Who Attends Engage?
Engage is built for all Acquia customers, partners, and prospects who have a hand in digital experience and asset management – whether you're new to the industry or have years of experience. Past attendee roles include C-level executives, digital marketing managers, marketing technologists, digital asset managers, technical architects, web developers, and more.
Why should I attend Engage?
Along with ample opportunities for networking, Acquia Engage programming is designed with the needs of business leaders, marketers, and technical practitioners in mind. Hear the latest digital strategies and tactics from industry peers, connect with the best and brightest from global brands and agencies, and gain practical and effective insight into today’s top digital challenges.
How does Acquia Engage differ from DrupalCon?
DrupalCon provides a forum for the larger Drupal universe – capturing the hearts and minds of the technical community – including developers, themers, and designers. While Acquia Engage does include tracks and sessions focused on building digital experiences and what’s next for Drupal, the primary focus of the conference is digital business strategy. It is intended to bring together business leaders, marketing professionals, technical management, and practitioners.

Can Acquia partners participate?
Yes, partner organizations can participate in several ways:
Become an event sponsor and enjoy enhanced prominence at the event along with multiple opportunities to engage a dedicated audience of Acquia customers and community members. Complete this form and we'll be in touch to discuss options.
Non-sponsoring partners, including digital agencies, implementation partners, resellers, and partners who are also customers of Acquia products and technologies, can participate by adhering to the predetermined ticket limits associated with the non-sponsoring partner ticket. Those partners are welcome to enjoy the added benefits of the Partner Summit associated with the Engage event. Each non-sponsoring partner is allocated a maximum of 2 tickets per company. This allocation is agreed upon to ensure the best value and experience for our partners and event underwriters.
In some cases, all partners may be excluded from a portion of the Engage event agenda. This is especially true in the case of the sponsored workshops. The only partner that may participate in that activation is the the sponsor of that program.
Please note that partners who exceed their allocated ticket limits or fail to adhere to this rule may have their ticket purchase refunded without notice. We appreciate your cooperation in maintaining fairness and maximizing opportunities for all partners to participate in Acquia Engage.
Furthermore, it is important to highlight that any partner or organization offering a competitive product, solution, or set of services to Acquia products and technologies may be excluded from Acquia Engage and the Digital Freedom Tour without explanation.
For more information on partner participation, ticket allocations, and any further clarification, please email [email protected].
