EMC World, EMC’s annual global customer and partner conference, is about to kick-off today!
The theme for 2013 is “Lead your Transformation” and our aim is to empower EMC World attendees with the tools and technologies to lead the transformation of their IT organizations.
This is my third time at EMC World and every year we push the boundaries of integrating social media and community into the experience.
3 years ago, there was “Social City”, a space with a kiosk to sign up people for our social channels, as well as host “buzz talks”, which were live Q&As with subject matter experts. I ran some of those with the corporate social media team, so people who weren’t able to attend could interact live with the speakers. Last year, Buzz Talks were even bigger and so was our Bloggers’ Lounge.
This year, be amazed by Bloggers Space, where you can write, recharge and meet fellow bloggers, as well as engage with our EMC Elect, the VIPs of our online community.
