"I enjoyed engaging with experts in the field and seeing how to apply best practices."

Introducing a great opportunity for senior level executives through to technical leads to:

  • Ask the questions you've always wanted to ask about Amazon Web Services cloud services and technologies
  • Have direct access to AWS and enterprise IT Solution Architects and Business Development Managers.

Not only will you get to have a drink and pizza with other like-minded people, you'll leave knowing more about the AWS Cloud than you did before. You'll also get to take away a reminder of what you've learnt during the briefing session.

Places are limited on each Night, so you'll need to register early.
