Look, we know there’s a lot going on in San Francisco next week.

But if you’re interested in enterprise cloud technologies, there’s only one event that you need to be at: CloudBeat 2013.

We’ve got what we believe is one of the most compelling rosters of real cloud tech customers ever seen in one room. The program features 85 confirmed speakers, ranging from top execs at Pivotal and Salesforce to top chief information officers and chief technology officers from companies who are actually using cloud technology.

Not just your usual talking-head executive conference, CloudBeat stands out as a place where people who know cloud tech first-hand share insights on the latest technologies, what’s working, who’s buying what, and where the industry is going.

It offers unparalleled opportunities to form partnerships, strike up new relationships, learn, and connect with cloud industry VIPs.

And it’s all happening Sept. 9-Sept. 10 at the Grand Hyatt in San Francisco. Register today for a 20 percent VIP discount.
