Yes, that's right. You call it the European ISV Convention. IT Europa, the UK-based channel newsletter-cum-research org, has named the date for its second annual gig for European ISVs - it runs from 6-8 February 2008 in Frankfurt.
Qualifying ISVs get to go free of charge and can listen to speakers on topics such has the "implications of SOA and SaaS on application delivery, mobility and unified communications, and strategies for collaboration and creating value".
Does this float your boat? Then shuffle over to the organisers for more info.
If you have got this far, you almost certainly know that ISV stands for independent software vendor. And if you didn't know what the acronym meant, then we can confidently say that this is not the show for you. ®
