In addition, ThinkCentre M55 desktops along with live action screens will be set up in a demonstration room (a new service available to delegates this year) where delegates can learn about new software and electronic tools through hands-on training and demonstrations.
"We are delighted with this partnership and are excited about having the opportunity to showcase our best engineered PCs to municipal and provincial government leaders from communities across Ontario," says Janice Dawes, Lenovo Canada's Marketing and Strategy Executive.

"We are pleased to have Lenovo as the official PC supplier to the AMO Conference."
During the conference one lucky delegate will win a thin and light Lenovo ThinkPad T61 - perfect for highly mobile users who work in an office or on the road.
