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!
Congratulations on a fantastic conference!! I agree completely with your assessment that the Flash developers were just as jazzed as the ToolBookers
Still the best place to come to jump-start your e-Learning program.
Keep up the great work!
This conference had the best social atmosphere of any I have attended. Everyone was helpful.
Very good! Enjoyed the low-key, personable atmosphere. Very conducive to learning with the small sessions. Excellent networking and problem-solving atmosphere!
Personally, TBCON accelerates my knowledge and ability to efficiently use ToolBook by at least six months each year I have attended. I find it a very easy investment to cost-justify. And, on top of that, it is a lot of FUN!
Most of all, TBCON is a serious, focused three days with no frills. Lots of seminars, no vendors and expositions, long winded speeches, or tons of extra-curricular activity. Therefore, the money spent on the conference and getting there goes totally to your development and nothing else. I think it's the best bargain for the money.
I have only been to one worthwhile conference in the past five years (and I go to 5 to 6 a year as attendee, exhibitor, and speaker only because I have to for our business) and you know which conference that is! All meat, no fluff and smart presenters and attendees. I am telling you, I could be the poster child for your next conference! Our latest project has improved an order of magnitude over what it would have been without the conference.
This conference was by far the best conference I've been to. I took home a tremendous amount of information.
