In early November over 5,000 senior IT executives, including over 2,500 CIOs, will meet in Barcelona to attend Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2012 – a global gathering of industry professionals charged with re-thinking and re-imagining what IT means to the enterprise.

Traffic will be constant throughout the four-day event, and across each of the hundreds of sessions, attendees need to be able to print key information easily, quickly and securely. At Xerox, we quickly recognised this need, and agreed to provide our Mobile Print Solution as a service to all delegates.

We’ll be placing over 17 ColorQube 8870s with mobile print around the show. You’ll be able to find them within all the key exhibition areas, at each of the Gartner’s interactive kiosks and at the Hilton Diagonal Mar Barcelona hotel. So when you need that meeting agenda or boarding pass at short notice, with only your mobile to hand, we’ve made sure that you won’t be caught short.

The importance of being able to print from mobile devices securely has grown exponentially over recent years, and with hundreds of analyst sessions, workshops and roundtables taking place at the Gartner Symposium, access to the right materials at the right time is key.

Xerox MPS will allow users to utilise their smartphone, tablet or laptop computer to print these critical documents as and when they are needed. How does it work? Simply email the document, receive the secure confirmation code, and then enter it onto the appropriate device when you’re ready to print.

We provide mobile print to businesses across the globe such as Procter & Gamble and have recently launched a Xerox Mobile Print Portal app. Users can download the app onto their smartphone or tablet, giving them the ability to locate printers near them, change print settings, preview and print documents on the go.

As ever, we will be providing a dedicated support team on site to ensure the entire process runs smoothly. Just look out for the lavender shirt!
