    Event: International Service Management Days

    This event aims to reach service management professionals worldwide and bring them content from any service management framework. The free events will follow the sun over two days, and participants may view the international content at any time or on-demand. As you can imagine, creating a global conference is challenging due to the “follow the sun” nature of the event. There will be a 10 AM keynote in 4 areas of the globe: NY, London, Sydney, and Bangalore, which translates to two “prime time” keynotes in most areas. Breakout tracks will be held at designated times for these locations.
