VeeamON 2017 is less than a year away, taking place in New Orleans, May 16 through 18 2017. This is the third VeeamON conference and it looks to be the must-attend Availability event of the year. If you want to be part of the conversation and the future of Availability, you will want to mark your calendar and plan on being there. Need help convincing your boss to let you attend? Then keep reading because I have many reasons why you need to be in New Orleans next May, and it’s not just for the jazz and crawfish!

The timing for this event couldn't be better. With so many exciting things happening in the industry and for Veeam itself, there will be no shortage of content. From the latest trends and newest products in Availability, to the best practices of some of the 11.8 million VMs protected by Veeam, to tips and tricks from the leaders in the industry, you may have a hard time selecting what sessions to attend. All with the goal of enabling enterprises to operate 24.7.365.

VeeamON is THE place to be for experiencing Availability and interacting with renowned industry thought leaders. You'll meet IT experts, decision makers and virtualization gurus from all around the world, with whom you can exchange opinions and business cards. The Expo Lounge will line up world class industry players like Cisco, HPE, Microsoft, NetApp and VMware, providing a great opportunity for you to discover their latest innovations and see how they contribute to the Availability of modern data centers. You also won’t want to miss all the live demos happening, in sponsored booths and on-stage in the Expo Lounge.

Plan on spending time in our Hands-On Labs. There you’ll have the chance to deep dive into Veeam's data protection solutions and find out more about our future plans and releases. You’ll also be able to ask the experts any of the burning questions you may have around specific issues you are facing.

On the educational side, VeeamON is a great place to become a Veeam Certified Engineer (VMCE).  Not only is the training offered at substantially lower rates, but it’s being offered at two levels, allowing participants a more personal experience. The trainings will occur before the event kickoff, so you can be fully focused on learning. Moreover, there will be over 85 breakout sessions from which you can choose to get in-depth information on your areas of interest and explore newest industry trends.

Also, if you’re confident in what you know about Veeam, you must accept the challenge of the LabWarz competition! It will test your knowledge on Veeam’s solutions with some challenging scenarios and, if you’re one of the top finishers, you can win some really cool prizes. There is more than $25,000 up for grabs, including a $10,000 grand prize.

After two full days of discovering new ways to enhance Availability for your company and engaging with thought leaders to discuss innovative new concepts, VeeamON concludes with the industry’s most unforgettable party! There is no better way to unwind after such a packed agenda than to gather 3,000 of your new contacts in one place and dance the last night away.

As you can see, there are plenty of reasons for you to attend VeeamON 2017, but does your boss feel the same way? You might have scheduled the one-on-one meeting to pitch the idea, but let us give you a hand to lay the groundwork for that discussion. We drafted a letter and, whether you’re a partner or an end user, it will support your motivation for making the trip.
