Fresh Thinking on IT Operations for 100,000 Industry Executives

Dear Colleague,

I thought that you might be interested in a networking event being run in London in parallel with IP Expo on the 19th and 20th of October 2011.

What is ExecEvent?

ExecEvent is a highly successful global event run by Greg Duplessie, brother of Steve Duplessie of ESG fame. The ExecEvent is an exclusive networking event for virtualization, cloud, storage and security industry executives. Plus those folks that want to interact with these executives (service providers, recruiters, technology law/tax firms, etc.) It is different than any other networking event you’ve ever been to. Our mission is to create a compelling event for industry insiders—one that focuses on networking and building relationships and does not require exhibiting or catering to end-users. This unique networking event will provide educational speaking topics and a spotlight for emerging products or companies (where appropriate), as well as plenty of time for your own meetings as you see fit.

When and Where?

Our next event is called the ExecEvent London 2011. It is scheduled for October 19-20th at the Earls Court Conference Centre in London. With a pre-event cocktail reception the evening of October 18th. We are working with IP EXPO, and the conference centre is a very short walk from their exhibition hall. The ExecEvent is specifically for senior executives in the virtualization, cloud, storage and data center space, as well as for press, analysts, consultants and financial professionals.

Why Should I Attend?

If you want end-users, then IP EXPO is the perfect forum and show. But what about your business partners, resellers, OEMs, VCs and investment bankers, consultants, etc. ? These shows are too crazy to focus on the business behind your business. That’s where the ExecEvent comes in. We bring together industry executives in very meaningful way.

If you make one or two solid connections at this event, it is worth your time and effort. “If you are a vendor in the cloud, virtualization or storage space and you are not here (at an ExecEvent), slap yourself and get signed up for the next one.” So says George Crump, Senior Analyst for Storage Switzerland

“I think it’s a great idea to separate business development and networking events like this with other events geared towards end-users and outbound marketing. With this event we can have the right people in the right meetings, without having to bring the whole company. Focus is key.” – Ed Walsh, former CEO of Storwize, Avamar and Virtual Iron, now an executive at IBM

How Much Does It Cost To Register?

The registration fee is £375 GBP. No VAT required.
