7 Reasons To Head For Vegas: IT's Secret Weapons

We've selected seven Interop presenters that will make it worth a trip to Vegas. You'll be so absorbed in tech, you won't even notice the glitter.

Why should you book a trip to Las Vegas for the end of March? Many might be lured by the prospect of escaping the Polar Vortex that has swallowed most of North America this season, or the promise of winning large sums of money while being served free drinks by scantily clad waitstaff. But for IT pros, the real action is at Interop.

The conference, held at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center from March 31 to April 3, offers big-name keynote speakers and a flashy exposition floor. But its secret weapon -- and the reason so many IT professionals return year after year -- is the top-notch instruction provided by some of the most experienced practitioners, or uber-unicorns, you'll ever meet.

Top-rated speakers, many of them Network Computing contributors, will deliver in-depth sessions and workshops on topics like networking, data centers, storage, security, and cloud infrastructure. Here we've selected seven presenters that will make it worth your while to head to Vegas. You'll be so captivated by the substance you find inside the conference rooms that the sunshine and glitter of the Strip are only distant distractions.

Check out the secret weapons on Network Computing.
