Last month IFEMA hosted the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Summit, an event organised by AWS to bring together the Cloud Computing community in Spain with the aim of collaborating and learning about AWS’ services.
The event was designed with a clear message: how to get the most out of the AWS platform? From there, it helped connect customers with the AWS ecosystem, and explain the services AWS offers through technical or business sessions, with the assistance of experts in the field, and an exhibition area to learn from the AWS Partners.
The event was an opportunity to discover the latest cloud computing news. Thousands of attendees had the opportunity to attend business sessions, talk to cloud computing experts, visit the exhibition area and listen to customers from all sectors with AWS users sharing their experiences of innovation thanks to the cloud.
During the keynote address, the attendees discovered how leading companies reduce their costs and improve their efficiency as well as accelerate their digital transformation thanks to the AWS cloud.
Throughout Hall 10 of IFEMA, an exhibition area was designed, totalling 4,090sqm with stands, training sessions, a partner expo, activities and a theater of solutions.
More than 35 breakout sessions divided by theme in seven parallel tracks –including topics such as artificial intelligence, IoT, Big Data, Serverless, DevOps, among others, took place in the ‘Breakout Session’ area.
Talks were presented by partners of the AWS Partner Network (APN) in the ‘Theater of Solutions’.
One of the objectives of the event was to involve attendees in the activities. In addition to the Keynote and the more than 35 sessions that were offered, the AWS Summit included many activities where attendees were encouraged to participate and experiment.
Spaces were designed to deal with different topics such as ‘Ask an expert’ to help attendees with any question about AWS; the ‘Expo and partner theater’ with live service demonstrations and Partners presentations to help make the most of the AWS cloud; and the ‘AWS Booth’ to receive more information about the different teams of AWS, public sector and education, and enterprise.
During the event, AWS offered a space to solve technical questions of attendees. The ‘Startup Central’ allowed participants to learn about some of the most innovative startups and discover how to take advantage of the AWS services.
