Another successful European SharePoint, Office 365 and Azure Conference is now behind us! This year’s edition was held in Copenhagen and featured over 2,000 European and Global experts in Microsoft technologies for business. WEBCON is thrilled to continue supporting the ESPC and Microsoft community as the main partner for the fourth year in a row.
The ESPC is Europe’s largest conference dedicated to Microsoft’s SharePoint, Office365 and Azure technologies, and brings in IT experts and users from Europe and around the world.
This year’s ESPC was without a doubt the largest and most rewarding one yet! Over 130 speakers delivered expert sessions, sharing their knowledge, experience and the newest trends they’re observing in Microsoft’s technologies for business. These included Microsoft management and decision makers, MVP/MCM experts, IT directors, and SharePoint, Office365 and Azure influencers.
Among the experts in attendance was “the father of SharePoint”, Microsoft VP Jeff Teper. He launched the conference with his keynote “SharePoint, Microsoft 365 and the Modern Workplace”
A digital transformation is key to the success of every organization – small, medium, large, education, government, corporate – every organization’s got to transform to respond more quickly to their customers in the market. And the number one ingredient in that digital transformation is a modern workplace. One where you can interact and engage and empower employees to do a better job for your organization, for its stakeholders and bring their best effort and passion every day. And what SharePoint does is provide a foundational set of service that powers lots of experiences that are essential to the modern workplace.

WEBCON pros join the world-class seminar schedule
The mission of WEBCON is to turn businesses into leaders in the digital transformation, and to share our knowledge and expertise for those ready to begin their own. During this year’s conference, WEBCON delivered two expert sessions demonstrating the potential of Rapid Application Development (RAD) platforms, and perhaps more importantly, how to convince management to implement SharePoint projects in their organizations.
Our first expert session was delivered by Michal Rykiert, Partner Account Manager and pre-sales Consultant at WEBCON. In “How to Get Executive Support for your SharePoint Projects” he shared practical tips on how to prepare for this discussion, and how to ensure a successful completion.
Next, WEBCON VP and CBDO Lukasz Wrobel delivered “Change is the New Black: How to Design Future-proof, Process-centric Business Applications Backed with Instant Change Management”, sharing what the digital transformation really means, and how to make the best use of it to build competitive advantage. Specifically, he showed how easily businesses can build dedicated applications in WEBCON BPS, and use InstantChange™ technology to ensure they’re always ready for whatever the business environment throws at them.
WEBCON at center stage during the ESPC at Bella Center Copenhagen
Our team of dedicated experts could be found at the center of the show floor throughout the event, helping visitors test the capabilities of our WEBCON BPS platform, showing them how to quickly and efficiently build business applications, and best practices for managing business practices.
ESPC attendees were also the first to see the premier of WEBCON BPS 2019, the newest and most revolutionary version of our platform yet. Deep integration with Office365, an intuitive and responsive new interface for users, ultrafast search, and powerful new AI technologies are just some of the many new changes we’ve implemented.
We always say that nobody inspires us more than our clients. The innovative ways they use WEBCON BPS are a source of constant inspiration, and drive us to continuously improve the platform and give them even more tools to accomplish their goals. It was in this spirit that we prepared a special Case Study for ESPC attendees, showing how international leasing firm ALD Automotive realized their digital transformation strategy with WEBCON BPS.
It wasn’t all work and no play, though! Among the attractions was our photography contest, which challenged entrants to be as creative as possible with photographs of themselves in our famous WEBCON Superhero t-shirts! The winner received a GoPro3 camcorder, and three runners-up got JBL speakers!
In addition to the contest, we also had on-hand our newest Superhero t-shirts, anti-stress decision cubes, and our Instax camera that helped capture some of the event’s most exceptional moments!
An Unforgettable Night at Cirkusbygningen
The ESPC came to a close this year with a spectacular performance at the Circus Building (Cirkusbygningen) on Axel Torv in Copenhagen, built in 1886 and home to more than a century of circus performances!
We are proud to have supported the ESPC again, and are looking forward to seeing all of you SharePoint superheroes next year!
