With over 1,600 participants and a stellar speaker line-up, the European Collaboration Summit 2018 in Mainz was a great success, and WEBCON is proud to have supported the event as the main partner.
WEBCON was the headlining partner of the first European Collaboration Summit 2018 in Mainz (May 28-30), a community event dedicated to digital collaboration. This year the event broke attendance records, with all of the over 1,600 available seats being sold out! The theme was focused on change management in the digital transformation era.
The two-day event offered 103 sessions on 6 expert tracks, revolving around “what is new” and “best practices” for Microsoft’s products for business, including SharePoint, Office 365, Azure, Skype and Project. The speakers were mostly members of Microsoft’s product teams, MVPs, MCMs, and other experts in the field, with a total of 62 professionals from 20 countries and 5 continents. The keynote was delivered by Microsoft’s Director of Product Marketing, Dan Holme, who spoke on the latest improvements in SharePoint.
We loved the positive feedback we received from our expert session, which was dedicated to the principles of agile, future-proof business applications. WEBCON’s expert, Michal Rykiert, discussed workflows and forms, standardization and re-usability, as well as the ever-present topic of code vs no-code.
The ECS conference was also a great opportunity to meet our partners. Special thanks and acknowledgments go out to Net at Work, and their wonderful representative Ingo Zimmerman. Ingo supported our team as an on-site expert, answering questions about the features and capabilities of WEBCON BPS, especially in the field of business process automation.
Throughout the conference, we had a constant stream traffic at our booth! Thank you to everyone who stopped by for the inspiring discussions about the technical challenges of the digital transformation, including workflows, forms, integrating ERP with SharePoint, as well as the digitization and automation of specific processes. Visitors to WEBCON’s booth who posted a photo while posing with WEBCON’s Superhero also received a one of our famous t-shirts. Fashion made easy.
WEBCON’s Chillout Zone was the hangout place-to-be of the conference, with sun decks and beach balls. With WEBCON BPS automating workflows and notifying you only when necessary, it’s no wonder it was so easy to relax!
We also appreciate the social media buzz that was generated during and after the conference (especially the photos with our Superhero). It was great to see so much interaction and knowledge exchange throughout the social media ecosystem. It felt great to be part of this fabulous, lively, and ever-growing SharePoint family!
Finally, we would like to congratulate and thank the organizers, especially Adis Jugo and Matthias Einig who were critical to ensuring the success of the show. We’re looking forward to seeing even more of you at the next edition of the ECS in Mainz next year! Will you be a SharePoint Superhero and help us break this year’s attendance records?
