6 Reasons Why You Have to Attend HP Discover 2012

HP Discover 2012 is a must-attend event for HP ExpertOne certified professionals looking to get their hands on the latest gear, talk to the experts and meet industry peers. Every year, HP brings together the best and brightest minds along with the latest in technology.

 

Here's an excellent teaser video from last year's event.

 

  

New Technology

From the solutions on the Expo floor to the NDA sessions, you will leave HP Discover with a brain full of new ideas. I’m sure your customers are waiting to hear what new, energy-efficient technology or solution you think is perfect for their business.

Here’s a quick list of topics that will be covered during keynotes, breakouts, demos and on the Expo floor:

-         Converged Cloud

-         Information Optimisation

-         Security and Risk Management

-         Application Transformation

-         Converged Infrastructure

-         Mobility

-         Virtualization

-         Printing and Personal Systems

-         Software

There is something here for everyone (I’m having a hard time scheduling all the sessions I want to attend!)

Access to the Experts

HP Discover is a one stop shop to ask questions from subject matter experts about the latest technology (hardware or software). They will fill the Expo floor, eager to answer your questions.

You will also find experts in the HP ExpertOne lounge. The ExpertOne lounge is a common destination at HP Discover for certified professionals. Special user group meetings and forums will be held in the community lounge, giving you the opportunity to interact and ask questions. I know from personal experience, this is an opportunity I will not miss!

 

Peer (community) Networking

The ExpertOne lounge is the place to be to network with industry peers. Along with your fellow certified professionals, you will find ExpertOne regional and world-wide managers who are there specifically to talk to you and get your feedback on the program, certifications and specific needs. Along with ExpertOne, the lounge will also have Connect and Vivit community representatives, bringing together a large gathering of industry peers to help you connect and build long lasting relationships.

Opportunities to connect don’t stop at the lounge. There are many activities (both planned and unplanned) outside of the lounge. This includes but isn’t limited to the evening activities, parties, casual conversation during meals and chatting before sessions. I’ve always walked away from HP Discover with a handful of business cards with careful notes written on the back.

 

“Meet the Experts”

This is your chance to chat with ExpertOne program & regional managers, global program directors and representatives from Connect and Vivit.

We are always looking for your feedback and the opportunity to talk face to face is worth its weight in gold (ok, maybe not gold, but how about silver?). Whether its certification, course or exam related or maybe you want to know what the plans and roadmap details are for your specific certification.

 

Social Events

Big or small, there’s a social event for you at HP Discover. From the main Discover party on Wednesday night (Dec 5) to the small get-togethers, there’s plenty of opportunities to meet new people and connect with old friends.
