Highlights from the Ingeniux User Conference 2019

The Ingeniux User Conference, which took place July 24-26, 2019, brought us three days of informative sessions, great networking opportunities, and enlightening keynotes.

Each year, the conference gives us an opportunity to connect with Ingeniux customers in-person, listen to their feedback, and get to know the Ingeniux user community. Looking for the full gallery of conference photos? Look no further!

Let’s take a look back at the 2019 event…

The Opening Address

On Thursday morning Ingeniux President and CEO, Jim Edmunds, welcomed attendees with the Opening Address and Keynote.

In his presentation, Jim touched on the importance of the Ingeniux user community – and the conference for bringing this community together each year.

Jim then went on to provide the Ingeniux Product Roadmap: a “bird’s eye view” of where Ingeniux software and products are heading.

Conference Program Highlights

The conference program featured two additional keynotes this year:

Breakout sessions in our Strategy, Development, and Solutions Track covered a wide range of topics, including website accessibility, technical documentation delivery, headless content management, content strategy, SEO, .NET Core, front-end development and much, much more.

Ingeniux User Conference Programming

The Pre-Conference Workshops, which took place Wednesday, September 23rd, were a huge hit this year. We offered two workshops: Finding Site-Wide Success with Ingeniux InSite Search & Create, Code, Deploy: Mastering Your Dev Environment. Both workshops sold out prior to the conference.

We are blown away by the feedback we’ve gotten so far on this year’s conference program and look forward to bringing an even better line up to 2020’s event.

Eat, Drink, Network… and Put-Put

As always, we kicked off the conference with the Opening Reception on Wednesday evening. After check-in, attendees enjoyed drinks, snacks and a fabulous view of the Space Needle from the Pan Pacific Hotel.
