Share this post:

For the very first time, IBM Think is headed to the Golden City – San Francisco, California. Think is a conference designed to bring attendees together to sharpen skills, grow professional networks, engage with industry experts and have some fun! You’ll find IBM Systems at the Cloud & Infrastructure campus. There, attendees will have an immersive experience showcasing client stories, interactive think tanks, theater sessions and demos of IBM technologies including quantum computing. Whether you’re attending Think in person or following the action from afar, there are several ways to stay in touch with what’s happening through the web and social media.

Industry leaders on the ground

Occasionally IBM Systems invites industry social influencers to attend our events and share their unique points of view. Registration and accommodations are covered by IBM Systems for these “Social VIPs”; however, the content and opinions expressed come directly from the influencers and don’t necessarily reflect the views of IBM.

Jump in the conversation and engage today with #think2019 and #IBMpartner.
