Happy New Year! And for those of you heading to Las Vegas, welcome to Accelerate 2017!!!

Every year Fortinet brings together thought leaders, technical experts, and IT professionals to share and learn the latest in network security technology. We’re looking forward to welcoming over 1500 partners, users, Fortinet experts, and executives to the Accelerate conference. And for the first time, Fortinet end users have been invited to participate in this annual event.

Accelerate always provides a unique opportunity to gain hands-on technical expertise, connect with security professionals and Fortinet executives, participate in interactive sessions, learn about Fortinet’s latest innovations, and find out what’s hot in security.

We have a great lineup of speakers and events arranged for this year’s event. The full conference includes

  • A pre-conference security workshop: “Fortinet Deep Dive NSE 7”
  • Keynotes from Fortinet and other industry leaders
  • Panel discussions with customers and partners
  • Instructor-led technical training sessions
  • Over 100 additional breakout sessions
  • The Accelerate Tech Expo, featuring Fortinet partners and experts

For those unable to attend, we will also be live-streaming content and interviews with Fortinet and other security leaders and experts on Tuesday, from The Cube media center located on the Accelerate main floor. We will also be providing daily blog updates, including keynote summaries, updates from the Tech Expo floor, panel discussion reviews, new technology announcements, and highlights of each day’s events.

Accelerate 2017 is being held at the chic Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas hotel and casino, and runs from Monday, January 9th to Thursday, January 12th.
