It’s full. There are 150 people registered and the room will be packed to bursting. If you want to attend now you are going to have to speak especially nicely to the organisers.AOpen’s exclusive partner event next Monday in Amsterdam has received huge amounts of interest.
With 150 people registered (and seriously, there is space for a few more at a push) the event looks like it’s going to be double the size of DiSCO (held the same day) and all-in-all a truly great event.
Sponsors now include Intel, BlueFox, BroadSign, Net Display Systems, Philips and Vision Robotics.
The organisers are expecting a good proportion of the crowd to be System Integrators, but there’s also a nice 50 / 50 mix of Resellers and Distributors, a few AOpen Alliance Partners, 12 members of the esteemed Press and about 21 AOpen employees from around the world – no Boomer though 🙁
The agenda is as follows: –
- 10.30 – 11.00 Welcome and Registration
- 11.00 – 12.00 Opening Keynote. Bernie Tsai, President and CEO AOpen Inc. Bernie founded AOpen Inc. in 1996 and has been the visionary leader ever since.
