The next days at the convention center where amazing. We had so much interest in CRM-Project and we spoke to so many potential partners and customers that it was a really great succes to be at the WPC11 in LA.

I spoke to people all over the world and it is really nice to see the interest in CRM-Project worldwided. This proofs again that it is an amazing product.

Every evening we had a different party in downtown LA or Hollywood so I had the time of my life.
Did spoke with lots a Dutch companies at the WPC11 like CWR, CRM Resultants, Evident, Tempero and really good times in LA.

Next year the WPC will be held in Toronto so off to Canada next year :)

2011.07.09 - Day 2 in Los Angeles at the WPC11

Day 2 - Sunday and just a little bit time issue problem. Woke up at 01:30 local time and got back to sleep till 06h. Today we are going to the Staples Center where the WPC11 is and we are going to visit the itara booth.
Booth looks really nice and lots of work need to be done. After a whole day of preparation we went back to the hotel for a quick shower and nap.
I just fell asleep when suddenly the roomcleaner was next to me, it scared the hell out of me and her.
In the evening we where invited for the openingsparty but we missed it and by mistake we ended up at ICON club on the rooftop across the Staples Center next to Hooters. It was really an amazing party, GREAT!!!
Now off to bed because next day starts the WPC11.

2011.07.09 - Off to Los Angeles for the WPC11

Saturday the 9th of July and again at Schiphol Airport. I see Schiphol Airport more often then I see home lately. Today I am flying to first Detroit and then to Los Angeles for attending the Worldwide Partner Converence 2011. My plane is boarding at 07:50h, so I had to be early at Schiphol (05.30h pfff).

The service on the Delta Airbus 300 was really great and seats where comfortable with each a private scree, so I saw 3 movies during the almost 8h flight :).

We landed in Detroit at 16h GMT+1 (10h local time) and I must say my first time to the USA and it is big!!!. We had to go through the passport check, nothing like I use to. In the US everything is so heavy secured. Weather in Detroit: 25 degrees so really nice.

Just spend the next 4 hours at Detroit, due to the fact tha the plane to Los Angeles had some unknown technical issues, so we had to wait for a new plane to come available.

Spoke to really nice American people and everybody is so kind. Really to like it. Detroit airport is HUGE!!!!!, Schiphol is compared to Detroit just tiny.

But after 4 hours finally off to Los Angeles and we landed at LAX at 15:15 local time to I have a 9 hours timelab with the Netherlands.

Waiting for my suitecase and almost 1,5 hour for a cab GRRRR I arrived finally at my hotel at 17:30h local time.

So taking a shower and seeing for the first time downtown LA, really huge and nice.

I am off the the welcomes party at the Mariott ION Rooftop bar now, so now bed for me (and awake for 24 hours now). I will post tomorrow morning again.....
