Top 7 reasons why you need to be at CA World 2017

Join us in Las Vegas to discover how to remove the barriers between your ideas and business outcomes – and have some fun while you’re at it!

It’s that time of the year again – we’re gearing up for CA World in Las Vegas! There’s a lot of exciting stuff on the agenda this year. Here are some reasons why you should definitely join us at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino on November 13-17.

1. Gain a competitive edge through Pre-conference education

There are over 400 sessions where you can make the most of your investment in CA solutions. You can, for example, jumpstart your agile learning with hands-on training from certified experts at the CA Agile Academy, or distinguish yourself from the rest of the crowd with CA Certifications. Check out what’s available and pick your favorites from the Session Catalog.

2. Get inspired by the speakers

Hear first-hand from barrier breakers, idea champions and tech pioneers who have been in your shoes. Besides CA’s own line up of keynote speakers (CEO Mike Gregoire, CTO Otto Berkes and CPO Ayman Sayed), you’ll be able to tune into what trailblazers like Jimmy Chin (mountaineer, skier and filmmaker) or Richard A. Clarke (Former National Coordinator for Security) have to say.

3. Explore the exhibition center

Expo floor is where it all comes together. Hear from industry visionaries and leaders in state-of-the-art Cineplex theaters, enjoy snackable content from customer and partner speakers at TechTalks, or conveniently meet with CA Subject Matter Experts at SmartBars.

4. Network with your peers

CA World is all about networking, and we’re providing plenty of opportunities to connect with your peers! The fun thing is that you can catch up with old friends and make new connections while exploring the sights and sounds of five wondrous locations from around the globe. How about a wild west campfire for telling tales by s’more stations, or a night in Paris mingling by the Eiffel Tower eating French pastries? It’s all available at the end of Day 1 at the exhibition center. Like previous years, we’ll also have a Women’s Forum networking event for women in tech.

5. Pedal for purpose with Trek-Segafredo

Trek-Segafredo Experiences at CA World ’17 will include the exciting CA Pedal for a Purpose charity ride for Help us double the mileage – 1500 miles collectively – and we will double the donation to $100,000 benefiting STEM schools impacted by Hurricane Harvey and Irma. Ride a minute, a mile or more or bring a team of five to ride for 5+ miles and you’ll receive a Trek-Segafredo t-shirt. Join Mike Gregoire and more than 200 cyclists as we experience The Ride at Lake Mead with Trek-Segafredo for your chance to ride with a 2-time Olympic champion Fabian Cancellara.

6. Rock out with chart toppers

We’ll close the event with the No Barriers bash, where you can rock out and chill out with chart topping bands Counting Crows and Third Eye Blind.

7. Discover how to remove the barriers between your ideas and business outcomes.

The main reason for coming to CA World is gaining a competitive edge in your business. There will be plenty of opportunities to learn how to create a modern software factory to ensure your company is built to change. You simply need to be there, so let’s get your trip approved.
