Registration for Serena xChange16 is now open. The Early Bird promotions run through June 30th and I would encourage early registration.
The preliminary agenda can be found on the xChange16 website along with details on the optional training day classes we are providing this year. Please be sure to check out the Agenda and the 1 day Training classes that will be held on Sunday, September 18th. xChange16 runs from Sunday 18th September with our traditional welcome reception, through Wednesday September 21st. Customer Advisory Board Meetings will be held on Thursday, September 22nd.
This year we are back in Chicago at the newly renovated Renaissance Hotel on Wacker Drive, a terrific conference location. We very much look forward to helping our customers get the most value out of their Serena investments, with presentations and workshops featuring outstanding thought leaders, technical experts, customer champions and technology partners.
As a reminder, the Call for Speakers is open through June 30th, and if selected we are waiving the conference fee! This is a great opportunity for customers to contribute to what makes the conference so special – sharing experiences with your peers and as always, the best customer presentations will be shortlisted for a Serena Innovation Award.
