We’re now only a couple weeks away from one of the biggest enterprise mobility conferences of the year, Citrix Synergy 2014. If you’ve attended Citrix Synergy before, you’re probably aware of the number of informative sessions (fun prizes and special guest performances) that await you once those Anaheim Convention Center doors open. This year we decided to add something exciting that you Synergy veterans (and newcomers) will be sure to enjoy: The Real World Pavilion in XenCity.

What is the Real World Pavilion? No, this isn’t Citrix’s way of paying homage to a certain ‘90s reality TV show. The Real World Pavilion showcases the value of Citrix mobile workspaces in actual work scenarios.

Interested? Here are the top 3 reasons to stop by the Real World Pavilion.

1. Get a “day in the life demo” of Citrix mobile workspaces across three important vertical industries.

Although Citrix technologies have helped a number of organizations across various industries achieve higher productivity, easier collaboration and improved responsiveness, each vertical sector has specific reasons for adopting mobile workspaces. At the Real World Pavilion, you will have a chance to view a “day in the life” mobility demo in three high growth industries: healthcare, financial services/banking and education.

Learn how healthcare providers use Citrix mobile workspaces to move seamlessly from patient rooms to hospital corridors to home offices with ongoing access to critical medical apps and data. Discover how students gain the flexibility to study, research and access education tools from their choice of device in any location – whether it’s in a dorm room, computer lab or on a campus bench. Find out how financial organizations are embracing mobile workspaces to enable flexibility for employees to engage with customers from the office, the subway and from home, all without compromising security or compliance.

2. Engage with industry experts.

When implementing a mobility strategy, you want to make sure you have all your ducks in a row and may have some questions on an ongoing project. You may also be curious on the various ways Citrix customers within specific verticals have deployed our solutions and the benefits that were achieved.

At the Real World Pavilion, you will be able to engage with industry experts and Citrix Sales Engineers with real world experience on Citrix deployments in healthcare, finance and education.  Attendees will have the ability to schedule 1:1 meetings to discuss industry hot topics, real-world strategies and implementations.

3. Hear from business and IT leaders

When faced with difficult business and technology challenges, the amount of information and resources to sift through can be overwhelming.  In addition to our “day in the life” demo and the ability to engage with Citrix industry experts, we are also bringing together IT and business leaders from different industries to share their real-life experiences and best practices to help you solve these strategic challenges.

Engage with innovative leaders from organizations such as Seattle Children’s Hospital, Kindred Healthcare, University of South Florida, to name a few, to discuss their approaches and answer your questions in an informal, fireside chat setting outside of the Real World Pavilion in XenCity. The Citrix Fireside Chats are a scheduled set of intimate, 20 minute Q&A sessions. These are invaluable opportunities to be able to engage in discussions with your peers about real-world philosophies, strategies, challenges and the best practices.

So stop by the Real World Pavilion to be sure to take advantage of this new and unique offering (and a chance to win some prizes) at this year’s Citrix Synergy.
