I am very happy to announce an updated agenda for VeeamON 2017. With the event just on the horizon, we are able to share some of the activities at our conference and get you familiar with the schedule and venues, so you will not miss a thing. In less than four months, you’ll find yourself in New Orleans, Louisiana, which is why I’d like to offer you some highlights of the event.

For those of you who have registered for the Veeam Certified Engineer (VMCE) training, the conference will start two days earlier: partner training on May 14 — 15 and end-user training on May 15 — 16, which both take place at Sheraton New Orleans. If you are already a VMCE, this is a great opportunity to become a VMCE-Advanced: Design & Optimization v1 (VMCE-ADO). Every VMCE training participant will be able to take the VMCE exam on site at the event in simulated labs or at a later date at no extra charge.

Tuesday, May 16 is the last day of VMCE training sessions and it's also Partner Day, which includes many sessions entirely focused on partners: general session, Hands-On Lab and breakout sessions. The day concludes with the long-awaited VeeamON Welcome Reception, held at the New Orleans Morial Convention Center from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Wednesday, May 17 and Thursday, May 18 are the main days of the conference, taking place at the New Orleans Morial Convention Center. There are plenty of activities that will keep your agenda full. At the Hands-On Lab, you'll meet Veeam experts and learn about our future releases — including Veeam Availability Suite v10 and the Veeam Availability Orchestrator!

The Expo Lounge, one of my favorites, is where big players gather, such as Cisco, HPE, Microsoft and NetApp, to showcase their innovative and fresh solutions for the Modern Data Center. And, of course, don't hesitate to challenge your IT fellows at the LabWarz competition — prizes worth $25,000 are at stake!

On Wednesday, you can also look forward to the Rafflethon in the Expo Lounge, where you can win cool prizes from the exhibitors. On Wednesday evening, we invite you to take a stroll through the New Orleans Arts District and visit the premier party zone. Here, each of our premier partners will be hosting a party venue along Fulton Street. Food, drinks, music and fun are on the agenda for the evening.

On Thursday, after a great general session and insightful breakouts, the conference will conclude with the classic VeeamON party at Generations Hall. If you have never been to a VeeamON wrap-up party, this is something you don’t want to miss.

To make things easier, you can also download the agenda file and add it to your personal calendar.
