Citrix Technology Professionals Program

The Citrix Technology Professionals (CTP) Program provides an opportunity for participants to gain deeper insight into Citrix strategies and technologies, including advance knowledge of planned projects. Awardees engage with Citrix leaders to help shape the future of cloud computing technologies that enable mobile workstyles, providing valuable input on business needs and feedback on product strategy.

2018 CTP applications for 2018 have closed. Applications for 2019 will open soon.


  • In-person meetings and private webinars with Citrix product teams for detailed discussions on current technologies and product roadmaps
  • Special incentives to attend or speak at Citrix Synergy and other events
  • Access to a private forum for discussions with Citrix product teams about technologies, product updates and priority technical support
  • Access to demo licenses of current products and to early releases of future products


The CTP Program recognizes the contributions of individuals who have invested a significant amount of time and resources to become experts in Citrix products and solutions. The wealth of knowledge they have developed - and more importantly, openly shared - has proven invaluable to the Citrix technology community.  These individuals have consistently demonstrated their real-world knowledge by:

  • Sharing insights on web sites and contributing to online discussions (e.g. Citrix forums, Citrix Developer Network)
  • Creating or fostering active communities of Citrix users (e.g. Citrix User Groups, Community Verified Citrix Compatibility)
  • Publishing technical documentation, articles, or books
  • Offering technical expertise in the field
  • Speaking at IT conferences
