Can we buy a Spiceworld Ticket as a company?

We are interested in going, but being a small team it's hard to have one person gone for three days. Is there capability to buy a single 3 day ticket under our company name and have a different employee attend on different days to represent the company?

Spiceworld Austin - Exhibitors

Hola! I am wondering if there is a list of exhibitors that will be at Spiceworld 2017? I am hoping to see an uptick from last year (closer to the amount of vendors 2 years ago).

Mr. Reboots goes to Austin (for Spiceworld)

So it's not totally confirmed yet, but thanks to an Unplugged event that I participated in with some of the guys in the Spicecorps of Central Arizona (no razors required), I have a ticket to Spiceworld.

My new company has an office in Austin that Desktop Engineering hasn't visited in a year. My boss agreed that it would be prudent to send me to Austin to represent our department, and then tack on a few days to go to a conference. In short, I may be able to take a trip I could not otherwise afford to hang out with all of you.

I look forward to meeting all of you souls that make the pilgrimage.

A Million Ways to Die in IT

By Andrew Bettany @ Spiceworks All Access London 2017

The current security landscape is scary, and requires that you bring your best game to work every day. The risk of data loss, through theft or malware is constant and on the increase. You learn to stay alert and beware of the risks, but your users need help to be protected. With many businesses now moving from Windows 7 to Windows 10, now is a good time to consider deploying some of the security features offered by Windows 10, such as BitLocker, biometric identity access, anti-malware protection and SmartScreen to name just a few, to prevent you from losing your head, and your job!

How to Carry an Elephant Without Breaking Your Back

By Breffni Potter @ Spiceworks All Access London 2017

"When is the last time you heard someone say IT is easy? With last minute requests, late night disasters and a to-do list which inspires fear every time you look at it. Over time this pressure can wear you down, bit like carrying an elephant. If you feel like there is no time to do what needs to be done and you are barely keeping the systems going, come to this session to learn how you can take back control. (Disclaimer: Due to health and safety there will be no elephants present.)

This session will cover:

  • Tools for the job – specific tools/processes.
  • Metrics Help. Motivate yourself to stay on top and how to show your management what you do.
  • You are special – If you don’t take care of yourself, the jobs will only get harder.
  • Importance of finding peer groups and help.
