Save The Date For S4x24
4 – 7 March 2024 at the Loews Miami South Beach
S4x24 Call For Presentations Opens June 15th
S4 is …
Optimistic … Forward Looking … Creative … Driving Change
Set free a conservative, slow moving, change resistant community to discover new ideas and come up with innovative ways to use these new ideas to deploy secure, resilient and better ICS.
After a Covid caused cancellation of S4x21, S4 came roaring back with a record 800 attendees and warmth of spirit at S4x22. S4x23 in February sold out with 1,100 attendees, and this will be the attendee limit for S4x24. More important than the numbers were the percentage of new and diverse talent we are seeing and the spirit that has been maintained at S4 despite the growth from 40 people in a small room in 2007.
The best way to understand how S4 is different is to come to the event. The second best way is to ask someone who has attended, obviously we are biased. S4 is not for everyone. If you are an early adopter, like to be on the leading edge, or enjoy hearing, considering and creating new ideas, then there is a good chance S4 will be a great event for you.
