Min-e-Con is Here!
As the statement below says, we have ended our annual conference in its original format. However, we have just created the 2011 Min-e-Con to be held May 24 - 26, 2011 in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Click here to learn all the details.
Statement from Jeff Rhodes
President, Platte Canyon Multimedia Software Corporation
We have reluctantly decided to end The ToolBook User’s Conference/e-Learning
Authoring Conference. While we know that this conference has been a
professional highlight for many of you, we feel the need to concentrate on our
core strengths, namely creating software for Improving the Lives of Training
It has been a joy to get to know all of you who have attended the conference
over the past twelve years. Thank you for all your support. Rest assured, we’ll
spend the time that we would have used on the conference making our product
line even stronger. We also may try to organize some webinars or other online
events as well.

My first post here after TBCON: and indeed it was really great experience.
Thank you Jeff!!! and all the participants!
I thoroughly enjoyed the conference. I made some good contacts and was very impressed by the cooperation exhibited by attendees, both individuals and vendors. It's quite a refreshing change from some experiences in the past.
My favorite part was all the helpful ideas that materialized when it became known I had a "code" problem.
Another great conference! What more can I say?
Perfect location due to weather and the casual atmosphere of the campus.
Good location. Easy access from airports and plenty to do and see. Town was easy to get around for those not staying in dorms.
This is just a short "Thank You" to everyone that was at TBCON this year. This was my first experience, and it was GREAT! I learned a lot and got a lot of great ideas. I dealt with some concepts that have been really hard for me to grasp, but was explained them in a manner that I could understand. Not to mention all the info on VBTrain and the .Net stuff. On that note, this is to anyone that has never been to TBCON, "GO"! Not only is it a good time, but a excellent learning forum. Do what ever it takes to make it to the conference next year, beg the boss, scrounge up the change for travel and expenses, whatever it takes, it will be worth it.
First of all, it was awesome...lots to do and some really great sessions!!! The socials were really really fun, the lodgings were better this year (at least for me anyway in those new apartments), and there was lots to be learned!
The conference was so beneficial that one of our team members paid for everything out of their pocket because our company said conferences aren't helpful. That person is planning on writing a letter explaining the experience and the information and knowledge gained by attending this "unexplainable" mind-blowing conference.
This conference was by far the best conference I've been to. I took home a tremendous amount of information.
Being a very novice user I appreciated being able to come and learn as much as I did. It was affordable, nicely located, and packed with information and not cluttered with sales pitches or vendors. It stayed focused on helping ToolBook users. Thanks!!
