Social Media & Webcast

If you are on Twitter, you can follow @Deploy360 and use hashtag #IONConf for all things ION. We live-tweet all the IONs, and update our Facebook and Google+ pages, too.

If you can’t be there in person, we’re hoping to webcast the event and will provide more information next week if we can work out the logistics. No matter what, check the ION Trinidad and Tobago pages after the event to find the presentations and video archives. We can’t wait for this event and we look forward to revealing the insights shared by industry experts.

We’re looking forward to seeing many people at ION Trinidad and Tobago and joining in the other CTU ICT Week activities. If you are in Port of Spain (or can get there), please join us!

P.S. And if you want to get started today with IPv6, DNSSEC or other topics, please visit our Start Here page to begin – why wait for the ION? Why not start now?
