E2EVC Barcelona – The Expert to Expert Virtualization Conference (E2EVC) is a weekend for IT tech professionals that’s crammed with presentations, master classes, and discussions delivered by both virtualization vendors’ product teams and independent experts. E2EVC has been on tour in Sydney, New York City, and Prague, and their next stop is in Barcelona, Spain, held at the Novotel Barcelona City Hotel between November 17–19, 2017.

Parallels is a golden sponsor of E2EVC Barcelona, and we will hold our speaker session on Saturday, November 18, at 11:40 a.m. During this session, Yury Averkiev (Parallels Senior Program Manager) will introduce Parallels® Remote Application Server (RAS) and how it delivers windows applications and desktops to any device in a quick and easy-to-manage way.
