VMblog: As a Citrix Synergy 2018 sponsor, give us the rundown of your booth setup this year. How can people find you, what's your booth number?
Henning Volkmer: ThinPrint will showcase a host of new solutions and make a number of announcements from booth 406 right next to the Citrix booth. We can't share all of the new things, yet, but when the door to the Exhibit hall open just look for the orange wall with the ThinPrint logo. Our team is right there ready to share exciting news or answer any of your questions.

VMblog: Do you have any tips for first time attendees that you'd like to share?
Volkmer: Come visit us! Plan ahead there are way more interesting and fun things to do than there is time. Focus on what's most relevant for you but also try something new. Use the online networking tool to set up meetings. Be ready for a lack of sleep and lots of information and excitement at the same time.
VMblog: Attendees always enjoy a good trade show tchotchke. Are you guys giving away anything special or interesting this year?
Volkmer: It's spring so we're bringing cool new T-Shirts. There's also an Apple HomePod in our booth that's waiting for a lucky winner and the Citrix Ready Team will raffle off a Philips Hue Smart Lights starter kit among the participants in the official Synergy game.
