Why NetEvents?

Our conference debate sessions will provide you with the opportunity to hear expert views and debate on a number of key issues facing the industry today. Following on from this, our scheduled media briefings provide the added benefit of allowing sponsors one-on-one time to brief the media on their current focus, strategy, new products, customer case studies etc. This will enable you to not only get your company’s message across to a host of international media, but also to establish and build strong relationships for the future.

Not only do our events provide a very efficient and cost effective way to brief press and analysts – they are conducted in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. As well as a series of formal scheduled 30 minute briefings during the day our hospitality activities offer the additional opportunity for informal networking with the participating media.

Don’t just take our word for it!

David Cheriton, Founder and Chief Scientist, Apstra

The special Innovation Idol Award was presented by Mark Fox, CEO of NetEvents – went to Professor David Cheriton, who commented: “David has made a tremendous contribution to the computer networking industry since arriving in Silicon Valley 36 years ago. David is a distributed systems and networking expert with keen insight into identifying big market opportunities and building the architectures needed to address these opportunities. David has inspired many of his Stanford University students to progress and achieve great success – perhaps the most notable are Sergey Brin and Larry Page who, with guidance and initial seed funding from David went on to form Google. David also met Mendel Rosenblum at Stanford who in turn introduced him to Diane Greene, and went on to become the first investor and an early advisor to VMWare. David has funded more than 20 companies. His latest venture is Apstra where he is developing an intent-based self-operating network for the Datacenter – his vision is gaining considerable attention from the international media community. As Innovation Idol, David joins an elite club of past winners which includes Ethernet inventor Bob Metcalfe, OpenFlow inventor Martin Casado, who can also be attributed with setting the industry down the SDN path, Silicon Valley entrepreneur Andy Bechtolsheim, plus last years winner Stuart McClure for his work in successfully leading the industry in applying Artificial Intelligence in security applications”.
