. From beginning to end, MacTech Conference is built to help you network with peers, and meet new contacts. The atmosphere MacTech builds around breaks, meals, and evening activities (which include a tour of Hollywood’s most famous backlot on the iconic tram and conference party) is designed to make it easy for you to network.
Lion, iOS 5, and iCloud
. As the first major industry event after all these have actually shipped, MacTech Conference is a great opportunity for you to find how others are dealing with deployment, migration and support of these new technologies.
Start Off Right. Industry legend Guy Kawasaki will kick off the event with the keynote speech at MacTech Conference 2011.

Packed Schedule. Morning ’til Night
. MacTech is known for packing in value. As an immersive conference, we’ll have you busy from morning until night. On the first evening of the event, the iconic Universal Studios Tram will pick up conference attendees at the hotel to begin this private adventure. We’ll go behind-the-scenes on the legendary Studio Tour to explore Hollywood’s most famous backlot in the world’s largest working movie studio. Then, Paul Cuoco, Universal’s Technical Manager responsible for show theatrical systems and media integration will be on hand to talk to attendees about some of the behind the scenes technology that creates the magic. And, on the second evening, we’ll take a walk from the hotel down Universal’s CityWalk to Jillian’s. At Jillian’s, we’ll enjoy all that Jillian’s has to offer (bowling, Guitar Hero room, arcade, billiards and more). See http://www.mactech.com/conference/activities
Hand-picked Sponsors. MacTech Conference invites the sponsors that we believe our attendees are interested in seeing. These are people not only with solutions that you can use, but that give you ways to do more or increase revenue. Often, you get the opportunity to talk to the core personnel from these organizations and get real answers, and give real feedback.
MacTech Select Awards
. As a developer, it’s hard to get recognition for products. At MacTech Conference, attendees can submit their products for a vote by Conference attendees for their favorite technologies. See http://www.mactech.com/conference/awards
Special Presentation by Code 42

As an added bonus, Code 42’s CEO, Matthew Dornquast will be presenting an advance look at the upcoming major upgrade to their flagship product, CrashPlan PROe. And, as if that wasn’t enough, there will be free lunch
, and every attendee will get a free five-seat license
