Acquia Engage Europe 2019 is taking place in Kensington, London on June 17th and 18th. Engage is the highlight of Acquia’s activity calendar focused on celebrating and educating customers as well as showcasing the stellar companies in our partner ecosystem that bring digital experiences to life.
Top 3 Unmissable Things to Do and See at Acquia’s Engage Europe 2019
After a very successful inaugural event in 2018, this year’s Engage Europe has more of everything: compelling content, networking opportunities and fun!
It was hard to limit it to just 3 but here are some of the top reasons to attend:
1. Learn and get inspired. Yes, every conference on the planet says this but where else can you get the kind of insight on Acquia and cutting edge Drupal development in two short days like you can at an Acquia event? Check out the full agenda. A few highlights:
7 keynotes from Forrester Research, our amazing partners like ORM, Acquia leadership like CEO Mike Sullivan, and CTO, Dries Buytaert with insights into the company’s future and product roadmap, and British Olympian Ben Hunt-Davis on insights for building a winning digital experience strategy
6 workshops for builders (aka developers), managers (aka IT), and optimizers (aka marketers) delivered by our very own professional services and technical account managers (the experts!)
2. Network with your peers (and get inspired). This year we have created even more opportunities for networking with other digital experience heros.
On the 17th we’ll be hosting extended lunch conversations with ‘birds of a feather’ roundtables covering industry trends and practical insights into topics such as preparing for Drupal 9.
Join our Women in Leadership Breakfast on the 18th June at 7:30 am to discuss issues common to leaders in our industry.
Visit our partner pavilion. Acquia’s ecosystem of accomplished partners will be on hand to discuss any and all digital experience aspirations with you. We’ll be joined by companies such as Big Commerce, Inviqa, ORM, Cohaesus, Access, Zoocha, Axelerant, Lingotek and Microserve.
Cheers, Santé, Chin-Chin, Proost, or Skål to you. We can’t have a celebration like Engage without a few parties. We’ll be hosting a welcome reception from 16:30 to 18:30 on the 17th and a closing reception from 17:30 to 19:30 on the 18th to mark the beginning and end of the official conference. Share a glass of wine or spirits (you’ll see) at our journey-inspired party
Join us for a fun run around Hyde Park. This year’s venue is a stone’s throw away from beautiful Hyde Park. What better way to start the day than with an energetic jog with your peers and to make new friends? Join us for a 30 or 45 minute jog before heading into the venue for breakfast at 8:30.
Celebrate our customers. Throughout the event we’ll be sharing and experiencing some of Acquia’s inspiring customer brands.
So clearly there are more than ‘just’ 3 things to do, see and experience at Engage Europe 2019. Hope you can experience it for at least one if not both days. Check out the full agenda here and let us know which sessions are you looking forward to?
