    The Hippodrome de Saint-Cloud thoroughbred racecourse is an official historic monument located in the heart of Paris. Opened in 1901, it hosts a number of important races throughout the year, including the Group One Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud, and was used for polo events during the 1924 Summer Olympics. The facility is renowned for its beautiful grounds and beach-themed activities, as well as delicious French cuisine. Following the Paris Technology Summit, attendees will experience an innovative and avant-garde display of molecular gastronomy, creating amazing treats together with expert molecular chefs.

    BlueStar designed the Pan-European Technology Summit series to further unite vendors and resellers in the spirit of innovation and shared learning experiences. Fostering such relationships among manufacturers, software solution developers, VARs, and the BlueStar Europe Team is key for collective growth in 2013. Additional targeted educational summits are scheduled across multiple countries throughout 2013. Cities include Barcelona, Spain; Dusseldorf, Germany; Stockholm, Sweden; and Lisboa, Portugal. Each one-day Technology Summit consists of educational presentations, TechZone and networking opportunities. The popular and exclusive “Tomorrow’s Solutions” Rooms will also be part of the 2013 technology summits, where resellers can experience private product demonstrations from top vendors.
