A short note to let everyone know that I’ll be heading to Dubai later today to participate in Pythian’s exhibit in the Business Solutions Hall.
For those of you who haven’t heard of it, GITEX is like COMDEX for the Middle-East – it’s literally the third largest tradeshow in the world where COMDEX is #1 – and it’s big, really really big, like 120,000 attendees big.
I would like to invite everyone who plans to attend GITEX this year to stop by and visit me. Our new COO Roger Hatch will also be there, as will our VP Sales Martin Wisniewski, so there will be no shortage of company executives on hand to discuss your database infrastructure issues and how Pythian might be a help. Or we can just shoot the breeze!
If you’re already in Dubai and want to attend, please send me a note at [email protected] (I’ll have my blackberry) and I’ll hook you up with one of our free guest passes if I have any left.
If you’d like to find us, we’re in the Business Solutions Pavilion, Hall 6 Stand C6-40, right near the cafeteria (so we hope for good and varied passers-by!), and between Oracle and SAP. Oracle is a huge presenter at this show, as is Microsoft, but MySQL does not yet attend. If you are a MySQL customer and at the show, I have a very good idea of the services on offer over there now (thanks to a budding partnership between us – more to come on that later) and you can drop by at the Pythian booth to find out how Pythian and MySQL together might be able to contribute to your database administration strategy.
Hope to see some of you there.
