For the first time ever, Spousetivities is coming to Dell Storage Forum! Dell has heard the IT community, and wants show its support of a family friendly conference environment and join in the support of a positive work-life balance. This means that at Dell Storage Forum 2012 (DSF2012) in Boston this coming June (the official conference dates are June 10-13), Spousetivities will be offering a range of fun, exciting, organized activities.
So what does this mean, exactly? Well, the answer to that depends on who you are:
Conference attendee: If you’re going to be attending DSF2012 as a conference attendee, this means you can bring your family and they will have some great activities in which to participate. You don’t have to worry about your family members being alone in the city, or being bored all day long while you’re at the conference. They’ll be out having fun with other Spousetivities participants, leaving you free to focus on the conference and getting the most out of your time.
Non-conference attending companion: If you’re going to be traveling with your conference-attending spouse, having Spousetivities at DSF2012 means that you’re going to have a great week! There are some delightful activities planned (more details below) where you can explore the Boston area, see some historical sights, and get to meet other people just like you.
Sounds good so far, right? Now, I’m sure you want to know what sort of activities will be available. Well, that’s the best part! There is something for everyone. Here’s a quick peek:
- The week will begin with a wonderful breakfast–I call it the “Getting to Know You” breakfast–where the Spousetivities participant will receive a gift bag and have the chance to win some cool prizes.
- After the breakfast, there will be opportunities for whale watching or a trolley/walking tour around MIT. Later in the day, you’ll have the opportunity to take a private trolley tour around the Boston area.
- The next day there are options for a wine tour and a chance to walk the Boston Freedom Trail.
- The third day of activities offers up a private lunch cruise or a private trolley/walking tour around Harvard. Both are great events!
Dell has sponsored Spousetivities to help reduce the costs for these activities, though there is still a fee associated with each. Each activity has been designed as a private event for our group–so you’ll be traveling only with other Spousetivities participants. Everything has been arranged for you!
If you’re ready to sign up, just click over to the DSF2012 Spousetivities registration page and register for whatever activities you’d like. (Please note that I can’t offer refunds for activities.) I’m excited about Spousetivities at Dell Storage Forum 2012 and I can’t wait to see you there!
