2011 NY Tech Summit Recap

2011 NY Tech Summit Recap

The 2011 NY Tech Summit, held on June 9-10 at Turning Stone Resort & Casino, provided attendees with seminars on the latest trends and technologies, including virtualization, cloud computing, unified communications and IT operations and management. Attendees also had the opportunity to view equipment demonstrations and leading technologies on the trade show floor from such companies as Cisco, HP, Dell and more.

This year’s Keynote Speaker was Larry Winget, the trademarked Pitbull of Personal Development® and The World’s Only Irritational Speaker®. Winget offered sound, common sense advice for both life and business.

New this year were Day 2 Morning and Afternoon keynote speakers.  Florence Huban Suraci, Regional Sales Manager, U.S. Commercial East Territory, Unified Computing System for Cisco, spoke about “Cloud…Cisco…and why you should care!” Steve Botlagudur, Partner Business Manager at Hewlett-Packard, presented a session titled, “HP – Changing the Rules of Networking.”



We have come to NY Tech Summit for four years now and my team and I get a good variety of technical, business, and strategic sessions to complement our work objectives. I like that there is a balance of end users, consultants, and vendors to present and facilitate the sessions. The interaction is candid and engaging, but not a sales pitch. Being a regional conference helps, it is the right amount of time and location for a couple days to reenergize my team and refocus on our objectives. There seems to be quite a bit of peer discussion with a smaller conference, which I like.
