What benefits will IBM Business Partners receive?
Business Partners are critical to the success of Pulse 2013. Upon acceptance of your proposal, Business Partner speakers will receive an email directing them to the Speaker Kit website. This site will host all critical information about your speaking role, including guidelines to help you prepare your presentation and instructions about how to register for the conference. Business Partners selected to deliver a Pulse education session may be eligible for a complimentary full conference pass valued at USD $1,995. (Complimentary full conference registration does not apply to Business Partners speaking in an Expo Theater) After legal review of applicable laws, IBM will determine eligibility for a complimentary pass on an individual basis. Conference registration includes meals, education sessions, EXPO Solution Center, and networking events Sunday evening through Wednesday. Travel and living expenses are not included and will not be reimbursed. The complimentary pass for delivering an education session at Pulse is limited to one Business Partner per company per session. IBM will inform individuals of eligible status and provide any additional required documentation. We encourage all partners to check out the exciting Sponsorships and Marketing Promotional Opportunities that will give you priority consideration in building our speaking sessions. Your name and presentation will be posted on the conference attendee portal, and you will have the opportunity to present as part of the formal agenda. IBM Business Partner names and topics will appear on the event website and conference deliverables.
