We've known for some months now that BlackBerry will not be hosting BlackBerry Live this year, but instead will be focusing on smaller events targeting specific enterprise customers.

Things kick off in America tomorrow (April 10th) in New York City where the BlackBerry executive team will hosting the first of these global events. 

We haven't had a great deal of notice on this one so if you're able to attend you had better register fast as I'm pretty sure the available places will be snapped up sharpish. 

*Update* It would appear that the first event was actually held yesterday in Paris, France.
