Quest Software Announces The Experts Conference Europe 2011

Frankfurt, Germany To Host Leading Microsoft Training Event Featuring Directory & Identity, Exchange Server, and Virtualization & Cloud Technologies


ALISO VIEJO, Calif., April 20, 2011 – Quest Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: QSFT) today announced the dates and location of The Experts Conference (TEC) Europe 2011. TEC Europe will be held Oct. 17-19, at the InterContinental Frankfurt, and will feature advanced technical training focused on enhancing the skills of the most experienced users of Microsoft® Directory & Identity, Exchange Server, and Virtualization & Cloud technologies.


“There is always strong interest in technical training in Europe,” said Quest chief architect and conference founder, Gil Kirkpatrick. “Given Microsoft’s decision not to host TechEd Europe in the region this fall, we expect the demand to be just that much stronger this year. TEC will fill the gap left by this popular conference, delivering unprecedented technical training depth and networking possibilities. It’s a tremendous opportunity for newcomers and veterans alike!”


 TEC Europe 2011 for Directory & Identity will provide advanced education on business-critical identity and access management (IAM) technologies including Active Directory®, Forefront™ Identity Manager (formerly Identity Lifecycle Manager) and Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS). TEC Europe 2011 for Exchange will offer intense, cutting-edge education on Exchange 2010, as well as powerful training on everything from Exchange Server 2007 development and scripting, to archiving, recovery and storage. The first ever TEC Europe 2011 for Virtualization & Cloud will feature expert speakers from the industry and Microsoft, who will cover management and roadmap discussions designed to prepare delegates for a future in the Cloud. A limited call for papers will be conducted. Interested presenters should email for more details.


TEC Europe 2011, presented by Quest and sponsored by Microsoft, follows TEC 2011 in Las Vegas, April 17-20. Registration for TEC Europe opens June 1. Early bird pricing, available until Aug. 12, is 1000 Euros. Standard pricing is 1250 Euros until Sept. 30, and late pricing is 1350 Euros, effective until the start of the event. To learn more about TEC Europe 2011, please visit and follow @TECconf on Twitter.
