The IAITAM Annual Conference and Exhibition kicks off this week at the Aria Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.
(What I’m Looking forward to seeing)
I recently corresponded with IAITAM President Barb Rembiesa to find out what to expect at the show this year.
ITAM Professionals attend our conference for education, networking and the possibility to see cutting-edge technology offerings for the IT Asset Management community. The majority of our attendees are either senior management or ITAM practitioners attempting to raise their ITAM knowledge to the next level by learning how others are solving similar problems in their own enterprises and with what products.
End users present for numerous reasons – The first is IAITAM has cultivated a knowledge share community over the last 10 years that celebrate the successes of each professional. The conference provides the end users the opportunity to not only share their knowledge but also gain knowledge through the questions and networking in their sessions.
The IAITAM 2011 Ace event is by far the largest and most extensive topic range for the ITAM profession in the world. With over 600 attendees, 60+ sessions, 90 top experts in the industry the knowledge that the attendees will walk away with will bring value to any organization.
The trends this year and the goal of the conference are to bring value back to the organizations. Financial savings in many forms seem to be the driving force for attendees. The attendees will be looking for new ideas and solutions to maximize return on investments.
