Cloud computing flowchart with businessmanYes! We are finally crossing the pond!

After two extremely successful events in Europe (London and Amsterdam), we have decided to export the TECHunplugged conference in the US. This is made possible thanks to our friends at Tech Field Day and we are very excited about it.

The idea is to build the same kind of community-based 1-day conference where influencers, end users and some selected sponsors talk about the future of IT, share their experience and get involved in various networking moments.

Same formula, more value

The summer sun sets on Austin, TX on a humid August evening.

“Austin Evening” by User:Argash.

The formula of TECHunplugged is simple but we added some more content, hence value, for Austin!

TECHunplugged is an extremely interactive event, focusing on end users. We want to give them the opportunity to actively participate in the event. For that reason, most of the material presented is from independent sources and end users play a major role by sharing their points of view, experiences and opinions.

A day packed with content:
– 10 influencers from Europe and US hosting independent sessions
– 3 open panels and Q&A sessions
– 10 sponsors
– 2 break-out sessions in the afternoon
– Various networking moments throughout the day

You will have the opportunity to meet up with many end users, industry influencers and other IT professionals to learn, discuss and comment on the evolution of modern IT.

Influencers and Agenda

The Theme for the 2016 TECHunplugged Conferences will be “Beyond traditional IT” and the focus will be entirely on new and disruptive technologies, and how they can be adopted in the real world.

We are working on the agenda at the moment but the line-up of influencers that have already accepted our invitation is awesome, covering the hottest topics of IT industry: Storage, cloud native, SDN, Object storage, hyperconvergence, SDDC and more!

We are also working on a weekly newsletter to get you up to speed with all the news coming from our influencer community and the latest updates from the TECHunplugged conference.

The value of our sponsors

Sponsors are an important element for TECHunplugged because they allow free access to educational material and useful information for the attendees.

We are selecting the right sponsors to bring even more value to the event. In fact, our goal is to put them in the position to talk more about their technology and vision instead of the competitive landscape, while making the sessions as interactive as possibile.

Double feature !!!
