This week, I’ll be attending Gartner’s Symposium/ITxpo 2008 in Orlando, Florida. Jason Hiner, TechRepublic Editor-in-Chief, and Larry Dignan, ZDNet Editor-in-Chief, will also be covering the event. Gartner expects nearly 6,000 attendees to attend the event’s keynotes, presentations, one-on-one meetings with Gartner analysts, and the expo show floor. I’ll be gathering information on three critical IT trends–virtualization, unified communications, and the consumerization of IT. I’ll also be scouring the ITxpo show floor for interesting products and services.

I’ll be posting updates throughout the show. If there’s a particular topic or vendor that you’re interested in hearing about, post a comment in the IT Dojo discussion forum and or send me a private message. I might get to every special request, but I can always follow-up after the show. If you’re attending the show, feel free to flag me down and chat.
