Review: UK Citrix User Group XIII – “bloody good fun”

The Citrix UK User Group XIII event kicked into its teenageness with an impressive attendance from the pleasant surrounds of Southwark in the Novotel on Blackfriars Road in London. Decent coffee, working air-con, commendable wi-fi: happy days. Mind…what a useless projector…

No?…

Just me?…

Fair enough then…

The Steering Group would like to thank all the presenters for their time, effort and engaging presentations. As ever, thanks the 3D-realtime attendees for providing interesting and useful questions and discussing challenges and ideas. And to those on-line – its great to virtually see you.

The UK Citrix User Group believe in engaging the community to drive the best value for everyone, and with that in mind we continued our use of Go-To-Webinar to broadcast the event live. Waves and thanks to the 20+ virtual attendees  who called us on the telephone so they wouldn’t be alone. For those who’ve attended on-line before hope the fact we had microphones this time gave better audio.  We didn’t record this one; we don’t seem to get a lot of people following up after the event. Your feedback, as ever, is appreciated, we’d like to know how best to hold your hand.

Who comes to these events? Quick stats run down… it is mainly end users of attendees on the day but, you know, other people want to hold us tight:-

  • 54% end users
  • 13% from Citrix ( yep… well worth coming to get to speak to those on the other side of the tunnel to make sure you’re both digging the same way)
  • 23% from partners/consultancies
  • 8% vendor

Of course, many thanks to our sponsors AppSenseAtlantis Computing, eg Innovations, fslogix, PernixData and LiquidwareLabs for helping to make this our thirteenth free-to-attend event: no matter where you are. I’ll admit we do challenge our sponsors by giving them a 15 minute slot, but well done to them all for focusing their content to fit the time.

Welcome to UK Citrix User Group

Nice touch from Novotel, unless you’ve spent your weekend doing an Octoblu demo…
