The ExecEvent Explores the Big Data Hype and How It Affects Storage Vendors

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - April 5, 2011) - The ExecEvent, a networking event created to help technology executives develop the "business behind their business," today announced details for its upcoming June 2011 conference, to be held June 8th-10th at the Batterymarch Conference Center within the Hilton Boston Financial District. Registration is now open and is limited to qualified senior executives in the storage, networking, security, virtualization and cloud computing industries.

The ExecEvent offers educational, networking and business development opportunities without the sales and marketing distractions of typical trade shows. This conference will revolve around three major themes -- Big Data, Improving Your Marketing Success and Deals and Partnerships in This Economy.

Agenda highlights include:

Big Data -- How does all this hype affect storage and storage related companies? What does it mean for your company?

  • Big Data -- What does it all mean to the storage vendor? -- By Julie Lockner, ESG's Senior Analyst and Vice President

  • A CIO Perspective -- A local CIO with real data problems will talk about what he/she needs from storage vendors and where he/she sees the holes in the marketplace

  • Broad Brushes and Final Thoughts on Big Data and Implications for Storage Vendors -- By David Vellante, Founder and CEO of the Wikibon Project

Marketing Professionals -- Hosted by top-tier marketing executives, we are expanding this very popular roundtable to allow for more in-depth discussions around what works, what doesn't and why you should care. 

Keynote -- Peter Levine (Citrix and Andreessen-Horowitz) is back. Peter is a great speaker and is well respected for his vision into the industry by both big companies and start-ups alike. Peter's presentations are worth the price of admission all by themselves.

Corporate and Business Development Professionals -- Hosted by senior corporate and business development executives from both large and small companies, like our marketing roundtables, this discussion group has been expanded to allow for delving deeper into partnerships, M&A, OEM deals and strategic relationships. 

The ExecEvent provides fast-moving executives with the tools and the venue to learn and network with their peers in a convenient and cost-effective manner. Attendance is subject to approval for qualified executives and the number of attendees is limited.

Registration is now open and costs $975 per person. Returning attendees receive special consideration. Press member registration is complimentary. For registration details and updates visit
