We've selected seven Interop presenters that will make it worth a trip to Vegas. You'll be so absorbed in tech, you won't even notice the glitter.

Many might be lured by the prospect of escaping the Polar Vortex that has swallowed most of North America this season, or the promise of winning large sums of money while being served free drinks by scantily clad waitstaff.

The conference, held at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center from March 31 to April 3, offers big-name keynote speakers and a flashy exposition floor.
