As a forward-thinking Nutanix partner focused on delivering the best results for your customers, you might tend to be a bit of an overachiever at times. So when it came to designing this year’s .NEXT Americas Conference in Washington DC — we had you in mind. We have created opportunities not only for you to have your cake and eat it too, and in addition an entire buffet of learning, networking, and business development!

Attending .NEXT will deliver fantastic business and personal return for your time investment. Here’s how:

Just about everything I needed to know I learned at .NEXT

You don’t have to spend time cobbling together what Nutanix can do for you and your customers through a series of seminars, webinars, news articles, social media feeds—your time is precious! There is no better way to get ALL the latest Nutanix technology and business updates in one place. With 60+ breakout sessions, diverse general session speakers from across the industry, and participation by an impressive ecosystem of alliance partners whose workloads run on the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform, you can soak up all the ways in which Nutanix can help you build your business and deliver what your customers need. You’ll get caught up in 2-1/2 days!

Connect your customers with others who have made the shift

.NEXT is the way to expose your customers to the future of datacenter architectures. We know that many of your customers deeply want to move away from their legacy infrastructures and avoid further lock-in – but they want to learn more about new technologies and trends, and want to hear directly from other customers on both their successes and pitfalls. This is one of the most significant benefits of .NEXT. Last year we had over 40 customer speakers, and this year’s lineup is shaping up to be just as exciting.

Check the boxes for your personal and career development

We want .NEXT to be a fruitful and worthwhile experience for you personally. In addition to the networking and relationship building you can normally expect – this year for the first time we’ll be offering training & certification tracks especially for our channel partners. We know how challenging it is to carve out time to complete training modules within your normal day-to-day schedules. With that in mind, we’ll have Accelerated Sales Academy and SE Academy tracks for channel partners onsite at .NEXT. You can walk out of the conference with your new badge or certification! Additionally, you’ll gain information that you can use immediately in the field. Whether it’s white boarding pitches, hands-on demo best practices, the ins and outs of the Nutanix Sizer, and more – you’ll head home equipped with real-world advice from our instructors— all Nutanix sales and technical folks walking the walk daily in their roles.

Network and develop new ideas

Have a question about Nutanix products or technologies? Have some ideas around new solution areas for your business. .NEXT will bring together experts from research and development, solutions and consulting, and field sales engineering under one roof. Setup time with these experts and learn how to build differentiated offering to help you continue ‘overachieving’ on your goal of making your customers and your business successful.

All of this, when combined with the special conference pass discount available to our partners and their customers only—$899 through June 26—equates to a great return for your investment of time.
