Announcing Smartsheet ENGAGE
This September, a thousand representatives from the world’s most productive companies will convene at Smartsheet’s headquarters to learn from noted experts, share business best practices, and chart a course for collaborative work management innovation. Smartsheet ENGAGE - our inaugural customer event - will provide a forum for our 10 million registered users in more than 190 countries to hone their use of the Smartsheet platform and become charter members of a rapidly growing global community.
Registration for the event officially opened earlier today, and spaces are already filling up quickly.
The Winds of Change Are Blowing
The volume, velocity, and vectors of modern work have increased to the point that legacy applications consistently fail the people and organizations trying to solve today’s challenges with yesterday’s tools. And for those looking to implement cloud-based solutions to organize, update, share, and collaborate on a diverse set of work, the application landscape is complex, fragmented, and - for many - overwhelming. Add to that the rise of the remote workforce, generational differences among workers, and the ongoing digitization of almost every industry, and it’s no surprise that the collaborative software space is experiencing a period of unprecedented growth and change.
In light of this emerging landscape, organizational leaders need to ask a new strategic question: “How can we best enable the groups of people that make the work happen in our company to work better, together?”
The answer to this question lies in Collaborative Work Management (CWM), and is driving our sense of urgency to bring Smartsheet ENGAGE to life.
A New Answer, a New Market…and a New Annual Event
Smartsheet was founded over a decade ago with a vision to provide a way for teams and organizations to work together in a more connected, collaborative, highly-transparent way. With the emergence of the Collaborative Work Management market segment, we’re gratified that our original vision is being reflected in today’s market reality.
We’ve always promised to continually create a “game-changing” experience for new and existing customers. ENGAGE, our first-ever customer conference, is an exciting new aspect of this promise.
Smartsheet ENGAGE 2017: CWM’s Coming Out Party
Our first-ever global user conference will offer three jam-packed days that will bring together 1,000 passionate leaders, practitioners, and innovators from the Collaborative Work Management ecosystem. They’ll have the opportunity to learn, share, and build community with Smartsheet users from across the globe.
The conference will be comprised of thought-provoking keynote speakers and hands-on breakout sessions covering Smartsheet basic and advanced skills, the business value Smartsheet can deliver for organizations, and Smartsheet’s partner ecosystem. In addition to revealing exciting product announcements and offering one-of-a-kind networking opportunities, ENGAGE 2017 will provide you an opportunity to play a direct role in the future of our product and the part it can play in maximizing your organization’s collaboration and productivity.
Space Is Going Quickly
The demand for ENGAGE has been building and registration is already filling up. Make sure you have a seat at the table to learn from leaders in the industry as well as Smartsheet’s heavy hitters.
And stay tuned for more updates as we announce the full agenda and new speakers in the coming weeks.
We look forward to hosting you in September.
