Come to SNDCle if you like inspiration, if you like to create things, if you like to believe — there will be no rivers on fire and no rubber chicken will be served

Cleveland knows hard luck. Seriously, we’ve been called the “Mistake on the Lake,” our professional sports teams are far from great (far from good, actually), we’re in the “Rust Belt.” And our river caught fire. Yes, caught fire. But if you look closely, there’s an energy here. One of creativity, inspiration and innovation. It’s a place where people want to push harder, develop ideas, create things … make a difference. It’s a place that can draw a pretty strong parallel with the current state of our industry. Yes, things are changing — they have been for some time. Its uncomfortable, scary even. But just like here in Cleveland there is a huge opportunity to improve what we do. That’s why we’re the perfect host for SND’s 34th annual workshop. We want you to join us.

We’re building a different kind of workshop. First, we’re forcing folks out of the conference hotel so you can see some of the reasons why we love this city. You’ll walk a couple of blocks from the Hyatt Regency through downtown to One Cleveland Center, the site of some outstanding sessions. We won’t be serving any rubber chicken.

Come to Cleveland Oct. 11-13 for SND’s annual Workshop. Register here.

Coming Nov. 25: The SND Cleveland Black Friday sale

The day after Thanksgiving. Black Friday. The day America recovers from its overindulgence of turkey, dressing and Aunt Betty’s infamous pumpkin pie by heading out in the wee hours of the morning to catch the best deals on toasters, televisions and trinkets that at some point will lose their luster. But this Black Friday you can save some big money on a gift that will continue to inspire for years. And you don’t even have to leave the tryptophan-induced comfort of your own couch. This year, guarantee your spot at the SND Annual Workshop, Oct. 11-13, 2012, in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Capital of the World, Cleveland, Ohio by registering early. It’ll save you a chunk of money, get you amped up for next year and help make you feel a little better about that last round of leftovers.
