? of the Day: What are our greatest assets for IAITAM?

Submitted by Norm Roulet on Tue, 09/26/2006 - 15:21.

The International Association of IT Asset Managers (IAITAM) is holding their annual conference in Cleveland, October 18-20, which is a major win for the city! I've hosted several IT conferences in Cleveland and am always pleased by the response of participants to the Cleveland location... always positive. So I was interested to see how an international conference sells Cleveland to its members... and I think we as a community should update and expand the list of assets they are promoting. Read through the following, and add comments of what you think may make these conventioneers happy while they are in town...

#1 CMA Reopens with "Artists, intellectuals and anarchy"

This conference is happening right as one of the world's best museums reopens (Ocober 15th) and begins a world-class exhibit... both of which would interest this group... they should arrange to hop on Lolly the Trolly (asset #12 above) and take a private tour of our technological masterpiece of an expanded museum and the exciting Artists, intellectuals and anarchy with Evelyn... contact Shannon Masterson @ the CMA: 216-707-2477

#2 East 4th Street... Colonial... Mike the Hatter

One thing that is out of date on this list is shopping at Public Square (Flats, too, unless looking for a titty bar)... although anyone needing a hat should surely go to Mike the Hatter a block away on Prospect... and then shoot through the beautiful Colonial Arcade (and, BTW, THE Arcade is also on any top 22 list) and then turn left and hit NEO #2... East 4th Street... only a destination at night, but with Hard Rock and now Lola and soon that crazy bowling bar, this is becoming a hot destination of the Midwest
