AWS Summit is jam packed with activities you can participate in outside of the breakout sessions. We encourage you to partake in the activities as an opportunity to network with peers and AWS team members. After a hard day of learning, be sure to join the networking drinks being held in the Solutions Pavilion, which follows the last sessions of the day.

The Ask an Architect booth is a place where you can get a 1:1 session with a member of the AWS Solutions Architect Team. The AWS tech experts are here to help with the AWS foundational questions and the highly technical ones tied to your specific use case.

Discussing your use cases and architectural requirements with an SA (Solutions Architect) can help make sure that you are properly leveraging AWS services and are deploying scalable, resilient, cost-effective solutions in the cloud.

Please be aware that the Ask an Architect meetings happen on a first come, first serve basis. During the session breaks there might be a queue.

Meet AWS Marketplace and Try Software Applications

Did you know that AWS Marketplace offers hundreds of free trials on popular third-party software products? Free trials cover the cost of running software in AWS Marketplace, but the AWS Marketplace team wants to do even more! Visit our Sponsors booths, that have AWS Marketplace logo on it, and get $25 per visit after the event, to offset AWS infrastructure costs.

How It Works?

It's easy! Stop by the booth of exhibitors that have products on AWS Marketplace and ask about their offer of solutions during the event. Each exhibitor that you visit, would reward you with $25 AWS Credits after the event. Look for participating sponsors with a Marketplace logo on their booth.

At this event, AWS Executive leaders and customers will showcase the incredible customer’s outcomes that Partners are delivering on AWS. You will also learn more about the AWS Partner Network, hear from subject matter experts and network with your industry, AWS and APN peers.
