Personify, the leading solution provider that empowers the best constituent-focused organizations to succeed, wrapped up the 18th annual PersoniFest Users Conference in San Diego last week. PersoniFest gives Personify staff, clients and partners the opportunity to interact face-to-face and work together to overcome challenges and discover solutions to help them operate more efficiently.
Personify President and CEO Eric Thurston kicked off the event with a company update announcing nearly 100% sales growth in the past year with a promise to remain committed to client success and innovation. Thurston also used the gathering of approximately 400 industry professionals to formally announce the release of PersonifyGO, the next generation browser interface that extends the Personify360 platform to any laptop, tablet or browser with Internet.
In an effort to deliver varied learning opportunities, PersoniFest offered an expansive program, including training boot camps for both beginner and advanced users, a full day dedicated to developers and power users, and over 50 sessions across six tracks:
- Collaboration and Engagement
- Reporting and Data Quality
- Leadership and Strategy
- Trends in Technology
- Training (Hands-on and Instructional)
Sessions include ample opportunities for clients and staff to learn about the latest technology and share best practices in constituent management and engagement.
“Between the training sessions, meeting with the Small World Community team and chatting face-to-face with other Community Managers, I had incredible takeaways from PersoniFest 2017. The event helped to transform my way of thinking about online community and identify key growth opportunities for Specialty Food Association’s community,” said Andrea Meyer, PersoniFest attendee and Small World Community user.
PersoniFest 2017 also had a record number of partners and sponsors in attendance, demonstrating Personify’s position as the leader in interoperable solutions and a vibrant ecosystem of integrated partner solutions. At the conclusion of the conference, Personify announced that PersoniFest is headed to Austin, Texas, April 8-11, 2018.
“Creating engagement and valuable learning opportunities for our clients has always been a priority for Personify. Bringing together our clients at PersoniFest to share their experiences, assembling industry experts to present on best practices, announcing new product capabilities, and providing free consulting and training in person are all key elements of a successful user conference. We look forward to another great event in Austin next year,” said Michael Wilson, Personify Chief Marketing and Strategy Officer.
