Dell EMC World FAQs
When is Dell EMC World 2016?
Dell EMC World takes the place of Dell World this October 18-20 in Austin, Texas. Register here.
So, there is no more Dell World?
Not by that name. Dell World is now Dell EMC World. It’s the Dell World you expect, expanded and enhanced.
Why the change to Dell EMC World?
Now that Dell has combined with EMC under our new company, Dell Technologies, this annual event is being revamped (and renamed) to fit new audiences, technologies and learning opportunities.
What if I already registered for Dell World?
Then your registration is automatically rolled over to Dell EMC World. No action is needed on your part. See you in Austin!
Is the event location changing?
Our location is not moving for the 2016 event. You do not need to adjust your travel or hotel arrangements – we are still at the Austin Convention Center for Dell EMC World 2016.
I am an EMC customer. Is this event for me?
Yes! We’ll discuss the solutions you already know and introduce you to plenty of new ones. Come learn how the combination of Dell and EMC brings a host of new capabilities to the EMC portfolio.
I’m an EMC partner, am I invited?
Yes! EMC partners are welcome to Dell EMC World and will find sessions and activities designed specifically for you.
Will I have access to all of the EMC sessions and labs that are usually featured at EMC World?
Not in 2016. Because of space considerations in Austin, we are offering a curated selection of EMC-related content that is most relevant to the Dell EMC community this year. Next May you can look forward to seeing the full spectrum of content you expect from both EMC World and Dell World, all in one place.
I am an alumnus of EMC World. Do I get special perks at Dell EMC World?
Yes. Qualified EMC World alumni receive the same perks as Dell World alumni. We will let you know if you qualify and send you information about your special perks after you’ve registered.
Is there still an EMC World?
Not by that name. EMC World will also be called Dell EMC World. We’re using Dell EMC World 2016 to begin the combination of Dell World and EMC World events in preparation for next May, when both events will be fully combined under the banner of Dell EMC World.
When is the 2017 event?
Dell EMC World 2017 will take place May 8-11 in Las Vegas.
Does all of this affect VMworld or RSA Conference?
No, VMworld and RSA Conference are not affected by Dell EMC World.
I can’t attend in person this year. Can I watch the event online?
Yes. Keynotes and select sessions will be streamed online through Dell EMC Live, our online broadcasting platform that gives you virtual access to the event. You can also tune in to special live programming like interviews with Dell EMC leaders, customers and more. No prior registration is required.
