Over the past few months we’ve been working on putting together the program for the 2017 Ingeniux User Conference. Our goal this year was to make 2017 really stand out by bringing in great speakers, providing in-depth and unique knowledge about Ingeniux software, and adding exciting new features like workshops and a new approach to Lab Sessions.
Take a first look at the NEW Ingeniux User Conference with 5 key reasons you should attend this year’s event.
Get to Know Experts and Influencers
You know the drill. Every year we bring in industry-leading keynote speakers and guest experts to provide cutting edge insights into the world of web experience management. At the conference, you’ll have the opportunity to hear from these experts, ask them your questions, and meet them face-to-face after their sessions.
Last year we were thrilled to have Karen McGrane (RazorFish, New York Times), Derek Featherstone (Simply Accessible), and Scott Hunter (Microsoft) join us for keynotes. This year you can expect more amazing speakers in fields like user experience, design, content marketing, and web development.
We’ll begin revealing our guest speakers soon. In the meantime, check out these keynote interviews from last year:
New Opportunities to Sharpen Your Ingeniux Toolset
This year’s conference program won’t disappoint. We’ll deliver the inspirational presentations, unique learning opportunities, and good vibes you’re used to. However, we’re also changing parts of the program and adding on entirely new aspects.
Read on to understand why we’re calling it the NEW Ingeniux User Conference!
As usual, conference attendees can add-on two days of training prior to the conference. Training will take place September 25th and 26th. Don’t miss these unique training sessions! It’s a great way to start the week and gain some new knowledge to take into the conference. Training details will be announced soon.
And now for something we’re very excited to announce: Conference workshops!
For the first time, we will be offering an additional day of workshops after the conference ends. Join us on Friday September 29th for a full morning of hands-on learning with Ingeniux experts. This is a truly unique opportunity to dig in with Ingeniux trainers, developers, and product designers. Discover how you can improve your web initiatives with Ingeniux and take something tangible back from the conference to present to your team.
Friday workshops are not included in the price of registration and can be added on to your conference experience at an additional fee. We will be announcing workshop details later in the spring of 2017. Stay tuned!
Finally, due to popular demand, we will be extending the length of Lab Sessions at the conference. This year, we’ll offer three, two-hour Lab Sessions on Thursday afternoon. Attendees can choose which Lab to attend for the entirety of the afternoon. Each Lab will offer a two-hour intensive session on a topic, and will include hands-on exercises.
Be Heard and Make a Difference
We love hearing from our customers at the conference, especially because that's where we often get our best ideas for where we can take our products. The user conference is the best way to get your ideas, feature requests, and feedback heard.
Come out to Seattle and chat with Ingeniux executives, product designers, developers, and product managers. We can't wait to hear your thoughts on the future of web experience management!
Feed Off the Energy of Like-minded Individuals
This year we will host two networking events: The Opening Reception on Tuesday September 26th and the Networking Party on Wednesday September 27th.
The Opening Reception will take place at 5:00 PM at the Pan Pacific Hotel in a new event space that just opened this year! Arrive a bit early to register and collect important information and materials for the conference. Then, enjoy the open bar and tasty snacks while you get to know the Ingeniux community and gear up for the conference. Don’t forget to grab your swag bag, a bottle (or two) of Ingeniux wine, and get your name in early for a round of Shuffle Board!
The Networking Party is our annual conference bash. In the past, we’ve held this event at venues like The Garage and a private suite at Safeco Field. This year, we’re planning something truly special for our conference attendees. Party details will be announced this summer!
