SNIA European invites the storage industry to have its say at Storage Expo
SNIA launches its Storage Audit in Birmingham

London/Paris – 9th October 2002 – The Storage Networking Industry Association Europe (SNIA-E) today has announced its activities at Storage Expo, Birmingham (16-17th October 2002).

The SNIA will be launching one of the most comprehensive marketing research program ever conducted in Europe. Storage professionals will be invited to have their say. This will be done in concert with SNIA Europe activities at Stockage in Paris and the Storage Networking. Storage professionals unable to attend the event are also able to make their opinions know via the SNIA Europe website at

Gill Borniche, Marketing Chair for the SNIA in Europe comments: ”The SNIA is focused on providing the support and leadership to the storage community and this is an opportunity to find out exactly what are the burning issues for end users and resellers. ”

The SNIA is also presenting a keynote at 10AM on the second day of Storage Expo (17th October). John Taylor, Chair of the SNIA Europe UK committee will discuss the future of Storage Networking. The benefits of networked storage have been well publicised, but many end users are hesitant. The SNIA's mission is to promote the adoption of networked storage solutions like NAS and SAN, and key to this is the development of standards such as the recently announced Bluefin Storage Management Initiative.

In addition, attendees will be able to address questions to the SNIA Europe on the panel discussion on 'Who needs a storage strategy?'. The roundtable takes place on October 16th at 12pm. The panel includes members of the SNIA, the end user, reseller and vendor storage communities.
