A couple of years ago, several Bloggers (Eric Hicks, Johan van Mierlo, Mike Temporale, and Stephen Hughes) went through a dozen nightmare situations trying to attend interview appointments with big vendors like Palm during CES 2007. Quite frequently, the vendor was late or was a â€œno-showâ€.
They decided that there â€œhad to be a better wayâ€ to do this and spare themselves the disappointment and wasted time and energy.
This year, this same group of Bloggers got together and held their very first CntrStg event, where the vendors would come to the Bloggers, and it looks like it is going to be an extremely successful event indeed!
It looks like it is going to be a wonderful CntrStg based on the schedule below:
