q.How many partners from my company can go to the training?
Fortinet understands the partners attending the XTREME will share knowledge back with their coworkers once they return to their office, on sessions that will better suit their internal schedule. Because of this, all invited Partners are scheduled to send 1 (one) engineer or sales executive to the training.
Companies wishing to send more than one engineer are welcomed to put the second and third engineers on waiting list. Should some of the invited partners not confirm before July 31st, 2019 Fortinet will notify of available seats to companies with engineers on the waiting list.

q.I do not have one of the boxes I need to bring to the training, may I get a discount if I buy it now?
Fortinet has an official policy and discount levels for demo boxes. Please ask your Fortinet representative about special discounts for demo boxes. Please watch on the lead times for delivery, so you can ensure the boxes arrive on time for the XTREME
q.My laptop has less memory / processor / disk than requested, can I bring it anyway?
a. The XTREME this year will heavily use Virtual Machines. If you bring less hardware than requested, you risk not having enough resources to do the labs, or falling behind due slowness on your laptop.
It is strongly recommended to bring as much disk, memory and processor as you can on your laptop.
