UNITE 2017 Conference Overview

UNITE 2017 rescheduled to 30 October - 1 November in the same location due to Hurricane Irma.  The updated hotel reservations link can be reached through the UNITE Hotel Info link below.

UNITE 2017- Security In A Hybrid World!

The UNITE 2017 Conference, the only gathering of members and the Unisys user community in North America this year, will be held on October 30th through November 1st in Atlanta, Georgia.

We’ve contracted with the Atlanta Marriott Buckhead Hotel and Conference Center, an International Association of Conference Centers certified property, located in the Buckhead section of Atlanta to host the 2017 conference.   The hotel and conference center are just one block from the Lenox MARTA station and within easy reach of the many Buckhead restaurants, shopping, and entertainment venues.  The UNITE room block will expire on October 13th so make your reservation now. See the hotel information and reservation page at:  UNITE Hotel Info

To ensure a great conference and networking opportunity, the UNITE Board and Advisors worked with Unisys, sponsors, past speakers, and members of the UNITE community to finalize the content for the conference agenda.  The results are available at: Agenda Highlights 

The conference will open on Monday, October 30th, with a keynote address to set the theme of “Security in a Hybrid World”.   We all deal with security concerns in the extended organization and information technology worlds and reminders of the myriad issues (like the “wanna cry” ransomware attack) are ever present.  We’ve posted additional details of the conference regarding session schedules, and activities like the Expo Hall, on other UNITE 2017 Conference pages so continue to explore here for updates.  

Remember that User presentations to share successes and lessons learned are very valuable elements of a UNITE conference and we not only make room for any User presentations offered, we also provide a discount off the regular conference fee for the presenter. If you have a great idea for a session we may still be able to shoehorn it in.

So, if you do have a presentation to offer for the agenda please file an abstract on the UNITE Call for Presentations site at: UNITE Presentation Entry Site. Guidelines for Preparing an Abstract, the topic Wishlist, and the link for the on-line abstract entry form are at the bottom of the Welcome page for this site.

If you have ideas for a presentation that you would like to see offered at the conference or any questions, please send an email to conf.plan@unite.org or call us at 804.545.1795.

Remember to visit the UNITE 2017 Conference pages for the latest details on all conference plans.

Thank you for your continued support and participation in the Unisys user community.  We look forward to seeing you at UNITE 2017!

Sincerely,

-UNITE Board of Directors and UNITE Advisors
