Growing your skills is always a smart career move. There are many effective ways to do this … attend a class, join a user group, follow an expert’s blog. IBM Technical Events and Conferences transform these training methods into multi-day forums for building skills, gaining technology insights and expanding your network of contacts. These annual events offer:
Can you keep a secret?
Many events include sessions that require you to sign a non-disclosure agreement. This means you’re getting early, pre-release product information. Knowing what’s in IBM’s product plans can help you better manage your IT infrastructure with smarter scheduling of upgrades and new installations.
Play in our sandbox
It’s hard to top the learning value of rolling up your sleeves and working with a new product or technology. IBM Technical Events offer many hands-on demos, labs and workshops. Product experts are always on hand to guide you and answer your questions. You can also learn from your peers as you share war stories and IT challenges.
Expand your network of professional contacts
If you’re a member of a user group or professional association, you know how these organizations are an effective channel for building your personal career network. IBM Technical Events and Conferences offer both formal and informal venues for meeting fellow IT enthusiasts, IBM product developers, IBM executives and industry experts.
Repeat attendance attests to value
It is said that people vote with their dollars. If a product or service does not deliver value, they will spend their money elsewhere. IBM Technical Events have a loyal following. Thousands of clients attend every year to update their skills, explore the latest industry trends and discuss solutions with IBM Business Partners and product developers.
Save big with special pricing offers
As a savvy consumer, you know the feeling of satisfaction that comes from knowing you got a deal and didn’t pay full-price. Get that same “feel good feeling” with your tuition for IBM Technical Events. Special pricing offers include early-bird savings, volume discounts and reduced rates for user groups.
