Only few days for the start of second EMEA Dell Storage Forum 2012, in Paris. I’m sure that this will be a very interesting event with several opportunities to attend to hands-on sessions, panel discussions, brainstorm sessions , etc..
One of the best parts of this type of event is the fact that Dell takes it quite seriously , yet quite informal, way since top executives , engineers are available to discuss ideas one on one . Nothing beats a vendor that actually listens first to the customer and moves into to the sales pitch after…
The second best part of this gathering is the outstanding amount of social media / networking / place your favorite expression here , events.
Here’s a glimpse into the planned events :
- November 14th , Wednesday, Fluid Forward Think Tank. Simon Robinson, Research Vice President of 451 Research will be moderating this forum . As usual this is way to discuss the trends , challenges, real-life expericences related to storage . If you can’t be in Paris, this event will have a live-streaming! . Twitter stream available with #FluidForward
- November 14th , Wednesday night ,#StorageBeers! Starting at 9:00pm, right after the Welcome Celebration, at Havane Café. Feel free to drop by to get in touch with some old friends and take the opportunity to make new ones !
