Attend next year to find out how to shape the future of your company with intelligent transformation at Lenovo’s largest corporate event.

For the very first time, we combined our largest annual Americas partner event, Accelerate, with our flagship global business event, Transform, to bring you one all-inclusive event: Accelerate, and sold it out! Business partners and customers, along with Lenovo experts came together to discover, collaborate, and improve the technology industry from the inside out. With more solutions, products, and deep-dive breakout sessions than ever, this was the best time to attend Accelerate, and we plan on making it even better next year in Las Vegas on June 16-19, 2020!

Where inspiration and innovation meet.

At Accelerate we bring business partners and customers together to network, collaborate, and experience the latest in Lenovo’s breakthroughs.


We strive to program breakout sessions with information that attendees can bring back to their companies and use to set the tone for the year. In 2019 we offered first looks at our cutting-edge new technologies and insight from our top experts on a range of topics from implementing intelligent transformation for better employee experience, to implementing AI in data centers and video surveillance.


Additionally, we experienced entertainment only Florida can provide—a night at Universal Studios, a carnival, delicious food and drinks, and Barenaked Ladies! View the highlights of Accelerate 2019 and make sure to join us next year in Las Vegas!
