Red Hat to host EMEA partner tailored conferences
Heinrich says it's vital that partners understand the business potential in their regions.

Red Hat, a global provider of open source solutions, has announced that it will host a seven-city channel roadshow of two-day partner conferences across Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region.

The partner conferences, which kick off in Sweden later this month, will see Red Hat reach out to its channel ecosystem in the UK, Egypt, Italy, France, Spain and Germany.

According to Red Hat, the channel conferences have been designed specifically for business leaders, sales, pre-sales and business development representatives from the channel ecosystem in EMEA. Red Hat states that this includes business partners, distributors, resellers, solution providers, global system integrators, ISVs or organisations that have a vested interest in its solutions.

"We recognise the value to our partners of providing content, training and networking opportunities with other Red Hat stakeholders," commented Petra Heinrich, vice president, Partners and Alliances, EMEA at Red Hat. "As we develop our business into the burgeoning markets of cloud, virtualisation and storage, it is important that our partners understand the potential in their regions. This road tour is therefore invaluable to our business and that of our partners."

Delegates at the conferences will hear from Red Hat product experts in multiple breakout sessions and keynotes. Topics will cover the entire Red Hat product and service portfolio including cloud computing, virtualisation, middleware and storage. Attendees will also have the chance to meet with event sponsors IBM and Symantec.
