Maybe you’ve heard: VAR’s annual Convention & Expo is undergoing a major transformation. Not only are we changing the name to The REal Show and holding the convention at the Virginia Beach Convention Center (for three consecutive years) starting in 2010, we’re also starting with a blank slate as we book speakers.

We want your help — we want to find the absolute best keynote and workshop speakers.

Have you heard a great speaker recently at a conference? Seen one on television or YouTube? Tell us about it by 11:59 p.m. on November 29! Use this quick and easy form to suggest a speaker for The REal Show 2010.

We’ll check out all the suggestions we get, then narrow the field — and then we’ll ask you, our VAR members, to help us pick. And if we wind up choosing a keynoter based on your suggestion, we’ll give you a free registration to The REal Show 2010 and prominent recognition during The REal Show for having recommended the speaker! If more than one VAR member recommends the same speaker, we’ll choose the first VAR member to suggest them.

We expect there will be hundreds of suggestions, so we can’t possibly make good on every recommendation, but we promise to review every suggestion made. So tell us about the speakers you want to see at The REal Show 2010, and tell us now!
