Day 3 at Symantec Vision begins and ends in the Grand Garden Arena--with another great keynote in the morning and a sidesplitting performance and party at night. And of course, you can also look forward to another productive day of sessions, labs, and activities in between.

Keynote Preview
Yesterday's keynote focused on how Symantec can help you keep your business safe, compliant, and available. Today, we dive deeper into these important topics with provocative and freewheeling roundtable discussions featuring thought leaders from HP, Fujitsu, Intel VMware, Symantec customers, and experts--and moderated by veteran industry analyst James Staten from Forrester Research. You'll even have an opportunity to chime in on the discussion using a real-time live response audience polling system.

Start Your Evening Off Right at the Pre-Party Reception
Before you head over to the big Vision Conference Party in the Grand Garden Arena, stop by the Expo Hall for gourmet food, drinks, and fun. Take time to tweet or text photos with your favorite slapstick celebrity look-a-likes, sample the selection of fine beer and wine, try a "comedy cocktail," and prepare for the non-stop laughter and music to come in the feature presentation. The fun starts in the Marquee Ballroom at 6:00 pm.

Get Laughing and then Get Loud at the Big Conference Party, co-sponsored by HP
They say laughter is the best medicine. But we contend that laughter followed immediately by pounding random objects with drumsticks is even better. So after the pre-party reception, head over to the Grand Garden Arena for an exclusive live performance by Jim Gaffigan, star of a recent one-hour Comedy Central Special and one of the most popular and in-demand comedians in the United States. After you recover from the laughter, you'll get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to grab a pair of drumsticks and play along with Recycled Percussion, an innovative percussion group that was discovered on NBC's America's Got Talent, and is now one of the hottest shows in Las Vegas. Finally, don't forget your conference badge. It's your ticket into the party, and you will NOT be granted access to the Grand Garden Arena without it.
