It was a new day, Sunday, May 22 and it was time to register for Amplify. After meeting up with Pam for some brunch, I made my way to the registration area, with signs of the event placed throughout the corridors leading to the registration area.

The first area I visited was the Expo booths, this time, a far cry from the big room that is customary or expected at events like GPUG Summit or the former Convergence. This was the first reality check as to what type of event Amplify would be. Seeing just a few booths was nonetheless encouraging as it reminds me that all major events we have today started out being small. But you could pretty much say the usual suspects were there: KwikTag, Olympic Systems, Rose ASP, Altec, eOne, Fastpath, Integrity Data, Journyx, to name a few. You can see the complete list of sponsors here.

Back at the booth, I came across Jay Manley, Director of Product Management and Altonique Burton, Executive Assistant at Mekorma. Jay had just arrived earlier to the hotel from his adventurous trip from Fargo.
