Why Attend Container World 2017
A Unique Networking Experience
Our fundamental purpose is to enhance your learning through peer-to-peer networking and connect you with like minded individuals. Container World offers 1-2-1 facilitated networking services, a VIP meet and greet service to match potential end user customers with the right technology vendors, an evening socializing with a meet-up and drinks, scavenger hunts, an awards ceremony and many more interactive features!
Not Just Technical Talks
The event will explore a plethora of topics, equipping business leaders and technical teams with the ability to say ‘yes’ to turning those business ideas into reality. The two day event will kick start with a dedicated container training day. Then after giving detailed insight into building and scaling with containers, the event will bring together two streams of end user case studies from the business and IT decision makers investing in container technology, and the technical teams rolling out containers into production.
A True Ecosystem Event
Container World is a true ecosystem event, addressing the strategic implications of containers and the associated trends as they disrupt the cloud market.
It is the first event to clarify the business impact of the container revolution currently taking place within enterprise IT. It will also unpick and resolve the limitations of the transformative technology.
Real-World Case Studies
Hear in-the-trenches stories from the innovative companies and start-ups who are already deploying containers in production. Learn about the challenges they faced and the advantages they’ve gained around security, networking, orchestration, and beyond.
Hands-on Technical Education
Bring your laptop to our pre-conference workshop and get hands-on instruction on developing and running containers, along with advanced composition and orchestration in the cloud.
Demos & Test Drives
See the latest technological advances in Containers, Micro-Services and Cloud Native from the leading players and cutting-edge start-ups.
Container World is the only independent conference & expo to bring together the entire Container and Cloud ecosystem. It will debate the important issues surrounding container adoption in order to improve, advance and drive the adoption of containers in the enterprise.
Parties & Networking
Connect with your peers over drinks at the Container World party and meet-up, at speed networking sessions, hosted lunch tables and more.
Case Study Led Event
Container World is the only event to present case studies from Business Decision Makers and IT Ops Heads, as well as DevOps Leads and Engineers from the technical teams rolling out container technology in practice. Unlike vendor led events, Container World gives an agnostic platform for established and startup technology providers.

A Full Day of Pre-conference Training
