For this festival, we will be taking over IBM Expert TV. Subscribe to IBM Expert TV and gather with our IBM Community of over 250,000 IBM users that brings together a global network of the world’s foremost technologists. This five-day festival will have days dedicated to user groups, the IBM Loyalty program, IBM experts, and our Cloud Without Compromise program with an opening keynote presentation by Rob Thomas, Senior Vice President of IBM Global Markets. We couldn’t be more excited to bring you the very best that the IBM Community has to offer.
Join us live in three different geographies
This isn’t your normal festival. What makes it different? We've arranged our festival so that it will be live in three different regions. You won't be watching recordings from Los Angeles, Tokyo or Sydney; you'll be participating along with everyone else no matter where you are. We are experts together everywhere. Subscribe to IBM Expert TV and join us.
