Enterprise 2.0: We’re Shipping Up To Boston

LiquidPlanner will be exhibiting at Enterprise 2.0 in less than a month, and we couldn’t be more excited for our big trip to the east coast. Enterprise 2.0 is THE conference to see the latest collaboration tools and technologies. We can’t wait to show off LiquidPlanner 3.0: our upcoming newly redesigned and updated version of LiquidPlanner, making online project management radically simple. We’ve also got some more announcements up our sleeves, plus tons of schwag (yep, the larger-than-life LiquidPlanner pens are back in action).

Having just moved from Boston to Seattle a few months ago, I have to admit: I’ve been feeling a bit homesick for that dirty water (that sounds a lot weirder on paper than it did in my head).  Although I may be biased, I think Boston is pretty great town. And in the summer? There’s no other place like it. Here are just some of the places that LiquidPlanner will be checking out while we’re stomping around Beantown:

Sheraton Boston Hotel

Sheraton Boston LiquidPlannerThis will be our home away from home for a few days. Not too shabby, right? You’ve got all of downtown Boston just outside your door. I remember walking by the Sheraton on a daily basis when I used to work not too far from there, and I always wanted to see the view from one of the top floors. Oh, and also: I know our LiquidPlanner customers love us, but don’t try to get our attention by holding up a boombox outside of our hotel and playing Peter Gabriel songs. It would be easier just to show up to our customer meetup…

Back Bay Social Club

…which will be held at Back Bay Social Club. I’ve heard rave reviews of BBSC, mainly about their cocktail menu, which I’m more than happy to research. By the time the LiquidPlanner team gets there, the patio will be open, and their infamous Social Burgers will be on the grill.

Hynes Convention Center

Hynes Convention CenterEnterprise 2.0 will be happening at Hynes Convention Center, and we hope that everyone in attendance will make time to come visit us at our booth (#218). For me, the word “Hynes” use to only symbolize a stop on the Green Line, but I’m excited to actually check out this 4,000 person stadium.

Newbury Street

Newbury StreetNew York City has Madison Avenue. LA has Rodeo Drive. Boston has Newbury Street. Filled with boutique and designer stores and beautiful people dining al fresco, Newbury Street is one of the most vibrant streets in the city and only a few blocks away from Enterprise 2.0. One of the things I love about Newbury is that you can window shop in Versace and then get a $10 manicure next door. Newbury is also famous for its amazing restaurants (check out Piattini and Sonsie if you get hungry while you’re exploring). But don’t stroll – this is Boston. Walking slow is considered a federal offense.
