You can now register for the OSM Plus Conference which will happen in San Francisco on June 10th, 2013. Steve Coast has been talking about getting a professional OSM conference going and it’s great to see that it is finally going to happen. Professional OSM you say?

OSM PLUS is new and focused on professional users of OSM data and toolchains commercially, academically, in government and elsewhere. It is a paid-for event and we expect it to be more of a conversation than a traditional presentation. Many professional users have similar concerns and expectations for OSM. We want to explore these in an environment focused on coming up with solutions.

If your business uses OSM or you consult on it, you totally should be registering for this conference. Where else are you going to interact with people who are not only using OSM data, but building companies around it. So right after SOTM US, stick around for OSM Plus. I’ve already registered.
