It's amazing, after the difficult years of 2020 and 2021, we are so glad that in-person events and conferences are back. It has been fantastic to see customers and partners face to face at various events this year such as STAR East, Agile DevOps West, JFTL, EuroSTAR and Swiss Testing Day. While we enjoyed attending these events, of course, the conference dearest to our hearts is InflectraCon. Thanks to everyone who attended InflectraCon 2022, in this article we'd like to give a big "shout out" to our partners who attended the Partner Dinner and Partner Summit.
InflectraCon is Inflectra’s global user conference that took place this year on May 5-6th in Washington, DC, the home of Inflectra headquarters. This year’s event featured Spira training, four great keynotes, two full, substantive conference tracks with speakers from around the world, and a Partner Summit.
We were fortunate to get to spend some excellent, quality time with our partners. We kicked off the event on the evening of Wednesday, May 4, with a partner dinner at The Prime Rib in DC.
The dinner gave us the chance to mingle in person with people we typically see over Zoom, and the staff at The Prime Rib took excellent care of our large crew.
Thursday ushered in talks, networking opportunities, and the Partner Summit. The morning session started with an ice breaker, where participants introduced themselves, stated their company, where they are personally located, and provided a fun fact about themselves (the on-the-spot fun facts never fail to be funny!).
We then proceeded to hear from Adam Sandman, Inflectra CEO, on an overview of Inflectra and where we’re headed from both tools and a company perspective in 2022 and the years to come. He also discussed the state of the industry as acquisitions, mergers, and new tools impact the market. Partners learned how to navigate the partner portal, and we engaged in open discussion on tool features that are helpful for specific industries.
The afternoon session focused on an Inflectra sales and technical boot camp for partners who may be more focused on sales engineering than technical implementation. We enjoyed having time to spend specifically with our partners in the Partner Summit, and we look forward to doing something similar at InflectraCON 2023!
That evening, Inflectra members and attendees dressed up in festive attire for the Star Wars-themed happy hour and networking event. The DJ provided some excellent local sound; The themed backdrops provided opportunities for fun photos; The food and wine kept everyone merry. People then headed off to dinner or to the rooftop bar at Union Market.
Friday afforded us a chance to meet with several of our partners one-on-one to discuss more in-depth marketing strategies, business opportunities, and plans for 2022, 2023, and beyond. The “Partner Minute” at Friday’s lunch allowed partners to describe their business in 60 seconds, which was informative and fun. At the end of the day, conference attendees gathered for a raffle of prizes from partners who also sponsored InflectraCon. We wrapped up with a final session, and partners and attendees proceeded on their way.
It was sad to say goodbye, but we are buoyed by the success of the conference. We are thrilled to see our partners again at InflectraCON 2023, if not before...
Meanwhile, thanks so much for our partners for attending:
