Citrix Synergy Guide for First Timers and Old Timers – Know Before you Go
Whether you’ve been to Citrix Synergy zero or many times, today’s blog is for you. I’ve had the pleasure of going to about 13 Citrix annual events (now called Synergy) and even more if you count a few in Europe. I was even at the first “Citrix Thinergy” in 1998. I’ve learned a few things about this conference, working with Citrix and surviving towns like Vegas. If you are somewhat new to this event or Vegas, or even if you’ve been more times than me, here are some things you should know before you go.
- The cab lines at the Las Vegas airport can be long. There is also no sense in renting a car if you are staying at the Venetian or close to the Sands Convention Center. If you are staying on the strip near the monorail the Las Vegas strip is easy to get around without a car.
- The Venetian is one of the fanciest hotels in Vegas and it is also the closest. The rooms are nice and the suites are nicer. However, there is no need to drop the amount of coin it takes to stay there though. Hotels like Harrah’s and The LINQ are nice and very close. They are very affordable compared to the Venetian.
- Attend the keynote and the General Sessions. Day one will be by the new Citrix President and CEO, Kirill Tatarinov. Day two is lead in part by Bill Burley, Corporate VP and GM, Workspace Services, Citrix. If you want to know what the highlights of the show will be you need to hear/watch the keynote. If you don’t want to fight the crowd you can watch it via the Synergy website from the comfort of your hotel room.
- Here are a couple of must attend sessions IMO, especially if you are focused on desktops:
