Wrap Up of Discover LV 2016!

 



"Get Moving with Vivit… Your User Community that Keeps you Up to Speed”, our 2016 Discover theme in Las Vegas kept all who attended the Vivit booth busy with activities. Whether an attendee was our on our Vivit treadmill desk linking up to our social media platforms, participating in a roundtable session at the Vivit Guru bar, entering in the drawing to win a Fitbit Blaze or connecting with other members, special interest groups, local user groups, Vivit staff or the newly elected board of directors – we kept them running.

Vivit has over 36,000 members worldwide and is proud to have some of the IT industry top thought-leaders as members and volunteers. Leaders from around the world gathered at Discover over June 6-9 to represent their groups and discuss the latest HPE software developments and game changing technologies.

If you haven’t already, it’s time to "get moving” with one of Vivit’s Local User Groups and Special Interest Groups

There are 82 LUGs in 31 countries and 21 virtual SIGs. Each LUG and SIG has its own focus and personality. Members of LUGs meet face to face to share best practices, tips, and tricks. Members of SIGs meet online and can participate in blogs and webinars. Locate your LUG and SIGs of choice and select the "Join group” icon which will appear at the top of the group page if you aren’t already linked. Don’t see a local user group near you or a particular SIG? Contact us to start and lead a new group.
