CloudBeat_GraphicWhy CloudBeat?
Other cloud events focus on legacy technologies and incremental change and tend to let the cloud “vendors” do the talking. CloudBeat, by contrast, delivers actionable lessons by focusing on real customers that are adopting the most disruptive technologies out there, regardless of who peddles them.

This year we’re featuring new cases from PayPal, Netflix, Stanford University, Airbnb, and General Electric, to name a few.

Innovation Showdown
Day two of CloudBeat will feature a lively startup competition where ten cloud companies — chosen from a pool of hundreds — will pitch their products/services live in front of an expert panel of judges and the full audience. Full details and submission can be found here. The application deadline is August 16.

CloudBeat 2013 will help you find those new investors, new hires, and new business opportunities through a series of organized initiatives including roundtable lunch discussions, quick-connect sessions, business card bingo, receptions, and a slick new networking app.

Join 500 executives — with a mix of business and IT decision makers, analysts, investors, brands, marketers, and press — for a rare look at what’s really working, who’s buying what, and where the industry is going as the cloud grows up.
