Systems social media + IBM Think 2018 = The technology event you can’t miss

Share this post:

IBM Think, in its inaugural year, is a conference where the brightest minds will gather to help make businesses work smarter. IBM Systems will be there at the center of the Modern Infrastructure Campus, where you’ll find dozens of learning sessions, think tanks, certifications, networking and more. Whether you’re attending Think in person or following the action remotely, there are numerous ways to stay in touch with what’s happening through the web and social media.

Meme Generator & Social Wall

All attendees who take a conference selfie will have an opportunity to select custom frames and Systems-inspired stickers to create fun memes. Make sure to visit the Modern Infrastructure Campus social wall to see your meme displayed.

Sharing your meme with the conference hashtag #think2018 has its perks too. Systems is offering an opportunity to meet featured speaker Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson. Let the best meme win!

Social VIPs

From time to time, IBM Systems will invite industry social influencers to attend marquee conferences. Their registration and accommodations are covered by IBM Systems; however, the content and opinions expressed are directly from the influencers. Jump into the conversation and engage with our Systems IT Innovators.
