Well, how nice: Check Point announced that there will be a training track the day before CPX 2013 in Barcelona.Attending this track gives you lot of knowledge an extends your current certification for one more year.But there’s a think that isn’t nice at all: the announcement of the training track was issued weeks AFTER the registration for CPX itself opened.

If someone registered early and booked all flights, hotel stay etc. along with the conference registration, it might not be possible to change this afterwards to match the time for training track.Guess what: this is exactly what happened to me.

My flight was booked long before training track was announced and it cannot be changed. I will miss this pre-conference event.

You guys at Check Point: Seriousley! Please think about your conference BEFORE you put details on your website and open registration, enabling everyone to have the opportunity to participate.
