Attending the Summit
Q: Who should attend AWS Summits?
Whether you are new to the cloud or an experienced user, you will learn something new at an AWS Summit. These events, held around the world, are designed to educate new customers about the AWS platform and offer existing customers deep technical content to be more successful with AWS.
All AWS Summits feature a keynote address highlighting the latest announcements and customer testimonials, technical sessions led by AWS engineers, and hands-on technical training. You will learn best practices for deploying applications on AWS, optimizing performance, monitoring cloud resources, managing security, cutting costs, and more. You will also have opportunities to meet AWS staff and partners to get your technical questions answered.
Q. Where should I stay?
We are able to offer a discounted rate of $339 per night at the Hyatt Regency Santa Clara. Space and rates are subject to the hotel’s availability. If you are unable to book in the block, there are numerous hotels to choose from near the convention center.
Q: What information will be shared with sponsors?
If you offer to have your badge scanned by a sponsor or at a sponsor-branded session, you are requesting AWS share your name, email address, country, title, and company with that sponsor so it may contact you by email for marketing purposes. This is optional - you may choose not to offer your badge. For questions, please refer to the AWS Privacy Notice.
