  49. <content:encoded><![CDATA[<p><span style="font-size: 14pt;">First of all a big THANK YOU to all of you who partiticipated at Social Connections in Chicago in any way.</span></p>
  50. <p><span style="font-size: 14pt;">Without you we couldn&#8217;t do an event!</span></p>
  51. <p><a href="https://i0.wp.com/socialconnections.info/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/SocCnx11-grouppic-1200.jpg?ssl=1"><img class="aligncenter" src="https://i0.wp.com/socialconnections.info/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/SocCnx11-grouppic-1200.jpg?resize=756%2C134&#038;ssl=1" alt="" data-recalc-dims="1" /></a></p>
  52. <p>&nbsp;</p>
  53. <p>We had 2 great days in Chicago and what a city! Friendly and welcoming people, good food and a never-ending shining sun. I&#8217;m sure that many those of us who were there definitely has Chicago on our list of vacation cities.</p>
  54. <p>What makes Social Connections so great is just that. That we arrange our conference in a new city and country each time. Then we all get to extend our network and meet both old acquaintances and new people every time. New IBMers, new business partners and new customers. Lots of people to get to know and learn from and new business opportunities for our sponsors.</p>
  55. <p><strong>Great thing no. 1</strong></p>
  56. <p>Our sponsors. We are truly amazed of how innovative you are. So many interesting and smart solutions you offer, so much expertise! And all this is available to all IBM&#8217;s customers. We are especially happy for our returning sponsors, but also our new sponsor friends which makes us equally happy.</p>
  57. <p><a href="https://i2.wp.com/socialconnections.info/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/SocCnx11-sponsors.jpg?ssl=1"><img class="aligncenter" src="https://i2.wp.com/socialconnections.info/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/SocCnx11-sponsors.jpg?resize=756%2C425&#038;ssl=1" alt="" data-recalc-dims="1" /></a></p>
  58. <p><strong>Great things no. 2</strong></p>
  59. <p>Our speakers. You are all great! The knowledge, the expertise, the diversity and depth of your sessions is amazing! We had sessions about IBM Connections Pink, Docker, sponsors showing their solutions and the all popular sessions on real life customer stories.</p>
  60. <p><a href="https://i2.wp.com/socialconnections.info/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/SpeakersChicago2017-ny.jpg?ssl=1"><img class="aligncenter" src="https://i2.wp.com/socialconnections.info/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/SpeakersChicago2017-ny.jpg?resize=756%2C753&#038;ssl=1" alt="" data-recalc-dims="1" /></a></p>
  61. <p><strong>Great things no. 3</strong></p>
  62. <p>All attending! You are the best! You came from near and afar. Many locals from Chicago and some of you came all the way from across the globe! That mix is hard to beat! See below some statistics. We were 167 attendees which feels like good number in the US where we are the new kid on the block. We also managed to get really great and big American customers there both attending and speaking. We were 70 companies represented which also are happy with. And 14 countries.</p>
  63. <p><img class="aligncenter" src="https://i0.wp.com/socialconnections.info/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/stats.jpg?resize=588%2C469&#038;ssl=1" alt="" data-recalc-dims="1" /></p>
  64. <p><strong>Great thing no. 4</strong></p>
  65. <p>Evening events! As some of you know we take pride in doing the full circle of networking by putting a lot of effort in finding a cool event for our gala reception to which all attendees are invited. In Toronto we for example visited Hockey Hall of Fame and in Stuttgart, Germany were visited Sensapolis which is an indoor playground and restaurant combined.</p>
  66. <p>This time we held the reception at the very cool table tennis club called AceBounce. That was if I can say awesome. It was so fun to see everyone playing matches with 2 or even 6 people in. All combined with really good food.</p>
  67. <p><img class="aligncenter" src="https://i1.wp.com/socialconnections.info/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/Chicago-main-space_2.jpg?resize=600%2C350&#038;ssl=1" alt="" data-recalc-dims="1" /></p>
  68. <p>So by this the team of Social Connections, also called &#8216;the Midnight Squad&#8217; as we mostly do our work around midnight, would like to thank you all again a fantastic 2 days in Chicago!</p>
  69. <p>&nbsp;</p>
  70. <p><span style="font-size: 14pt;"><strong>Last but not least</strong></span></p>
  71. <p>Social Connections 12 comes to <strong>Austria on October 16-17</strong>! We are now heading back to Europe and our fall event and the planning is already in full swing!

  144. <p>The last Gold sponsor to get highlighted in this series is Red Pill Now. A new sponsor to Social Connections!</p>
  145. <p>Since its inception, Red Pill Now has focused on providing new and exciting ways for organizations to get the highest possible ROI from their Notes data by looking beyond the Notes client. Rather than migrating data to other platforms, Red Pill Now’s development efforts focus on cost-effective, low risk solutions based on Java and  Graph technologies. The Red Pill Now API is designed to simplify development of modern, web-based desktop and mobile applications, while the Red Pill DIG portal allows for search and discovery of content across your entire Notes domain – something simply not possible using the Notes client.</p>
  146. <p>With a keen eye on outstanding user experience and interface design, Red Pill Now will work with you to leverage your Notes data in ways you may never have imagined – from design and building responsive or adaptive web applications, adding social capabilities, or making your data accessible to the Internet of Things, there is always an opportunity out there to maximize your investment and ROI from your Notes data.</p>
  147. <p>Make sure to check out their website at <a href="http://redpillnow.com" target="_blank">http://redpillnow.com</a> and their booth at social Connections in Chicago!</p>
