Summits at SNW will include:
• half-day of compelling content drilling down into hot technology and IT topics
• exclusive branding opportunities and association with focused content
• speaking and networking opportunities (sessions, panels, speed networking)
• exclusive, limited sponsorship opportunities
• separate summit-like “feel” with intimacy and peer networking
• all the attributes of a “conference within a conference”

The Hands-on Labs provides end users with one-on-one contact with participating vendors as end users are guided through a series of exercises organized around various technology themes.
