It’s less than two weeks until we take the wraps off Synergy Barcelona, so if you haven’t already registered, you’d better be quick!

The foundations of Synergy are built around a simple mantra – Inspire, Learn, Network. Nowhere will this be truer than in our keynote and Super Sessions, which will offer you unparalleled insight into the future of virtual computing and the cloud.

Citrix President and CEO Mark Templeton will open Synergy by further expanding on his cloud era vision. Mark is an inspiring speaker and combined with a host of sneak-peaks at new products and live demonstrations of Citrix latest innovations, his opening keynote will undoubtedly prove to be a true highlight. Mark will be onstage at 10.30AM CET sharp on Wednesday October 26, so make sure that you get there early because you know it’s going to be popular!

On Thursday at 9:00AM CET, our hotly-anticipated Super Sessions are back and hosted by three Citrix CTOs. Bernd Christiansen, Sheng Liang and Martin Duursma will take to the stage to discuss the future technology landscape, with a particular focus on cloud, mobility and collaboration. They’ll dispel hype, reveal a major leap forward in Citrix technology and show you how and why mobility is the theme of 2012 and beyond.

Once you’ve found your inspiration you’ll need to know how to put it in action! We’ll be featuring a host of learning sessions offering everything from technical training to best practices and success stories across virtualization, cloud computing and networking. It’s all about extracting maximum value from your organization’s IT systems, so make sure you attend as many as possible!

This year also offers a step-by-step guide to bringing desktop virtualization to your company in our five-part Desktop Transformation session series – but why not experience our virtual desktop technology in action too? The Powered by Citrix Desktop Transformation Center will make its debut at Synergy Barcelona.  With the support of key alliance partners– Dell, Cisco, McAfee, Microsoft, NetApp and Splunk – the Desktop Transformation Center will deliver virtual desktops to several major conference activities, including Registration, the Internet Access Center and the BYO Experience.

Finally, the ever-popular hands on Learning Labs will give you firsthand access to Citrix experts to take you through the entire Citrix family from the latest versions of XenDesktop, NetScaler, XenServer, and much, much more.

Sharing ideas is what drives innovation in our industry so Synergy Barcelona sees the return of Geek Speak Live! and the Tuesday night welcome reception to kick off the networking. The one we’re really looking forward to, though, is the Synergy Party, and where better to party than Barcelona? On Wednesday night we’ll be heading down to the elegant Barceloneta Beach to experience the food, music and atmosphere with contacts old and new at five of the city’s best clubs.

Next week, I’ll have some exciting news to share about our Innovation Award finalists, but in the meantime, come join us at Synergy Barcelona to find your inspiration, learn how to put it in action, and tell everyone about it! It’s not too late to register – click here!
