GWAVA Provides Credit to Novell BrainShare Attendees for Airline Change Fees

GWAVA provides credit to Novell Brainshare conference based on GroupWise technology.

19 December 2008

GWAVA today announced that Novell customers that have already purchased airline tickets to attend BrainShare 2009 will be offered a credit to pay for the change fee that many airlines charge to change tickets.

Those wishing to change their flights to Las Vegas to attend GWAVACon January 25 – 27 2009 will be given a credit equal to the amount of the change fee charged by the airline. This credit will apply against the registration fee for attending. With the recent announcement that Novell will suspend BrainShare in March of 2009, GWAVACon becomes the largest Novell technology conference in the world.

GWAVACon Las Vegas will be the tenth GWAVACon worldwide, with previous events in Berlin, Munich, Sydney, Dallas, and San Diego.GWAVACon is a Novell-specific conference, focused on technical training around Novell technology, including the recently released GroupWise 8, Novell Teaming, ZENworks, OES and Linux. GWAVACon will also be the sole North American conference for the launch of GroupWise 8, the latest version of GroupWise. In addition to Novell technology, GWAVACon is a showcase for third-party vendors whose solutions support Novell technology.

“We know airline tickets are often unrefundable,” said Richard Bliss, vice president of marketing for GWAVA. “The global economy is making it hard for many companies to justify travel budgets. Offering this credit helps our customers be able to still attend the conference without incurring additional costs.”Novell is the major sponsor of GWAVACon Las Vegas and will have their engineering staff, product management, product marketing, and executives in attendance to help and educate attendees about exciting new features of GroupWise 8 among other Novell products. The credit is being offered to all Novell customers originally scheduled to attend BrainShare. To receive the credit and to register for GWAVACon, visit
