UK Citrix User Group: XXI – Welcome to the Jungle

Covering topics on SD-WAN, IoT, GDPR, Secure access, the state of the VDI/SBC union and the future of Citrix, this was our 21st event, and possibly our hotest ever. Thanks to our excellent sponsors Liquidware, Lakeside SoftwareFS Logix, Unicon Software, AppEsnure, Ivanti, Bitdefender, eg Innovations, ControlUp, 10Zig, Atrust, CloudhouseIgel and Dell this was, for all your keys-in-the-door, a free-to-attend meeting.

The UK Steering Group would like to thank all the presenters for their time, effort and engaging presentations: especially for those presenters presenting for the first time at our user group. Thanks to the 3D-realtime-non-augmented-VR attendees for providing insightful feedback especially for hurling some questions at Kevin: apologies for keeping the audio on during the afternoon tea-break. It is always splendid to meet and greet new faces as well as catch up with older hands.

Who attends UK Citrix User Group events? For XXI we had almost 120 registered and we had an excellent turnout on the day. It did fell as if there was some canny dipping in and out of sessions to nip back to the office if I’m not mistaken, which I think we should file under “agile working”.

Again, thanks to our sponsors for this free-to-attend event. Significantly, fsLogix for the lovely lunch and post event beers, and Unicon Software for refreshments.

The Steering Group would like to thank all the presenters for their time, effort and engaging presentations: especially for those presenting for the first time at the user group. Thanks to the 3D-realtime-non-augmented-VR attendees for providing insightful feedback and great questions. It is always splendid to meet and greet new faces. We had more chairs this time with your own special little desk: see, we do read the feedback forms.  Thanks also to those attending on-line via Go-to-Webinar. We a couple of niggles early doors, but also a fancy new microphone that just about survived the event unbroken, hopefully that helped.

Who attends UK Citrix User Group events? For XVIX over 110 registered and we had about 70% turn up on the day – with a number of on-the-door registrations (which is always possible btw). It is mainly end users of attendees on the day but, you know here in the UK, we enjoy inclusivity. Of those attending  :-

  • 70% end users/partners – we did see lots of new faces (looked to be about a third). Thanks to the experienced hands who made the trek down/across/up and for the select group who caught a cheeky mid-session pint, but still came back.
  • 10% from Citrix. As always, good to see you – especially during the Interesting Licensing and Value Questions that came up in the Round Table. A user group needs the support and focus from the vendor to be successful and we appreciate your contribution. All being well we could well have a special event in 2017, focused on meeting with the engineering teams directly. I’ve likely already said to much… LOOK..! Over there! Its a squirrel!
  • 1% came from Sponsors
  • The rest put “other” for those of you who like completeness.

Again, thanks to our sponsors for this free-to-attend event, especially Liquidware for the lovely lunch which had some great pie, and Appensure for refreshment and Extrahop for the post-event drinks and eats.
