I am very pleased to announce yet another wonderful and very successful Kaseya user conference. Kaseya Connect 2013 was held April 29 – May 1 at the Four Seasons Las Vegas. Our largest user conference to date, we had more than 700 in attendance and 35 sponsors. Conference goers came in from 24 countries and as far as Australia, the United Kingdom, Netherlands, Sweden and Brazil.
Connect was packed with educational and fun events, including a golf tournament, insightful keynotes, customer presentations and expert panels, product demo sessions, an experts lab, vertically focused breakout sessions and a feature presentation by former professional boxing champion Sugar Ray Leonard.
Our goal for Connect 2013 was to bring customers, partners and industry experts together to share new ideas and best practices in IT systems management, learn how to get the most out of our award-winning Kaseya family of customizable ITSM products, discuss industry trends and provide a venue for peer interaction. I’m delighted to say we achieved all of these things. When polled following the event, 95% of attendees reported they had a better understanding of Kaseya technology and how Kaseya can help their IT operations and service delivery. Ninety-seven percent said they’d recommend attending Connect to a colleague.
In terms of sponsors, independenceIT (iIT) was a Platinum sponsor of the event and Autotask a Gold sponsor. Many other respected industry technology companies participated as Silver and Bronze sponsors, including Intel, Kaspersky Labs and Axcient. To see a full list, go to the conference site.
And don’t just take it from me, this is what others had to say about Kaseya Connect 2013:
“Kaseya Connect 2013 was a home run of positive, productive energy and real relationships! Kaseya’s renewed emphasis on personal relationships with their customers, and with their key third-party partner program allies, such as HEROware, made this event an extremely high ROI investment for us. Industry events should be about deepening relationships, creating new ones and forming a measurable sales ROI. By those standards, for HEROware, Connect 2013 hit it out of the park,” said Rob Ryan, president of HEROware.
“This was the most productive Kaseya Connect to date! Great speakers, great content and the opportunity for the industry experts to provide quality business content to assist Kaseya customers in growing their business,” said Larry Schulze, co-founder and principal consultant for The Taylor Business Group.
“Kaseya Connect provided me with a terrific opportunity to network with my peers. In doing so, I advanced my understanding of the Kaseya family of products and ultimately improve service to my customers,” an unnamed IT manager.
Kaseya Connect 2014 will be held April 14 – 16 at the Four Seasons Las Vegas – only 11 months away! See you there!
