Welcome to ICON UK 2014
If you're anything like this year's organising team you had a tear in your eye when it was announced that ICON UK 2013 would not continue into 2014. We couldn't let that happen, so we've picked up the baton and are running with it.
ICON UK will take place on the Friday 12th of September 2014, in the IBM Southbank Customer Centre.
Join us and up to 200 other IBM professionals to learn, network, share experiences and highlight best practices through 4 tracks. There's a wide range of technical sessions including some of the latest developments presented by some of the leading speakers in the global IBM community. It's only rarely that you get so many excellent speakers in one place outside of Connect.

This event would not have been possible since 2005 without two very special people Terresa and Warren Elsmore, who we would like to thank for all their efforts for these events, and others, over the past years. If you catch up with them anywhere, please be sure to buy them a drink. ;o)

Can we also extend our thanks to Cardiff University who provided a great venue for UKLUG 2012. An IBM customer themselves, Cardiff University gave us a great presentation in London, all the way back in 2008. Now we have returned the favour by bringing UKLUG to Cardiff.
As Paul Mooney blogged 'it checked all the boxes: Energetic, fun, engaging and content-rich'. We had a great turnout with a lot of old friends and also new faces amongst the attendees. The Manchester Museum Of Science And Industry was an excellent venue where we presented over 30 great sessions.
Thankyou to everyone who joined us in Manchester and made it such a great event. Further thanks to Ted Stanton IBM WW Exec for Software Solutions for a great keynote, and thanks to our excellent speakers. We would also like to give a special thankyou to our sponsors who made UKLUG 2011 possible.
We have now had four UKLUG conference events which have proved to be a real success. You can get some idea of their impact from this feedback from Manchester and our previous Edinburgh conference:
"First let me say, fantastic work by the UKLUG organizers and crazy hard workers. They did a fantastic job again. Great location, great sponsors and great organization." Carl Tyler
"It was another great UK Lotus User Group in Edinburgh. Very well organised, by some great volunteers, and excellent value as it was free to attend" Paul Farris
"UKLUG is done for another year, and what a fantastic conference it was. Warren, Kitty and the rest of “Team Amazing” did the unthinkable yet again. I honestly have no idea how these guys manage to put on such superb events, and for free too" Ben Poole
