Ok lets face it, there is no conference about CorelDRAW Graphic Suite X4 in Sweden, Europe, in 2008, as I know it, but there is one, CorelDRAW Unleashed User Conference 2008 in Lucky Luke country, Arizona, USA.
If you feel to go for a trip across the atlantic, then there is a conference this summer, in Phoenix, Arizona, USA. And it happens to be held by Foster D. Coburn III himself. Foster is the foremost instructor of CorelDRAW, said by Tony Severenuk, Corel Corp. in Canada. Foster is also a Corel-Certified instructor and best-selling author with over 8 books on CorelDRAW. He is one of those people who, more than most people, know how to work and instruct on how to use CorelDRAW Graphic Suite.
To read more about the Conference and how attend, go directly to the CorelDRAW Unleashed User Conference website, click here >>
And not only that, I saw that he have put together a team of real power users of CorelDRAW Graphic Suite. To read more about them click here >>
Im impressed by the people Foster have put together to make this a great event.
If you have no plans for the summer of 2008, and feel to go traveling to the USA, then head to Phoenix, Arizona, the Grand Canyon state, and be part of his CorelDRAW Unleashed User Conference 2008. Its held the 9-12 July, 2008.
I will personally not have the time to go, but if I had the time, I would. I have personally made three trips to Arizona and think its a great state with a lot to offer. So if you would like to spend more days, before and or after the conference, in Arizona, then head off to Sedona, red rock country. Jerome, Flagstaff, Petrified forest, Monument Valley and much more.
Since 1993, Unleashed Productions has been producing CorelDRAW training to users from all over. Its in the hottets time of the year, so its going to be HOT temperatures. For Europeans, its so hot you will have to go to south of Spain or Italy to know how hot it is. We talk about + 30-40 celsius. But this also means that the hotels are giving great discounts. Which, when I read the Unleashed website, Fosters conference is taking advantage of. On the Unleashed website they have a great resort to stay at, four-diamond Arizona Grand Resort, with discount as a CorelDRAW Unleashed User Conference attendee. Conference rate is $139.
A great place to stay, to say the least, but if you still would like to stay for a smaller amount, then I can recomend another hotel. I checked in february for July prices, and it was half the fee, $63 per night, total stay $189. Its the La Quinta Inn, Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport, close to the airport, with hotel shuttle taking you back and forth the airport. Its a nice hotel, with Fry´s food stores, which is open really late at night, and a nice little Starbucks close to the hotel. Starbucks is in the street corner in the direction of and after the Fry´s food store and parking lot. There is also a lot of other places to eat at in that area. (44th St. & Thomas, Phoenix

Rent a car while in Phoenix, thats my other suggestion, or a taxi cab. Its an enormously big town, its HUGE! and you just have to have a car or go by Taxi Cabs. There are several taxi company´s, and the cheapest one, and quite good actually, is the Sunrise Cabs. Older cars, but really good. I have used them myself, it was good. Go and have fun in Phoenix, Arizona and learn CorelDRAW!
I have personally met Foster and he is really a very nice person, so you will have fun!
Personally I think this seem to be such a good conference to learn CorelDRAW Graphic Suite that I have put an add up for free on my blog, connected to my website. And I useally dont put adds on my website.
