As many of you know, last month we wrapped up our 11th Advantage conference in Nashville! The event was once again an incredible success that delivered immense value to our customers and partners. Attendance at the conference grew by more than 30% this year, and we had more customers and partners attend than ever before.
While onsite, we were told numerous stories by our Sage Intacct customers about the ways they will be able to take what they have learned at the event back to the office and make a meaningful change to their business. We also received a significant set of comments that Sage Intacct customers and partners are truly seeing the positive impact Sage’s investment is having in the new Sage Intacct, and how it is enabling us to do more for all of them.
At the start of the week, the Sage Intacct Partner Summit had over 750 attendees, plus our customer hands-on training track. The hands-on training aspect of the conference was like conducting an on-line University, with the industry’s best professors, with thousands of companies spun up by the operations team to support the students. Additionally, the 120 classes scheduled throughout the week were all sold out – what a terrific undertaking for our customers benefit!
The Partner Summit remains a major part of the conference that attendees look forward to every year. Our VAR/ SIAP and MPP partners (we had over 50 MPP partners that exhibited during the show) continue to rave about our partner programs and how we help them achieve business success. Both the Channel team and Business Development teams demonstrated how much they care about their partners, and consistently exhibited the Sage Intacct values throughout the conference.
Each year, we walk away from the conference with a renewed excitement for what we have built and what lies ahead. Together, we are leading a tremendous movement in the industry, taking our customers from being historians, who reported the past, and now enabling them to be futurists that can leverage their financial data in powerful ways to drive growth – both for their business and for themselves.
To all those who attended, thank you for another wildly successful Advantage, and we hope to see you next year at Sage Intacct Advantage 2019 in Las Vegas, October 21st-25th. Be sure to check out the recap video of Sage Intacct Advantage 2018 here!
