Paris, Las Vegas, Nevada. January 11 – 16
IBM holds a yearly world-wide field education event. This was the first where the Rational team attended. If you can imagine a huge event, think much much larger; 11.000 field sales representatives from all over the world. Accommodated at most of the Las Vegas hotels. Busses from all over US to manage transportation cross all the sessions at Mirage, Venetian, Paris and other hotels.
The Main Tent session was hosted by Sam Palmisano, IBM Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer. Spectacular show inspired by Las Vegas boxing.
A few pictures from the huge task of transporting and feeding the crowd.
This year the Treasure Island show had morphed into a ‘Sirens’ show. More flaming girls and stunned sailors.
