RIM has waived the registration fee for its regional "BlackBerry Innovation Forums," to be held in NA cities in February/March.

BlackBerry-maker Research In Motion (RIM) is holding a series of “BlackBerry Innovation Forum” events during the months of February and March for “technology managers, BlackBerry enterprise administrators, and mobility architects.”

And for a limited time, interested parties can attend the BlackBerry Innovation Forums in their area for free; RIM has decided to waive the $150 registration fee.

From RIM:

“The BlackBerry Innovation Forums bring BlackBerry experts, wireless operators, wireless architects and BlackBerry users to locations across North America. Join us for a day-long seminar filled with people that are able to answer your questions about new BlackBerry Products, services, developing, deploying and managing BlackBerry Enterprise Solution.”

“The BlackBerry Innovation Forums are a must-attend event for anyone who manages, develops, and architects the BlackBerry Enterprise Server and anyone who is a decision maker in the technical arm of your organization.”

And the events are to be held New York, Chicago, Washington D.C., Atlanta, Boston, Toronto and Dallas throughout February, with one final forum in early March in San Francisco.

BlackBerry administrator I am not, but I may try to attend the event in Boston on February 17, since the content does seem interesting.
