BriForum is the only independent conference of its kind to provide a vendor-neutral perspective on current and emerging technologies and services in today’s marketplace.

At BriForum we lay it all out for you, whether you’ve been down this road before or you’re just beginning the VDI journey.

BriForum celebrates its 11th year in 2015 – and it promises to be the best one yet! Now that virtualization is getting more and more traction in the field, the timing of this event could not be better.
