World Wide Technology, Inc. (WWT), a market-leading systems integrator that provides innovative technology and supply chain solutions, announced today that Geek Day 2013 will be held March 27 - 28 at the Hyatt Regency in San Francisco. Now in its ninth year, the two-day educational and professional networking event will feature live demonstrations of nearly 200 cutting-edge wireless and mobility, data center, virtualization, security and collaboration products and solutions from more than 50 leading IT manufacturers as well as breakout sessions, in-depth classes and multiple opportunities for professionals to network with peers and industry thought leaders.

“Geek Day 2013 promises to be an extraordinary opportunity for IT professionals to experience the most advanced technology solutions available today in a truly vendor-neutral environment, learn best practices from experts, interact with peers and explore the current high-tech landscape,” said Scott Miller, director of data center with World Wide Technology.

The Geek Lab provides identical set-ups for technology sponsors to showcase solutions, regardless of whether they are a multi-national corporation or an emerging IT start-up. This controlled environment gives attendees the opportunity to evaluate a wide range of IT solutions based on functionality, watch live demonstrations and ask questions of technical specialists without sales pressure. Fifty-minute breakout sessions deliver more in-depth insight with experts outlining best practices, answering comprehensive questions and highlighting new releases. Throughout the event, attendees have time to interact with peers and thought leaders to define technology strategies, explore new ideas, find solutions to current challenges and further identify best practices for success. IT professionals are encouraged to attend both days of the event in order to fully leverage educational and networking opportunities.

Hundreds of attendees have already registered for Geek Day 2013. Featured Geek Labs and breakout sessions will cover topics including data center, virtualization, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), cloud computing, storage, networking, borderless networks, security, mobility, BYOD, desktop and application solutions, facilities, infrastructure, cabling, power, cooling and more.

“WWT is excited to sponsor Geek Day 2013 and extremely proud that this event has become so well-known in the IT industry for providing commercial and federal participants an unmatched opportunity to review products, evaluate reference architectures and gain first-hand knowledge of a wide range of IT solutions from a global array of technology vendors,” added Miller.
