EMC World 2013

Attendees from around the globe will join us to embrace this year’s theme, “Lead Your Transformation.” You can bet EMC World 2013 will be like no other. We’ve planned more than 600 technical sessions, 30+ hands-on labs with 200 seats, keynotes on every nuance vital to IT – focusing on what our customers and partners care about, right now.  And if you’re interested in rocking out, check out the “out of this world” performer joining us at the Customer Appreciation Event on May 8.
