      Do you have an agenda yet for the meeting? What time will it start on August 3? What time will it end on August 6?

      Are there any special hotel "deals"?

      Thanks so much!

        I'll update everyone with the date that the Agenda will be available after this week's OTM SIG call. I expect it to be soon, but we need to narrow down the presentations in order to come up with the final Agenda.

        When you register online with Meeting Expectations, it will give you the option of making hotel reservations at the DoubleTree Hotel, where we've set aside rooms and have a preferred rate. Other hotels may be available in the area, but I haven't looked into them, to be honest

          Just a quick update for everyone. We're voting on the presentations now and expect to have a list of topics and presentations out by Wednesday or Thursday. This will allow everyone to review and then sign up before the Early Bird Registration ends on May 31st.

          The final agenda (including presentation times) will be available soon.

          We realize these timelines are close and appreciate your understanding.

              Okay everyone - I have an updated Agenda for the OTM SIG User Conference 2008. Below you'll find the PDF version:

              Click to download:OTMSIG_OUC2008_Agenda.pdf

              Please excuse the delay in pulling this together. This year's conference is jam-packed full of presentations (3 days with 3 separate tracks!) and has been much more complicated for us to organize. In the end, we're working hard to improve upon last year's success.

              The Conference is filling up and if you wait, you may lose the chance to attend. Register now at the link below!

              I hope to see you there!

                I wanted to share an email from Tara (Meeting Expectations) that details the discounted rooms that we have set aside at the DoubleTree Hotel, where the conference is being held.

                Congratulations on your decision to attend the OTM Conference in Philadelphia on August 3-6, 2008. We have a fantastic line-up of speakers and sponsors with some exciting information to share.

                In comparing the conference registration list with the hotel reservation list, we noticed that you do not have a reservation at the Doubletree Philadelphia. OTM has secured a limited number of rooms at a discounted rate of $179.00 (plus tax) for single or double occupancy. Please be sure to make your reservations as soon as possible in order to secure this discounted rate. The rate will expire on July 14th.

                Visit the Doubletree Philadelphia web-site at:


                or you may call the Doubletree directly at (215) 893-1626. Be sure to request the Oracle Transportation Management group rate (code OTM).

                We look forward to seeing you in August!

                OTM Board
                In addition, I believe you can make Hotel reservations at the same time you register for the conference.
