Citrix Synergy 2017? For me? How exciting!

By Steven Fleischman

For me, the first day of any event is like opening a nicely wrapped present. That’s definitely true for Citrix Synergy. I know there’s something great inside that I can’t wait to see and experience. So for this year’s event, I have torn off the wrapping paper (hmmm, nice Star Wars design), opened the package and started rummaging through all the contents. I was right. It’s all great - especially what Hewlett Packard Enterprise is presenting. Let me tell you what I found.


Wow. My own Booth: #206
The first thing I came across was the HPE booth. This is where the action is. You’ll find experts from both companies who will be happy to talk with you about the workspace of the future … and how you can make it yours today. A new era of digital reinvention has started. Citrix, HPE and Intel have everything to make sure you are part of the reinvention, right from the start. While at the Booth, don’t forget to enter the raffle to win an HP Elite 3X mobile and other great prizes

A Hall of Fame linebacker? Just what I’ve always wanted!
Yep. Hall of Fame football great Lawrence Taylor will be at HPE and Intel® Customer Appreciation reception that will be held on Wednesday, May 24, 2017; 7:00pm - 9:00pm; Blue Martini, 9101 International Drive, Suite 1182. RSVP . Don’t miss this opportunity to make connections, gather insights, and explore new partnership opportunities, all while enjoying drinks and good conversation.

A complete collection of theater presentations and demos? Aw, you shouldn’t have.
