Join the Rocket team at IBM Edge 2016!

Rocket at IBM Edge 2016

Summer vacation season is coming to a close, and IBM Edge 2016 is just a few weeks away. We’re excited to be the Marquee Sponsor for this event once again, and the Rocket team has a lot going on in and around the MGM Grand while Edge is taking place. If you (or members of your team) are planning to attend, here are a few places you’ll find us:

In the expo hall

We’ll be set up at booth #400. Stop by, say hello, and register to win a guitar that we’ll be giving away Tuesday night.

Meet up with the Rocket executive team over drinks

We’re hosting a pair of meet-ups on Monday evening from 5-7 pm. The first is focused on IBM Power Systems (Emeril’s New Orleans Fish House), and the second on IBM z Systems (Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill). In addition to enjoying great food and drinks, you’ll have a chance to talk shop with other IT pros (along with members of our Rocket executive team) in an informal setting. Space is limited, so be sure to RSVP in advance!

Party with The Rocket Band

When the Train concert ends at 9:30 Tuesday night, find your way back outside where CEO Andy Youniss and other members of the Rocket team will be playing a pool-side encore set. Come sing along, and be sure to say hello. And don’t forget–if you registered to win the guitar at the booth, this is where you have to be to find out if you won.

Check out a breakout session (or five)

IBM Edge isn’t just about having fun–it’s also about learning new things you can use when you get back to the office. On Wednesday and Thursday, you have a chance to attend five separate breakout sessions led by Rocketeers, covering topics ranging from AIX security and compliance to hybrid cloud infrastructure.

We’re looking forward to seeing everyone!
