Vendor Showdown

Platinum, Gold and Silver Sponsors

Unique to ISC High Performance and to be experienced exclusively onsite in Hamburg, the Vendor Showdown Session comprises an afternoon of high-level presentations by industry powerhouses in computing, networking, data and storage in Europe, Asia and North America (Platinum, Gold and Silver sponsors). Each speaker has a few minutes to present their organization's newest strategy, product or research developments. A panel of expert moderators then asks each speaker a few in-depth, follow-up questions. The speakers have only five minutes to offer their responses—on the spot in front of the audience.

Speakers may present a maximum of three (3) slides 

  • One slide about the mission / introduction of the company
  • One slide about their HPC product portfolio 
  • One slide about "Why do their products help to meet the mission? What does that mean for the customers?"

Please submit your speaker information and your presentation (three (3) slides) no later than April 15, 2022 via Linklings.

Submission Process

Stage 1 - speaker information

Stage 2 - presentation slides

The moderators will review the slides and will send the questions to the speakers one week before the event so that speakers have time to prepare.

In lieu of conference proceedings, presentation materials will be provided to ISC 2022 attendees via the digital event platform Swapcard. Your Vendor Showdown presentation slides will be provided for download.

Speakers who do not submit slides by April 15, 2022 will be disqualified from participation in the Vendor Showdown!

On-site Presentation

The Vendor Showdown will take place on Monday, May 30 from 1:00pm-3:15pm in Hall 4 (ground floor) and Hall G1 (second floor). The schedule will be published in March. As this is an industry session, it is open to all attendees. 

All speakers must be present on-site and registered in order to gain access to the session room (either an exhibition badge or a conference badge – both grant access to this session).

The slides will be integrated in one master PowerPoint. Time will be pre-set so the slides will advance automatically.

The Vendor Showdown audience will be given an opportunity to vote for their favorite speaker and the winner will be announced at the end of the session.  All speakers should plan to stay until the end of their session, so they can accept their award if chosen.

Please contact with any questions.
