New at Synergy 2015: Industry programs designed just for you.

Citrix Synergy 2015 has a new industry focus, highlighting how mobility is transforming the workplace in industries including healthcare, education, financial services, and government—enabling people to work better from anywhere. Technology is important to us all, but technology in a hospital looks very different than it does in a school, which will also look different than in a bank. This year we’ve designed immersive industry programs to ensure you get the greatest value from your time at Citrix Synergy.

Citrix Real World Pavilion

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

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 coffee shop. Find out how financial organizations are embracing mobile workspaces to enable flexibility for employees to engage with customers from the office, to the trading floor to the branch office of the future, all without compromising security or compliance.

Fireside Chats

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 in the Citrix Real World Pavilion, 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 Kindred Healthcare, University of Florida and Allianz Insurance, to name a few, to discuss their approaches and answer your questions in an informal, fireside chat setting outside of the Citrix Real World Pavilion in the Citrix Booth Experience. Fireside Chats are a scheduled set of intimate, 20 minute Q&A sessions. These are invaluable opportunities to engage in discussions with your peers about real-world business strategies, challenges and best practices.

Birds of a Feather

Formally the Customer Reference Breakfast Forum, Birds of a Feather is a customer-only event where you can feel free to share your true successes and challenges, without press or video in the room. Join us for interactive, moderated roundtable discussions for each industry, featuring customers in education, financial services, healthcare and government talking about their experiences with Citrix solutions. In these high-level business discussions, panelists will discuss real-world best practices and how they’re leveraging mobility, virtualization, networking and cloud solutions to gain the agility they need to succeed in today’s changing business landscape. Following the discussion, we’ll open up for Q&A so you can ask your own questions and receive real, unfiltered answers from your peers.

Networking Reception

After the Birds of a Feather panel, continue the conversation at our industry-specific networking reception, hosted by industry experts. Grab a drink and network with your peers, industry experts and Citrix leadership.

Lunch Table Tech Chats

We’re doing lunch with a tech twist at Synergy: use your lunch break to expand your professional network and gain new knowledge about hot tech topics. At the Solutions Expo on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, May 12-14, you can join informal discussions led by volunteer Citrix User Group members and Citrix Technology Professionals.

Each of the Tech Chat tables will have a sign indicating the topic of discussion. Tables are arranged by technology solution—mobility, virtualization, networking and cloud—plus an open, anything-goes category called Speak Your Geek. Tech Chats will also feature industry-specific tables with discussions exclusively for attendees in healthcare, education, financial services and government. Pick up your lunch, choose a table and add your viewpoint to the discussion!

Citrix Synergy is just around the corner, but it isn’t too late to register. Sign up today!
