Do you want to stay on top in a Game-changing world?
Knowledge is a critical driver to success. Experience is the best teacher.

IT360 is where IT Professionals and business decision makers get both Knowledge and Experience through in-depth conference sessions and an experiential exposition. Direct exposure to a variety of products, services and applications under one roof allows direct comparisons, thereby lowering risk and saving costly research time.

IT360 focuses on Key IT Pillars:
  1. Unified Communications/VoIP/Call Centers
  2. Security/Risk/Threats
  3. Data Centers/Cloud Computing/Virtualization/Storage
IT360 is your access point to information, resources and to growing your network of peers and advisors.

IT360 includes ITIL/Service Management certification(s) and OS certification(s). The prestigious CIO Executive Council will co-locate their annual Canadian regional event with IT360, adding education and networking value for C-Level and executive IT professionals.

Experience is the Best Teacher - IT360 is the Best IT Experience.

As usual the SIP will participate not only in it360° Trade Show but in the HiTech Career Fair.
