Speakers include Matthew Roche, who I met at TechEd 2007, and who is not only extremely knowledgeable on SQL Server, but also does a great job presenting tough topics! (He won the Iron Architect competition at Tech Ed that year!)
Also on the agenda is another fellow MCT and friend of mine, Ted Malone, who also is a crack expert in SQL Server and has a natural gift for explaining even the most difficult subjects.
More info on the speakers (for the BI show) can be found here:
These conferences should give you the best of both worlds of live shows & web casts, you'll get great sessions combined with live access to thespeakers all without having to leave your home or office.
It should be a great time!
