VALA 2006: Connecting with Users
On behalf of the Conference Committee I would like to extend a warm invitation to attend "CONNECTING WITH USERS", VALA's 13th Biennial Conference and Exhibition.
To be held from 8 - 10 February 2006 at Crown Towers in Melbourne, the objective of this Conference is to support library and information organisations as they drive innovation and growth through the use of technology to meet the needs of their users. The 2006 VALA Conference will help you to make informed technology decisions, by providing analysis and experience on virtually all aspects of technology in library and information management services.
The conference theme of "CONNECTING WITH USERS" was chosen as it reflects one of our key challenges in the field of library and information technology. The keynote speakers, drawn from India, Germany, UK and the USA, were chosen for their expertise and work with major projects of significant interest and their understanding of current key issues. Together with an impressive range of local and overseas speakers reporting on innovative projects and topics of current importance, they will ensure that the conference provides a wide vision of emerging developments in libraries on both the local and world stage.
VALA2006 is the strategic conference for information professionals involved in technology in libraries and the information management sector. It will give delegates live access to insights developed from within the industry, as well as affording them a unique opportunity to view the latest technology products and solutions being demonstrated in the state-of-the-art Trade Exhibition.
Visit the VALA2006 Sponsorship and Exhibition Proposal page for details of the valuable opportunities available to your company or organisation to participate in VALA2006. Hurry, though - opportunities are selling fast.
Armed with the knowledge provided by attending the Conference and Exhibition, VALA delegates can make better, and more confident, technology decisions that will enhance the performance and efficiency of their information services in truly CONNECTING WITH USERS.
A number of organisations are planning associated events before or after the Conference. If you may be interested in holding a workshop in conjunction with the conference, please contact the VALA2006 Conference Office.
Waldron Smith Management will coordinate your accommodation requirements while you are in Melbourne.
Attractive rates have been negotiated for VALA2006 delegates.
The Conference Committee once again extends a warm welcome to you, and we look forward to seeing you at Crown Towers for VALA2006.
