Will There Be Another SourceCon?

Many of you have been asking questions about the next SourceCon. When will it be happening? Where is is going to be this year? Well, here are some answers to your questions!

You’ve asked if there will be another SourceCon, and the answer is YES – but it will actually be in 2010. Because of the current economic situation, many corporate budgets have been slashed for travel and education of recruiters and sourcers. SourceCon is gras-roots and self-funded (with no vendor sponsorship or exhibitors) – so in order to secure the hotel we have to guarantee the food and beverage and accommodation numbers. The reality is that if people do not attend we still have to pay for those rooms and meals. So, to mitigate the risk of a financial loss, the Event team has been asked to look towards February 2010 for hotel and meeting facilities in Atlanta. We are hoping to have the Grand Hyatt again, and will post as soon as dates are confirmed.

  1. That’s a disappointment – but can understand mechanics behind it.

    However, one of the biggest buzz always has been the competiton. Is there anyway where you guys can continue with Competition this year (may be same time as of last) and take actual conference next year as schedule.

    It’s one of the most awaited times of the year for me. Hope you can consider this point.


  2. Yes, I agree with Sarang. We must go ahead with the Sourcing Challenge, as it is the most awaited event in a Sourcer’s calendar…………………….
