If you couldn’t tell, I do almost everything technology related with Matt Brender and Luigi Danakos. People have dubbed us the 3 Musketeers and I think the name suites us well. I waited until now to talk about this because I am officially confirmed with flights, hotel, and passes to EMC World and Interop.
Our plan to get to EMC World started at the end of last year’s show. Both Matt and Luigi won a chance to be a part of the event. I however, being brand new to EMC, was not able to attend the show in Boston, but I did network at the after parties. Nevertheless, I still wanted to be a part of the fun and excitement next year. New York, Paris, or Milan, we had decided we were going to make our way to the show.
“You’re not pre sales or a customer, how did you get there?”. I’ve been asked this question more than once, and while the details are a bit classified, I can say this. The idea of sending us to EMC world has been talked around for several months now. Once we purchased our flights and hotel rooms, we ramped up our campaign. Well, we caught the attention of the right people who also agreed that we should be there and made it happen.
“So what are you going to do there?”. In short, everything I can. I plan to make multiple rounds of the show floor, checking out everything our departments and partners have to offer. I will also be a part of the bloggers lounge, observe some breakout sessions, and make my way to a few keynotes as well. Last year Luigi had a twitter shirt signing going on and if he’s going to do it again this year, I may join him. So look around for me on the show floor and make sure you say hello.
