge all from the comfort of your home, office-or home office.

PMXPO 2010 is a fantastic way to get the trade show experience without all the trade show expense. You'll have the same interaction with experts, peers and solution providers, the same educational opportunities and the same professional networking capability, all within typical work hours, and all completely free.

This conference addresses the specific needs of project executives and aspiring executives, charged with managing project offices, program offices and project portfolios of organizations big and small. In five sessions-plus an exciting keynote presentation-we'll offer overviews of common PPM and PMO issues with valuable take-away materials, including templates, checklists, project plans and presentations that you can modify and use in your own practice.

Get all of this, without the hassles of travel, wardrobe and sore feet that come with the typical trade show experience. You won't be getting the pens, squishy stress balls and keychains that you pick up at a live conference, but you will get hand-outs that you can use, like product demonstrations and other special offers from vendors at their virtual booths.

Registration is free, so take a minute now and make sure you don't miss out on what promises to be one of the highest-value conference experiences in project management this year.
