Until recently, the opportunity to have a celebrity attend an event, attach themselves to a name-brand or endorse a certain product or idea was untouchable. The thought of paying a person to promote a product was seen as something only Fortune 500 companies could afford. Social media has changed all that with brands and businesses utilizing celebrity influencers to connect directly with their demographics and increase sales and profits.
14th Cloud Expo
At every Cloud Expo,there is a selection of technical and strategic breakout sessions, General Sessions, Industry Keynotes, "Power Panels" and an Expo floor complete with two busy Demo Theaters so that delegates can kick the tires of solutions and offerings, and discuss one-on-one with all the leading Cloud and Big Data players what they are offering and how to make use of it.
Just as Cloud and Big Data solutions will be side by side on the Expo floor, so they are in the conference program. The breakout sessions will be organized by topics like SDN, DevOps and Cloud Standards.
