Session Format

This conference was a resounding success by sustaining the interaction, voice and experience of being in the event placing attendees among peers and trusted community leaders. Our session minimized reliance upon full-session-length Powerpoint slide shows that define a “look and pace” for a typical conference. Our choice was for dialog, a conversation among panel members and spilling out into the audience.

We chose a single track session format of Group Discussion, Panel Debates, and Expert Drill-Down in a manner of a live-demo or spotlight in leadership or a solution case study followed with Q&A. The Disaster Recovery workshops provided insight and discussion upon specific applications and technology concerns.
