2017 US & Australia conference round-up: ‘Very collaborative & focussed on elevating the profession’

After the 2017 UK conference in June, we delivered a further two ‘ITAM in the Cloud Era’ events. One in South Florida, US on September 27th & 28th, and the other in Sydney, Australia on 22nd & 23rd November.

We had a great turn-out to both conferences and delegates benefitted from an increased number of end-user speakers delivering informative plenary sessions and interactive workshop sessions.
