Plan before you go: Discover 2018 Madrid!



This week is a great time to set aside a couple of hours to make your plans for getting the most out of your time in Madrid at HPE Discover 2018. Attendees will have access to hundreds of sessions and demos centered around IT’s hottest topics, with former participants reporting that they accomplished more in three days at Discover than they could in five days back at the office.

Plan for Discover 2018_shutterstock_318642590 (1).jpgLovely Madrid is Spain’s capital, and the third largest city in the European Union. Covering almost 5,335 square meters, this beautiful metropolitqn area is home to almost 6.2 million people. Rich in culture and known for its artistic endeavors, the city offers a wide variety of things to do and see. From bull fighting to flamenco dancing to the Musea del Prado, there is always something to pique curiosity and entertain immensely.

This November, Madrid plays host to another exciting event, HPE Discover 2018. Designed to provide a total immersion experience in all things IT, HPE Discover will deliver three days of learning, networking and fun—set to the stunning backdrop of the city appropriately nick-named El Foro, or The Forum.

To prepare for HPE Discover, the first thing you are going to want to do is download the eAgenda at so you can customize your personal diary. This nifty little app gives you a big window into all of the week’s activities. You’ll find Week-at-a-glance, Spotlight Sessions, Session tracks, a Transformation Showcase map, and other important information that will make your visit to Discover 2018 rich and rewarding.

Next you are going to want to make time in your schedule to meet and talk with an HPE Expert. There are multiple 20:00 discussions on a range of topics that are important to you and your business. You can also link to your chosen track to find relevant demos and sessions, or once you are on-site, you can take a self-guided tour of the Transformation Showcase.

Spotlight sessions demonstrate innovation in current IT trends

Make sure you plan accordingly to take in several of the Spotlight and Innovation sessions, too, for cutting-edge information on some of the most important trends in the industry.
