At Information Builders, we love Summit season. Our annual user conference represents quality time to spend with our customers and partners, and with each other – celebrating the work that we do together and using our technology platform and products to build amazing applications that have the power to change the world.

This year Summit goes virtual on June 23-24. But that doesn’t mean we’re any less excited about it. In fact, the virtual setting gives us a new, flexible format and allows us to include more people from around the world. Plus, we have a ton of cool product news to share (including a grand reveal of big company changes by CEO Frank Vella that is sure to knock your socks off).

So yeah, even though we’re all remote this year, we still love Summit season and can’t wait to open our doors to the world and put on the best educational conference on data, analytics, and tech and business trends.

If you haven’t signed up already, let’s do this! And remember it’s all free. Customers and partners register once for access to all sessions.
