Dear VNUG member and friend,

It is sad to announce that we at the VNUG Board are forced to cancel this year's VNUG Conference. The reason to it is there are too few members who have signed up.

However, there have been considerable interest from partners who have signed up, but with too few members participating; we cannot justify arranging the VNUG Conference this year.

What causes this is something we need to analyze and learn from. We know there are many who feel that the Conference in September suits better.

From the board, we see 2012 as a year off (with grief of mind) and focus for a new Conference Autumn 2013. After 10 years of excellent feedback we know there is a big interest of a Nordic Conference, so be aware that we will be back.

Our Golf champion Ove Lövgren will hold the trophy for an extra year.

We promote the Conferences in Las Vegas and Dresden.

If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact any member of the board.

Best regards,
The VNUG board
