NEW YORK, Jan. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TabTimes, the reference news source about the tablet business and tablets for business, announces the second edition of its flagship business and IT conference. After its successful debut in New York last year, it will be held this year on both the East and the West coasts: TabTimes TABLET STRATEGY West will premiere in San Francisco on February 20, while TabTimes TABLET STRATEGY will be held in New York on April 30.

"Many attendees at our first conference were from the Silicon Valley and asked us to hold a similar event closer to home," says TabTimes CEO Patrick Pierra. "Expanding our one-day event to both New York and San Francisco will allow a larger number of IT and mobile decision-makers to share their tablet experiences with their peers."

Under the theme "Putting tablets to work," both events will feature experts in enterprise mobility and app development, and leaders of businesses who have deployed tablets to empower their employees.

Conference attendees from all over the world will hear case studies of organizations having deployed iPad and other tablets. They will meet other business and IT managers involved in tablet projects within their enterprise - in sectors as diverse as healthcare, finance, sales and education. They will discuss technology, security and management issues related to tablet adoption by employees and executives, through sessions such as:

  • The challenges of managing a tablet project
  • In the field: How tablets empower mobile workers
  • At the workplace: How tablets are replacing the office PC
  • The next step in BYOD: How can companies reap bigger rewards and fewer setbacks
