Dell to move annual conference to Las Vegas

Dell Technologies Inc. plans to move its annual users conference to Las Vegas in 2017 after holding it for six years at the Austin Convention Center, company officials confirmed Thursday.

The conference, which the company called Dell World before its acquisition of EMC Corp., is relocating to accommodate the larger number of expected attendees related to the EMC deal that officially closed on Wednesday. In May, about 12,000 people attended EMC’s users conference in Las Vegas compared with about 6,500 attendees at Dell World in 2015.
