Chicago Summit

Palm Springs was a beautiful venue for the February Performance Testing Council Summit and although it was a whirlwind summit, there was plenty of time to network, great presentations and lots of dialogue swirling among the participants!



Now, it is time to do it again and since the economy is on everyone’s mind, we want to make travel as convenient and cost effective as possible so the next Performance Testing Council Summit is moving to the Windy City!! Chicago is a great location and during the month of May it should be easy travel for almost everyone! Plus, we have a great rate at a excellent downtown location on the Magnificent Mile!!
