Viva Las Vegas - Citrix Synergy is Go
Its that time of year again, when the heady excitement that you had putting in Call for Paper requests reaches its natural conclusion. First up...
Citrix Synergy is a premier industry conference on digital business transformation. Synergy provides attendees with the tools and confidence they need to say yes to workforce mobility, security and compliance, BYO, workplace redesign, hybrid cloud infrastructure—and whatever comes next. Citrix customers, partners and industry influencers from around the world come together at Synergy each year (and maybe one day, twice a year, with one in Europe) for strategic insights, business and technical training, and professional networking. Citrix Synergy, has host dozens of outside experts as guest speakers in some of our most popular breakout sessions.
Guest presenters are among the highlights of Synergy every year, representing a range of industries and some of the world’s largest IT companies. And one of those guest speakers is me :) Come to Vegas and hear me and my esteemed colleague Jim Moyle wax lyrical on how to Prevent Possible PVS Performance Pain Points, maybe come say hi at one of the many other great sessions from other excellent Citrix Synergy Guest Speakers as well as ruminate on the keynote, the Solutions Expo, the Learning Labs, the Meet the Geek Events or at the range of community events taking place. Or maybe even a small beer at a local bar.
While fellow Citrix User Group Community members are ever hopeful for a return of Synergy to Europe, I'd recommend making an effort to attend Synergy - it is great forum to connect and learn about Citrix technologies - or at least tune in the sessions that will be available on-line.
I'd suggest "can I go to Vegas for week" shouldn't be the sum total of your travel request form. Focus on the sessions, the free exams, the learning and knowledge sharing. To help minimise the expense, check out fellow CTP Neil Spellings' notes on Synergy Vegas on a Budget - an almost ironic wealth of information on keeping your valuable and effective trip cost efficient.
Look forward to seeing you there.
