Citrix Summit kicked off 2015 with powerful training, collaboration and networking

The premier annual kickoff event for Citrix and our global network of partners offered new programs to help grow business, enhance technical skills and expand professional networks—plus new activities to motivate and inspire. Mark your calendar now for Citrix Summit 2016, which returns to Las Vegas at the MGM Grand January 11–12 for even more strategic networking and training.

Senior leaders deliver Citrix vision and tech highlights

Citrix senior executives explored the exciting business opportunities in mobile workspaces—powered by Citrix market-leading technologies in virtualization, networking and cloud services­—and offered a vision into the software-defined workplace. In two keynote addresses, presented jointly to partners and sales teams, they offered early insight into the Citrix roadmap as well as a technical preview of exciting new products to come.

Work better. Live better.

Summit prepared attendees for new developments in mobile workspace solutions, and provided resources to position and sell the key technologies that drive them. Sessions were targeted by role—business, sales and technical—to deliver content with immediate value, and interactive, real-world environments helped attendees apply new product knowledge in a hands-on setting. Summit put partners face to face with Citrix experts, and provided tools to help them navigate and sell into key verticals including healthcare, education and financial services.

Sessions were organized into eight tracks to help partners expand their Citrix expertise and enhance their profitability, no matter their focus:
