When signing up for a conference, the ultimate goal is to walk away with new insights and actionable information that will help you in your current role, while also developing new and lasting skills. Yet too often, conferences that can sound promising often turn into a sales pitch for the sponsor’s latest product. Of course, you want to learn about the new solutions available, but the focus should be on learning.
That’s why, following last year’s Acronis Global Cyber Summit, the feedback we received was so rewarding – it all revolved around the strength of the educational content: “It was a great event and not a giant sales pitch!”
After recently announcing that we’ll be returning to Miami, FL from October 19-21 for the Acronis Global Cyber Summit 2020, past attendees have been actively asking what the program will look like.
We’re happy to say that the schedule of breakout sessions that will help you get your organization #CyberFit has been set – and hotel reservations are now open.
Focused informational tracks
As with last year’s summit, the breakout sessions are designed so attendees can focus on their area of interest. There will be separate tracks for service providers and resellers, developers and ISVs, and enterprise edge professionals.
Tracks at Acronis Global Cyber Summit 2020 include:
- Modernize Your Strategies for Success in the Cloud Age – The IT channel is rapidly changing, responding to new realities such as the adoption of cloud, ever-evolving cyberthreats, everything-as-a-service, etc. To compete in this new landscape, service providers and resellers must deliver in-demand, high-margin cyber protection solutions. This track will show how they can easily expand their solution set while protecting customers from the latest cyberthreats.
- Transform Your Data Protection and Cybersecurity Operations – Enterprise IT pros need to modernize their data protection and storage infrastructure implementations in order to protect against modern threats while satisfying new regulatory and compliance obligations at the edge. This track will explore how organizations are moving forward without the baggage of the past by employing a more holistic approach to protection.
- Leverage Automation and Integration to Scale Your Business and Increase Profits – Within the Acronis Developer Network, service providers, OEMs, and ISVs are customizing, integrating, and extending their applications with cyber protection solutions. They can automate the delivery and management of IT operations with new integrations (or those available in the Acronis Cyber Cloud Solutions Portal). This track will show how teams can be more efficient, or earn more, with native integrations.
- Discover B2B Sales and Marketing Techniques That Build Your Brand, Margins, and Customer Base – Marketing in the channel has evolved as technologies and tactics adapt to the habits and preferences of modern buyers. This track offers the chance to learn from experts who will offer real-world insights into what marketing approaches are working – and why. From event marketing to lead generation to branding and sales to marketing operations – this is the chance for service providers, resellers, and marketing professionals to get the latest information needed to win new business.
Reserve your room
If you are traveling to join these great sessions, you’ll need a place to stay. Once again, the Acronis Global Cyber Summit will be held at the Fontainebleu Resort and Hotel in Miami Beach, which makes it the most convenient and comfortable overnight option for attendees too. Room registrations for the conference have just opened. If you’re planning to attend, look for the room reservation link on the conference registration page.
Space for sponsors
Even though a conference is focused on being truly informational, that doesn’t mean attendees don’t want to hear about different solutions. On the contrary, they want to explore the latest technologies, making the Acronis Global Cyber Summit the ideal venue for sponsors. At least that’s what several of last year’s sponsors reported:
James Murphy, Vice President of Global Sales for DevTech said, “The Acronis Global Cyber Summit was among the best shows we sponsored in 2019. The location, content, and attendees were exactly what you look for in a successful summit. The opportunities to network and build relationships were exceptional. We will be back in 2020!”
We hope you’ll join him – and us – in Miami.
