SNW – Helping Users Keep Apace of Change

Today’s IT managers and practitioners need ever-more cost-efficient, reliable and robust solutions to manage increasing stores of data residing in numerous locations, including the cloud. That’s where SNW comes in. With more than 150 speakers in 130 sessions, our conference brings together end user case studies, industry experts, SNIA technical tutorials and more for four days of intensive education across the most important IT infrastructure disciplines. A strategic partnership between Computerworld and the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA), SNW is known across the industry for its compelling agenda filled with practical advice, hands-on learning and insights into emerging trends,technologies, products and solutions.

A key component of the SNW experience is the Expo, where attendees meet vendor companies showcasing cutting-edge
products and solutions. A Hands-On Lab, organized in association with SNIA, complements the Expo, offering demonstrations and labs and featuring multi-vendor solutions in a vendor-agnostic environment. Both are not to be missed.

Sponsorships are designed specifically to give your company brand visibility as well as the opportunity to meet and network with the numerous decision-makers at this industry-leading event.
