Storage World Conference 2005

2005 Agenda

SWC 2005 is planning a great 5th Anniversary agenda geared to give you a well-rounded educational experience. Combining tutorials,
end-user forums, and vendor keynotes, SWC is raising the bar for the Novice to Expert alike. We will be spreading our full-day tutorial session over the course of three days, allowing us to repeat our most popular sessions as well as creating longer sessions for those courses requiring more time.

We also boast a full 8 hours of Expo hours to give you every opportunity to get caught up on the latest technology from our illustrious sponsors. In addition to our Expo Hall receptions, we are adding an additional Networking Reception prior to the SWC 2005 Awards Banquet. This will give you an extra opportunity to network with your peers and perhaps close new business.

Please check this page frequently, as we will be updating as our Agenda begins to grow.
