This year’s ConnectCentral, held November 12-14 in San Francisco, offers three packed days of education, connection, and conversation. We will be highlighting how communications and collaboration technology can unite people, businesses, and ideas in ways previously unimaginable.
While some might consider the opportunity to visit San Francisco reason enough to attend this year’s show, our 2018 slate of sessions, keynotes, demos, and parties provides plenty of added reasons to book your reservation. (For those who haven’t previously attended ConnectCentral, be sure to see all the highlights from ConnectCentral 2017 to get a sense of the scope of what’s become the premier cloud communications and collaboration event in the industry.)
In particular, here are our three top reasons to attend ConnectCentral 2018:
Insights from expert speakers
Keynotes at ConnectCentral are all about providing uncommon points of view and unique approaches to problem solving that spur new ideas for our attendees. This year’s speakers boast an impressive track record in that regard. Our featured keynote speaker, award-winning author Malcolm Gladwell, will bring his out-of-the-box perspective to ConnectCentral, as will our other keynote presenters, Reshma Saujani, founder and CEO of Girls Who Code, and futurist and best-selling author Jacob Morgan.
Detailed and focused breakout sessions are a hallmark of ConnectCentral, giving attendees an opportunity to leverage the perspectives of their peers, industry experts, and key RingCentral executives. The agenda contains topics ranging from strategies for transitioning to cloud technologies, maximizing platform value, to trends in collaborative communications.
If you have a story to tell, submit your speaker application by August 31.
For specific instructions on RingCentral products, RingCentral University sessions offer excellent hands-on training and best practices to help customers maximize the value of RingCentral solutions. Last year, more than 180 attendees responsible for managing their organizations’ product and solutions experiences participated. Two levels of classes will touch on everything from troubleshooting to deeper networking issues.
Connections with peers and industry leaders
Networking is one of the most important aspects of ConnectCentral 2018. On November 12, RingCentral will host a night of cocktails, music, mingling, and more at the Mezz in San Francisco. We’ve also scheduled a networking event and scavenger hunt on November 13.
This is sure to be a great event. Check back for more updates or visit connectcentral18.com.
