Overland Park, KS, September 23, 2010 — IIUG (International Informix Users Group, http://www.iiug.org) is an organization of volunteers dedicated to the Informix community. The interest in Informix and its users has not wavered since our first conference in 2008. The IIUG CPC committee is proud and committed to continue providing a quality conference containing cutting edge Informix sessions and showcasing quality Informix vendors.
The conference will be held at the recently renovated Overland Park Marriott, May 15-18, 2011. Sunday's kickoff will feature several informative tutorials and the Conference's three-day agenda will feature over 80 technical sessions. Based on the response of the hands on labs (HOL) at last year's conference they will be offered again in 2011. All sessions will be conducted by leading Informix users, as well as IBM Informix experts from around the world.
The conference is unquestionably a global affair and the single largest gathering of Informix users. Last year's attendance was comprised of Informix users from as far away as South America, Western and Eastern Europe, Asia and the Asia Pacific rim.
Conference registration opens in November with a special early-bird price for IIUG members of $525. Sponsorship opportunities are also available, and those interested are encouraged to sign up early. The committee expects a complete and early sellout of both attendee and sponsor spaces once again.
Details about the conference and registration information can be found at http://www.iiug.org/conf.

No other event in the world offers this much Informix content, access to Informix experts, and demos on the latest developments and innovations with Informix technology," Stuart Litel, IIUG President said. "I look forward to improving the event and strengthening our Informix community for years to come."
