Vision continues today with classes, keynotes, and labs but ends with a huge User Appreciation Party. What could be better? We don't know yet, but we're working on it for tomorrow!

Keynote Update

If you were here for yesterday's keynote, you were educated and entertained by an outstanding line-up of Symantec executives, Vision sponsors and other special guests. Among other things, you learned about Symantec's vision and strategy, got the scoop on the virtualization megatrend and looked inside the new V-Ray™ technology.

So what's in store for this morning's keynote? Even more cool stuff! You'll learn about the new Enterprise Vault 10 and mobile security, and you'll have a chance to hear from special guests Richard McCormack, Senior VP, Platform Marketing from Fujitsu and Tom Maloney, Director, Corporate Software Sales from CDW.

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 regarding the Vision keynotes, check out the Vision 2011 Keynote page.
