A Glimpse into AWS re:Invent 

For those who are new to AWS re:Invent or need a quick refresher, this conference is AWS's premier event, offering a comprehensive and immersive experience for cloud professionals. It's the perfect opportunity to get hands-on access and learn from AWS experts, whether you're a certified AWS pro or just getting started. You'll gain new skills, explore innovative use cases, and stay up-to-date with the latest developments in the AWS ecosystem. 

Who Attends AWS re:Invent? 

AWS re:Invent attracts a diverse and dynamic crowd, bringing together individuals and organizations from all corners of the tech world. In addition to the strong Amazon community, you can expect to meet enthusiasts, industry leaders, and representatives from renowned tech giants like Red Hat, Cisco, Accenture, TCS, Infosys, and, of course, Minfy! 

This global cloud community has been converging at re:Invent for over a decade to network, find inspiration, and foster innovation. Attendees can look forward to a wide range of activities, including: 

A. Bootcamps: These are designed to expand your understanding of AWS services and prepare you for certification exams. 

B. Breakout Sessions: Sessions are organized by experience level and led by AWS experts. 

C. Expo: This bustling floor is where networking opportunities abound, along with hands-on conversations and interactive demos. 

D. AWS Builder Labs: Here, cloud professionals and developers can experiment with AWS in a live sandbox environment. 

E. Partner Experience: Learn from stories of cloud-powered innovation and how AWS partners, including Minfy, harness the power of AWS Cloud. 


Tips for First-Time Attendees 

For those new to the AWS re:Invent experience, here are some essential tips to ensure you make the most of your time in Vegas: 

A. Book Your Sessions Early: The 2023 event will have a mobile app for scheduling sessions. Book your sessions as early as possible, as popular ones tend to fill up quickly. 

B. Overflow rooms: If you can’t get into a session, look out for overflow rooms - they have a large screen and headphones for you to watch the sessions that are taking place. Some of the overflow rooms will have multiple screens showing different sessions so you can session hop just by walking a few steps! 

C. Plan Your Accommodations: Given the vast event space, consider booking a hotel close to the venues where you plan to spend the most time. 



D. Network Aggressively: These events are fantastic for formal and informal networking. Don't be shy; introduce yourself, wear some eye-catching swag, and even schedule meetings in advance. 

E. Expect Crowded Shuttles: AWS runs shuttle buses, especially during busy times. Avoid getting into shuttle buses at peak time. We’d urge you to consider using one of the faster, albeit more expensive options (Rail, Uber, Lyft, etc). Comfortable shoes are your best friend for navigating the conference. 

F. Explore Vegas: While AI and the cloud are fascinating, take some time to explore Las Vegas itself. Whether it's dining at a special restaurant or visiting art museums, there's plenty to experience in the city. 


Book a Meeting Space 

One of the standout features of AWS re:Invent 2023 is the availability of bookable meeting spaces. From November 27th to November 30th at the Encore hotel, you can choose from a variety of reception and meeting room options to facilitate productive discussions and collaborations. Learn more.

What is AWS re:Invent? 

AWS re:Invent is often described as "the most transformative event in tech," inviting participants to "get inspired and rethink what's possible." With over a decade of history, this event delves into all things cloud computing, covering virtually every aspect of technology. 

Interesting tidbit: re:Invent is not just a conference; it's also the name of a 37-story office building at Amazon's Seattle headquarters. However, the event came before the building, with the latter opening its doors in 2019. The views from there must be incredible!
