Because of scheduling conflicts with other conferences and some of our speakers, we are rescheduling the Minasi Group Conference from March to possibly December.  Once we get speakers and others sorted out, we’ll give firm dates.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Minasi Conference 2013 Announced!

January 30, 2013 - Leave a Response


Hello Everyone!

Welcome to 2013!  It’s that time again – time to start planning for the next Minasi Conference!  In order to keep costs down yet provide the same great content and camaraderie you’ve come to expect from previous years, we are changing the venue from Virginia Beach, Virginia to Dallas, Texas.  We will be using the Hyatt Hotel – the same hotel used by Mr. Cisco himself, Todd Lammle, to give his Cisco classes.  See the Hotel page for more information.

The conference this year will be from May 5th through May 8th.  Be certain to mark your calendars and email your bosses!

We are getting our speaker list together so be sure to check the speaker page for who will be speaking.  Also, if you would like to give a talk, be sure to contact us to get added.  There are more updates on the way, so be sure to check back often!

Wrapping up Minasi Conference 2010

May 18, 2010 - Leave a Response

Hello Everyone!

I wanted to take this opportunity to publicly thank everyone who was involved in the Minasi Conference 2010.

An especially big thanks to David Page for all his support in setting up the logistics for the event and of course to everyone who spoke at the event.

It is safe to say that the feedback I got was entirely positive, and it seems that the event was extremely well received.

Over the next few days I will be uploading the slides from the event and adding the links below.

Thank you to all attendees for making this once again, a very special conference!

Looking forward to 2011 already!!

Nathan Winters

Mark Minasi is proud to announce the 5th Annual Minasi Internet Forum being held in Virginia Beach, VA May 2nd – May 5th 2010.

The Minasi conference is unlike any other tech conference you’ve attended before due to its intimacy, favorable student:lecturer ratio, variety of topics and quality of instructors. The conference is organized and staffed by volunteers from Mark Minasi’s forum and includes well known veteran lecturers like Mark Minasi, Rhonda Layfield, Todd Lammle, Roger Grimes, Microsoft MVP’s and author’s such as Aidan Finn, Nathan Winters and Eric Rux and forum members who just want to share what they’re doing.

The conference has enjoyed some prestigious special guest lecturers and this year is no exception. The chance to rub elbows and ask questions in such a small environment is found only at the Minasi conference. Previous years special guests have included:

-Cisco Guru and all around nice guy, Todd Lammle
-All things Security (now featuring the Cloud), Steve Riley
-Group Policy Experts Jeremy Moskowitz and Darren Mar-Elia
-Super Scripter, Don Jones
-Internet Fixer, Roger Grimes

We invite you to join us both online and in person. Please use the navigation at the top of the page for more information about accommodations, speakers, schedule, and registration.
