Registration is now open for Citrix Synergy 2015, Orlando May 12–14. If you’re thinking that sounds early, you’re right: in response to customer demand to open registration before the new fiscal year, we’ve opened early. We’ve also added some amazing promotional rates, including an End of Year White Sale for customers—at $700 off, it’s the lowest rate we’ve ever offered for Synergy. Citrix partners can also benefit from the promotion, and enjoy an additional 20% discount if they also register for our Citrix Summit 2015 partner event in January.

The biggest news around Synergy is the increased focus on industry solutions including Financial Services, Healthcare, Manufacturing, and Government. Dedicated peer networking events, sessions, demos, and real-world environments showcase how the software-defined workplace is revolutionizing security and how people work better.

Industry focus

The centerpiece is the Citrix Real World Pavilion, a walkthrough showcase highlighting the impact that a people and business-centric approach to mobile workspaces has on data security and workforce productivity. Each area in the Pavilion creates a realistic, hands-on environment demonstrating how Citrix and partner technologies are used to transform the outcomes of different job functions, physical office facilities and IT service delivery. Industry experts from Citrix–Nexenta, IGEL Technology, NVIDIA–as well thousands of enterprises and system integrators will be sharing industry best practices and ideas for new workstyles.

Synergy highlights

The Synergy agenda is packed with highlights too numerous to cover in one blog post, but these merit special mention:

  • Instructor-led Learning Labs, always a big draw at Synergy, are now a pre-event workshop on Sunday and Monday, giving you the opportunity to dive deep into the technology—and network with other attendees at the Learning Lab Happy Hour on Sunday night—without overlap with the main conference.
  • The Citrix Booth Experience is definitely an experience, an entirely new way to engage with Citrix in a VIP environment. Don’t miss the BYOD wireless demo that will deliver a Citrix desktop to your personal device. It’s really remarkable.
  • The Solutions Demo Sandbox is a playground for hands-on evaluation of new technologies with Citrix engineers ready to answer questions and offer guidance.

I’m looking forward to seeing everyone in Orlando next May at the only business and technology conference focused on the software-defined workplace. If you’re bringing family along, the timing couldn’t be better as they’ll be able to enjoy all of the Orlando theme parks before peak season begins. If you don’t get a chance to visit any of them yourself, don’t worry as our Final Night Party will be at Universal Studios Florida.

Register now and take advantage of these great early registration promotions for Synergy 2015.
