There are three big events going down in one Las Vegas convention center.

  • As the largest and most comprehensive independent IT event, Interop’s mission is to drive growth and innovation in the trillion dollar global business technology market.
  • IT professionals and business decision makers come to Interop to efficiently see leading technology companies and new products in one place and effectively learn how to leverage technology to drive down costs, foster improved collaboration and communication, and better compete in the today’s challenging market.
  • For over two decades, Interop has delivered on its mission to drive the growth and innovation of the trillion dollar global business technology market. This year, Interop makes a special effort to highlight technologies and strategies that produce immediate results and generate ROI, equipping attendees with resources and education that can’t be found anywhere else.
  • Unlike in 2000, the technology market did not get us into the current economic situation, but the tech market can help get us out by focusing on IT innovation, which is happening at breakneck pace. Interop’s comprehensive educational program includes 18 tracks and a number of full day programs focused on IT security, cloud computing, data center, virtualization, green IT, mobility and a host of other key business technology topics.
