S3 13XPO S3 Events

S3 13XPO Round Up

19/07/13 | in: Event Roundup

In celebration of S3’s 25th anniversary this year the annual S3 XPO hit the road and the event was held in 3 fantastic locations across the UK:

  • Porsche, Silverstone
  • DoubleTree Hilton, Leeds
  • Royal Horseguards, London

The theme of S3 XPO 2013 was ‘doing more with less’ with 16 of our valued partners exhibiting and presentations from Hitachi, Symantec, Tintri, Arkivum and EMC. Along with a presentation from S3’s Technical Director, Mark Smith.

We kicked off on the 12th June with a brilliant event at Porsche in Silverstone, where the agenda included a high adrenaline passenger ride around the course in a Panamera GTS.

Two weeks later, we travelled up to Leeds where business was turned in to pleasure with a summer BBQ served on our private outdoor terrace overlooking the canal.

S3’s Road show came to a conclusion in style at the fantastic Royal Horseguards Hotel in London on the 10th July. Attendees were lucky enough to enjoy drinks in the sun on the terrace followed by a BBQ while cruising down the River Thames.

Celebrating 25 Years

Having an exciting cross section of vendors in attendance gave our guests the chance to learn about a range of topics including Big Data, Cloud and Archiving whilst enjoying a day out of the office. At Solid State Solutions we strive to provide the best of breed products and services from a wide range of partners and vendors and S3 XPO helps us to do this.

“Many thanks for a great day, there was a good mix of vendors, it was extremely informative and very useful. Thanks again.”
- Paul Thompson – Serco

“Thanks for a greatly informative day, it’s good to get a catch up with all the new storage technology out there.”
