We’re thrilled to announce that Information Builders’ annual Summit User Conference has been selected as a winner in the 2019 American Business Awards for Corporate Events. We believe that customer and partner relationships are the backbone of our company’s success. To honor and celebrate these relationships, Information Builders hosts its annual data and analytics user conference, which brings together more than 1,000 customers, press, industry thought leaders, speakers, exhibitors, and tech experts every year.


This year, we’ll be at the Rosen Centre in Orlando, FL, from June 4-7.


At Summit, attendees have plenty of opportunities to expand their knowledge in hands-on labs, sessions from the industry’s top analysts, sneak peaks of new technology, customer- and partner-led sessions, and much more. Bringing together professionals with different roles and from varied backgrounds to learn, share, and collaborate creates endless opportunities for innovation. For instance, the Summit Solutions Pavilion hosts third-party vendors who demonstrate complementary technologies that can help attendees further optimize their data and analytics environments.


While Summit is an ideal place for professionals to learn, the conference also caters to individual interests through sessions designed for every technical experience level. This allows attendees to branch out and be exposed to professional data practices they might not typically execute in their day-to-day role. Attendees can to explore a wide range of data and analytics, topics including visualization road maps, dashboard design, voice-based business intelligence (BI), big data integration, and custom applications and portals, to name a few. Additionally, conference-goers learn from other organizations how to improve their data strategies and create a data-driven culture through a plethora of customer success presentations.


While gaining knowledge through hands-on sessions and engaging presentations is a key part of Summit, Information Builders also puts great importance on providing attendees with the opportunity to personally connect with specialists across our organization. For instance, attendees have full access to the Customer Expert Center, where professionals can engage one-on-one with Information Builders’ solution experts.


Back by popular demand, Summit 2019 will host a Women in Technology Panel and Networking session. Additionally, to provide attendees with time to unplug and relax during the conference, we’re hosting two sunrise yoga sessions, offering fun giveaways, social networking events and a private off-site experience at Universal Studios. Summit is a conference that attendees will not forget.


Summit has something for everyone, but don’t take our word for it. Attendees advocate for the value they receive from the event. One attendee said, “Summit is the one must-attend conference on the calendar each year.” Another said, “There is something for everyone. Leaders can talk strategy, developers can roll up their sleeves and share techniques, and new customers can see a world of possibilities.”


Uniting employees, customers, partners, industry analysts, and other influencers, Summit provides an interactive forum to discuss the latest trends and innovations in BI and analytics. It is an event that cannot be beat!
