Las Vegas is an adventure in itself, but the HDI 2015 Conference & Expo is where our experience really takes off. Next week, March 24-27, we’ll be having a blast as we exhibit in booth 622 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. But, the fact that the conference is in Vegas is far from the coolest thing about it. Here are just a few of the many things we’re looking forward to at HDI next week:
The Launch of Samanage Benchmarking
Cue the fireworks and intro music! Next week at HDI, we will be officially launching Samanage Benchmarking, the product that will forever change how the IT service and support industry measures performance. We couldn’t be more excited to share it with attendees at the conference. Our team will be available in the Samanage booth (622!) to walk you through Samanage Benchmarking and give attendees the first look at what automated, real-time benchmarking can do for service organizations.
Hearing Our Partner, Jeff Rumburg, Speak
If you have been to an HDI conference in the past, you are probably very familiar with this gentleman. Our friend and partner from MetricNet, Jeff Rumburg will be speaking three times throughout the HDI conference. He will be covering topics ranging from the role of IT leadership to service desk benchmarking. Jeff will also be joining us in the Samanage booth (did we mention it was booth #622?) throughout the week. Jeff currently serves on the HDI Strategic Advisory Board and we always absorb a lot of great information from him so we can’t wait to share this with the attendees, too.
Shark Tank Keynote Speaker, Daymond John
We are so IN to see Daymond John share some of his business wisdom. Daymond may not be the most outspoken of the sharks on ABC’s Shark Tank, but he may be the most insightful. As a pioneer in the fashion industry we know Daymond will have some words of wisdom that even the best and brightest in the ITSM industry can take with them and put into action.
Getting Face-to-Face with Customers and Potential Customers
The best kind of getting out of the office is when it involves getting out and meeting the people in our industry that we work to serve every day. We get geeked about showing off our beautiful cloud-based IT service management software and the reactions of people seeing Samanage for the first time. This is why we absolutely can’t wait to get to Las Vegas and meet the 2,400 professionals at Mandalay Bay. Did we mention we really want to meet you?
And, yes, it’s Vegas (baby!)
For a few members of our team this will be their first visit to Las Vegas (don’t worry we’ll keep an eye on them). After we spend some time with hundreds of our new friends at the HDI conference, we will take the opportunity to explore. And, who knows? Maybe we’ll test our luck at the tables…and quickly walk away when we lose our first $5.
If you’ll be in Las Vegas next week, we’d love to meet you (seriously!). Stop by and see us at the HDI 2015 Conference & Expo in booth 622.
