Connect with Acquia at MautiCon 2020

Acquia is excited to announce that we are sponsoring and speaking at MautiCon 2020, the first official world conference for the Mautic community. As an all-virtual global event, MautiCon will bring together speakers and attendees from all over the world to share their experiences using Mautic’s open marketing automation capabilities to grow their businesses and improve the ways they reach their audience. Since Mautic launched in 2014, the project's mission has been to give everyone the ability to build personal, meaningful relationships with customers on any channel through open source marketing software shaped by community-driven innovation. When Acquia acquired Mautic Inc. in 2019 to form the world’s only open marketing cloud, we made a firm commitment to supporting and accelerating the growth of the Mautic community. 

MautiCon will feature a diverse range of topics and presenters from marketers to content strategists to developers, designers and more — all of whom believe in the power of open marketing to do more with digital experience. As an open source community, Mauticans believe that technology should be accessible for everyone, and our community has a wide reach, with Mautic spanning 35 different languages. The MautiCon agenda includes talks in English, Japanese, Italian, French, Portuguese, Spanish and German. To make sure as many people have the opportunity to participate, the event will kick off early in the morning on November 17, 2020 and continue all the way through to the evening with recorded sessions available to registrants post-conference. 

Mautic Community Panel

You won’t want to miss the panel hosted by the Mautic Community Council that will give our community an opportunity to ask questions about Mautic’s future roadmap and upcoming initiatives. Join me and fellow council members, Dries Buytaert, Norman Pracht, Radu Zlatianu, Ekke Guembel and Leon-Elias Oltmanns on November 17 at 16:00 UTC to get an inside look at the progress we’ve made so far and the exciting things yet to come

Later in the day, Drupal Founder and Acquia Co-Founder and CTO, Dries Buytaert will also host a session exploring his own journey with open source and the vast potential for open source to drive change around how businesses create innovative customer experiences.   

Here’s an overview of where you can connect with Acquians at MautiCon 2020.

Digital First as the New Normal

When: November 17, 21:00 UTC

Speakers: Karen Wood, Sr. Director, Product Marketing, Acquia Marketing Cloud

Since COVID-19 permanently changed the way people live their lives, the way brands engage with their customers must change as well. We can no longer lean on in-person experiences to build relationships with customers. Now, digital channels are the most-effective, most-practical way for many brands to engage with customers. That means brands need to embrace digital transformation and move fast to adapt to the changing needs of the marketplace. In this session, you can see how industry leaders are making their own digital leap, what they’ve learned along the way, and how their experiences can inform your own transformation.

With the rise of COVID-19, the world has shifted to a digital-first reality, forcing brands to adapt their engagement strategies and forcibly shift transactions online. Join us to learn how you can leverage the Mautic Community to refine your digital engagement strategy to create meaningful and shoppable moments to thrive in a digital-first world.
