Dell World, the Unconference?

This one's different. Think intimate and high touch.

On a call yesterday, I asked an IT manager from a well-known New York technology company if he planned to attend Dell World. He answered, "love Austin, cool town, but I'm burned out on those huge events. Even when they have a great keynote, there’s no opportunity to engage."

I said, "Wow, that’s so not what Dell World is about. Technology leaders from around the world told us they want a place where they can have two-way conversations about helping customers solve problems. That's what this event is all about.”

Dell World invites everyone to participate. Think of it as a three-day, full immersion into the most pressing IT issues of the day. We’ll cover everything from data center efficiency to information security and workplace flexibility ― and venture into visions for tomorrow.

Unlike some more traditionally passive conferences, Dell World will take a much more collaborative approach, offering:

  • An Idea Exchange session where you collaborate with industry experts and your peers to learn about new opportunities in IT efficiency and share best practices
  • The opportunity to brainstorm about your toughest challenges and immerse in hands-on technology exploration
  • The chance to participate in a whole new level of social engagement before, during and after the event – both online and in person
  • A glimpse into some of today’s best technology solutions that helping organization become more efficient.

Oh yeah, and unprecedented access to some of the brightest minds in business. The keynote speaker line up is a tech geek’s (like me) dream come true ― it includes Dell CEO Michael Dell, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, Chairman and CEO Marc Benioff, VMware CEO Paul Maritz, and Intel President and CEO Paul Otellini.

You can join us under the “big tent” at Dell World: Unlocking Innovation in the Virtual Era on October 12-14 at the Austin Convention Center to learn best practices in IT efficiency, gain competitor insights, make key industry contacts, and build customer relationships.
