If you thought the first day of Symantec Vision 2011 was good, wait until you see Day 2! Actually, you don't have to wait. It's already here!
We've got a jam-packed opening keynote session lined up for you today. CEO Enrique Salem will kick things off with an update of Symantec's vision and strategy and among an all-star line-up of special guests, VMware CTO Stephen Herrod will dive deep into virtualization, one of the industry megatrends.
You'll also have the opportunity to gain visibility -- pun intended -- into the new V-Ray™ technology when our own Deepak Mohan takes the stage. And don't forget about the Early Bird prize raffles for those who are in their seats by 8:45 a.m. Be sure to get there early for your chance to win an iPod Touch, Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones, or a Flip camcorder! For more information about the keynote sessions, check out the Vision 2011 Keynote page.
Surround Yourself with the Essentials
If You Haven't Already Checked In
Hopefully you're all checked in, have picked up your badge and conference materials and are ready to go. But if not, the Registration Desk will be open today 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m., Wednesday 7:30 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. and Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The registration desk is located at the top of the escalators on the Promenade level of the Caesars Palace conference center. You can log in at the Self Check-in stations, then pick up your badge at the Registration Desk and conference materials at the Conference Services Desk. Surround Yourself with Learning Opportunities Make it a day packed full of break-outs, hands-on labs, optional training and certification. And don't forget the self-paced labs. Instructor-led hands-on labs have quickly become one of the most popular activities at Symantec Vision.
In 2011, we're building on that success with an all-new series of self-guided hands-on labs that offer you a unique opportunity to learn and explore Symantec technology at your own pace and on your own schedule. The self-paced lab is located in Milano I on the Promenade Level of the Caesars Conference Center and is open today from 8:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. However, it is closed during the keynote.
