Article Contributors:




Emelda Tan - HP ExpertOne Program Marketing Manager for the EMEA region.





Mikael Winther (HP Master ASE) - Infrastructure Architect at EG A/S. Mikael lives in Denmark and regularly attends ETSS events.




HP ExpertOne Technology and Solutions Summit is an exclusive event for our Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region-based HP channel partners and presales engineers.

This year, HP ETSS (HP ExpertOne Technology and Solutions Summit) will be in Copenhagen from June 25 -28. If you haven’t heard of ETSS before, it’s the EMEA region’s biggest technical conference filled with over 200 breakout sessions, hands-on and demo labs, keynote sessions and exclusive access to the on-site certification testing center.  The event covers the entire HP Enterprise Group portfolio of products, services and solutions. 


New Technology

With 225 technology and solutions sessions to choose from, plus access to open labs, you will have access to the latest information on the entire Enterprise product and services portfolio, including:

  • Integrity and Non-Stop Servers
  • HP ProLiant servers and HP BladeSystems technologies, including High Performance Computing
  • HP Storage products and solutions
  • HP Networking
  • HP Support and Consulting Services
  • HP Software




Access to the Experts

HP ETSS is a one stop shop to ask questions from subject matter experts about the latest HP technology solutions. They will be available to answer your questions, demo the latest solutions and perform a knowledge transfer using the Vulcan mind-meld. Ok, I maybe stretching the truth a bit but after four days of intense knowledge transfer, you will feel like someone has performed a mind-meld on your brain.


Peer (community) Networking

With over 1,000 of your peers in attendance, ETSS is an excellent opportunity to catch up with old friend and meet new ones. I always leave each event with newly gained experiences, knowledge and long list of new friends. It’s this network that I’ve come to rely on when I’m stuck and need help with a challenging technical problem.


On-site certification test center

The HP ExpertOne program is hosting an on-site certification testing center. All channel partners in attendance are eligible to take up to three HP0 exams. If you aren’t sure which exam to take, the ExpertOne program team will be able there to support you with questions about the best exam to sit for a given certification.


Open Labs

The open labs will be open slots where you can run any of the hands-on labs available during the conference. Instructors will be available in the lab rooms (five) to assist you with questions, or to walk you through a lab.


Sight-Seeing and Evening Events

Bring your camera to Copenhagen. From the Den blå planet (huge national aquarium) to the Strøget (one of Europe's longest pedestrian shopping areas), Copenhagen is a tourist destination with plenty of sights to see and pictures to take.
