Citrix Synergy 2020

Citrix Synergy has long been an important event for our company. Among other things, it is a unique opportunity for Citrix team members to share with our partners and customers the many ways we are transforming the way people work.

This year, our enthusiasm leading up to Synergy has been understandably tempered by concerns related to the global outbreak of COVID-19 (coronavirus). Above all, the health of our employees, customers, partners, and community is paramount. We have been closely monitoring developments related to this situation, and following guidance from the CDC, WHO, and other health authorities around the world.

Out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to postpone Citrix Synergy Digital to a virtual program to be held in the fall timeframe. We will determine exact program dates and format to best suit the evolving global situation.

In the interim, we will focus on helping our customers with their immediate concerns. Beginning in April, we will launch Remote Works: a Citrix Virtual Series to provide a forum featuring Citrix subject matter experts (SMEs), customers, partners, and industry experts sharing a wide range of best practices for remote working and business continuity. Topics covered in the online series will include remote work technology, security, employee management, personal productivity, as well as insights into how to evolve for future based on the experiences of this crisis.

We will deliver this series through many different platforms, choosing what is best suited for the topic and audience, ranging from webinars, teleconferences, and podcasts to social media programs like Twitter Chats, Facebook Live, and LinkedIn Live. Already in the lineup:

  • Andrew Hewitt, a leading infrastructure, operations and employee experience analyst with Forrester Research;
  • Brian Solis, award-winning author, futurist, and globally renowned expert on both customer and employee experience;
  • Citrix CIO Meera Rajavel and Chief People Officer Donna Kimmel; and,
  • multiple customers from different industries and geographic locations.

We are excited about the new series, and look forward to joining the remote work discussion with you. Watch and the Citrix Blog site in the coming days for a full agenda and more details.
