DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, September 4, 2012: Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world's leading provider of open source solutions, announced today that it will host a seven-city tour of two-day partner conferences, kicking off on September 17 in Stockholm, Sweden.

The agenda for this road tour has been designed specifically for business leaders, sales, pre-sales and business development representatives from Red Hat’s channel ecosystem in EMEA. This includes Red Hat business partners, distributors, resellers, solution providers, global system integrators, Independent Software Vendors or organisations that have a vested interest in Red Hat solutions.

Delegates will hear from Red Hat product experts in multiple breakout sessions and keynotes. Topics cover the entire Red Hat product and service portfolio including cloud computing, virtualization, middleware and storage. Attendees also have the chance to meet with event sponsors IBM and Symantec.

“Symantec is delighted to sponsor the Red Hat Partner Road Tour, this is a clear sign of a shared commitment to enabling customers to have confidence in the protection of their information as they modernise their data centers and build resilient private clouds,” said John Brigden, Senior Vice President, EMEA Sales at Symantec. “Our sponsorship is the continuation of our strong focus on open source technologies and our relationship spans engineering, marketing, support, and of course sales groups in both companies. The new jointly-developed solutions are designed to harness the power of Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Symantec storage and availability solutions to deliver higher availability and increased agility, while helping organisations deploy business-critical applications with confidence, through a strong engagement of our respective partners.”

Following feedback from last year’s EMEA Partner Summit in Dublin, Red Hat is keen to provide a mix of large conferences and smaller regional events to its partner ecosystem. This tour provides a focus for the Red Hat partner community in the run up to the EMEA Partner Summit in September 2013.

“We recognise the value to our partners of providing content, training and networking opportunities with other Red Hat stakeholders,” commented Petra Heinrich, Vice President, Partners and Alliances, EMEA. “As we develop our business into the burgeoning markets of cloud, virtualization and storage, it is important that our partners understand the potential in their regions. This road tour is therefore invaluable to our business and that of our partners.”
