The Business Forum Y2K Conferences
In 1999 we organized a series of conferences under the title of The Business Forum Y2K Conference in most of the major cities in the Pacific States of America, where an in-depth information exchange occurred. These conferences began with a continental breakfast, followed by a series of short presentations or lectures from the leading experts of the time. At the conclusion of the morning presentations, after a short break, our guests then moved into another room for an open discussion Business Forum Presentation Luncheon.
A selection of materials from the sponsors was made available at all the Conferences and an informal reception was held at the close of the meeting, so that the speakers and our guests could talk further.
We thought we would leave the history and results of those conferences on our site for a while as a reminder of the real worries that were being expressed at the time.
