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.

I want you to know that I really enjoyed the conference and am hoping that my company will send me every year!
it was a great conference!
The best part was the opportunity to speak face to face with ToolBook and SumTotal people as well as the chance to get ideas from others.
What a Great Time I had at TBCON. The degree of professionalism demonstrated by the entire staff was awesome and it was a pleasure seeing the masters at work.
Gorgeous location!! Not only beautiful, but seemed to be fairly central for the origins of the attendees.
I would highly recommend attending TBCON. My work colleagues and I have attended the past two TBCONs and feel that each year what we have learned at TBCON has accelerated our use and knowledge of ToolBook by at least 6 months. There are many sessions at TBCON that are good for beginners; but I would especially recommend the preconference workshops as they will enable you to get hands-on experience using ToolBook. Best of all, you will meet lots of people who will become valuable resources for you as you become more familiar with ToolBook.
I just wanted to say... You guys are so cool! The world (and ToolBook) would be a poorer place without you! -- Tim Barham, SumTotal Systems
I went for the first time last year as a new person to TB. It's hard to describe the learning atmosphere at the conference. It's not all work though. After a long, hard 8 hour day in classes, some great entertainment, food, and various liquid refreshments are available. Sometimes, the entertainment is continued in the dorm area where great renditions of Australian songs (complete with authentic accents) are presented free of charge. So, my recommendation: go to Colorado Springs this summer and be prepared for a great experience.
Not like the typical stuffy conference. Probably because there were no vendors trying to impress others with flashy exhibits.
