InfoToday 2003
InfoToday 2003 offers information professionals and knowledge managers an unparalleled opportunity to expand their horizons and extend their professional expertise. The three co-located conferences, National Online, KnowledgeNets, and E-Libraries, feature a powerful, comprehensive agenda that is guaranteed to stimulate your thinking and energize your professional development.
Each of the conferences is a unique, focused event, but programs are planned to encourage attendees to leverage interrelationships and learn from others with related interests. A Gold Pass allows you to explore all the sessions in any of the three-day conferences, and create a customized conference schedule that especially meets your needs and interests. Or you can purchase a Platinum Pass and attend up to four in-depth pre and post-conference workshops in addition to the three conferences.
New for 2003 is a special Content Management Symposium offered on Thursday afternoon as part of all three conferences. Recognizing the growing importance that organizations are placing on content management initiatives and the opportunities in this arena for information professionals, this cross-conference forum provides an in-depth, intensive briefing on CM software, tools, technology, and strategies. The keynote and breakout sessions feature well-known experts as speakers, and will equip information professionals with the necessary fundamentals to become players in content management projects. 
InfoToday 2003 is unique. You will find in-depth coverage of topics that are crucial to today’s information professionals, a carefully planned and focused trio of conferences, dozens of speakers who are experts in their fields, and an emphasis on practical, yet innovative ideas and practices that you can immediately put to work in your own organization.
