What: IBM THINK 2019
When: February 12-15
Where: Moscone Center, San Francisco, CA
With IBM THINK less than a week away, we wanted to provide you with a primer to the conference, highlight some of the top sessions and keynotes, and give you tips on how to get the most out of it. If you’re not familiar, or if it’s your first time attending, THINK is a one-of-a-kind business and technology event hosted every year by IBM. It offers attendees the opportunity to attend informative sessions, labs, and expert talks, plus the chance to network with exhibitors and IBM partners.
What You Can Expect at THINK
In addition to those exciting keynotes, there are general sessions, talks on innovation, trends and directions, and breakout sessions throughout the week. This is the bread and butter of the conference in many ways. It’s during these sessions where you’ll learn about new technologies that are shaping various industries and you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and get them answered by experts. Topics include the cloud, AI, data and analytics, infrastructure, and much more. Check out the curriculum page to see session topics and start building your agenda.
One of the big attractions of the conference is the multitude of speakers, ranging from technology to business to sports and entertainment. Some of this year’s notable names include CEO, President and Chairman of IBM Ginni Rometty, former NFL quarterback Joe Montana, Chelsea Clinton, Tony Hawk, Danica Patrick, and many, many more. IBM provides full bios for all the speakers here.
We also will be participating in several sessions ourselves, but more on that below…
This where all the magic happens. It’s where you can learn, network, and connect with like-minded people who understand the challenges you’re facing. The expo officially opens at 5 pm PST on Tuesday, February 12 so make sure you’re ready to go. There are four different campuses, designed to help you find the information that’s relevant to you:
- Smarter Business Showcase: Guidance from top experts and industry-leading service solutions
