SDL Connect 2019

By Abby Schachter

Burlingame, CA is a chock-full of SDL lovers right now. Are you attending #SDLConnect2019’s 2-day event?

It’s so easy to feel overwhelmed when attending a conference. There are new people to meet, notes to take, and old colleagues to catch up with. Although a jam-packed schedule can be fun, it will leave you with very little time to:

  • process what you’ve learned
  • network
  • take a break
  • explore
  • enjoy yourself

Unlike many conferences, SDL Connect focuses on creating the ideal setting for nurturing connections. They do this by broadening networks through a very thought out, extremely user-friendly agenda.

Business Luncheons

Who doesn’t love a lunch and learn? Gather info, mingle, and get a bite to eat? Yes, please. One luncheon that caught our eye is specifically geared towards women – The Women in Localization Luncheon. Looks like we’re not the only ones who thought it looked great … it’s already sold out. This one demonstrates the rise of females within the tech industry and the need for more panels and events like this one.

Well Thought Out Breaks

Each event has been spaced out enough so that you have dedicated networking and downtime. Grab a coffee, meet up with a new connection, or make one without having to rush to your next session.

Test Out New Tech

Want hands-on experience with a new technology? SDL Connect’s Innovation Center focuses on providing demos. Stop by and test out:

User Groups

This event allows you to sit in on a discussion forum where leading experts provide presentations and open sessions to discuss a number of topics concerning SDL Tridion Docs and Sites. Participants are encouraged to share experiences, ask questions, and share best practices. You’re not only learning and networking, you’re collaborating as well.

If you’re looking to gain insight within the tech industry and network with people from all over the world, Burlingame is the place to be right now. For updates on #SDLConnect2019, follow our LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter.
