The Partner Ready Certification and Learning team were excited to welcome our community to HPE Technology and Solutions Summit in Gothenburg, Sweden with more than 400 technical breakout sessions as well as 75 hours of hands-on labs and up to 3 free exams at the popular testing center.

Delegates had the opportunity to receive a personalized learning experience and advance their value around HPE technologies and solutions. Our partners achieved 407 new certifications and earned valuable Knowledge Credits towards their company’s FY'17 Partner Ready specialization compliance.

The testing center was busy the entire week with 646 people sitting almost 1300 exam, up 28% from HPE TSS in Cannes back in February. 

Key highlights of HPE TSS Gothenburg include:

  • HPE Transformation Areas – Solutions deep dive sessions
  • HPE Synergy – Composable Infrastructure in action with hands-on labs
  • HPE Aruba – Experience the Data Center of the future
  • HPE New Technology Room and HPE Presales Suite 

Evening events

On Tuesday evening,  we, along with Intel®, celebrated our 10 year anniversary with the longest and most delicious birthday cake ever!


On Thursday evening, SanDisk welcomed us at Trädgarn, in the heart of Gothenburg botanical gardens. The sun sets at 10.30 pm in Gothenburg in the summer months. A giant Jenga was set up on the terrace and since we are in the heart of UEFA EURO 2016,  the football match between Germany and Poland was broadcasted live during the event.
