Three Reasons to Be Excited About Super Forum 2017

By Rob Wenger posted Sep 11, 2017 04:11 PM


In DC the humidity is finally receding, the leaves are beginning to change … must mean Super Forum is around the corner!

We always look forward to Super Forum and work hard to craft a unique event each year. A few things are going to stay the same—the venue, the networking opportunities, a fun party, SWAG!—but we have a few new items up our sleeve.

So what is going to make 2017 different from all the rest? Here are the top three things I’m looking forward to:

  1. Keynote Speakers Like Never Before

    We have two awesome keynote speakers lined up this year. First, we have Wharton professor, best-selling author and word-of-mouth marketing guru Jonah Berger, who wrote : Why Things Catch On and Invisible Influence: The Hidden Forces that Shape Behavior. He’s going to talk to us about why certain things go viral and why it’s not so random after all—and tricks for you to implement in your own community.

    Our second keynote speaker will talk to us about big data and how statistics can help us predict future behavior. Brad Klingenberg, VP of Data Science at Stitch Fix, a startup in San Francisco, is traveling all the way from Silicon Valley to teach us about the power of big data and what exactly a ‘data scientist’ does.

  2. Extended One-On-One Time

    One of our favorite parts of Super Forum is connecting with customers, learning about how they use our products and helping them get the most out of Higher Logic. From what we gather, this is also a highlight for our customers as well! That’s why we decided to extend our annual one-on-one sessions to make sure everyone who needs dedicated time with our professionals has access to it. Super Forum is all about learning and connecting and we want to make sure you can get the most out of it.

  3. Learn About New Products

    2017 has been a very busy year for us. We acquired two companies—Socious and Workspace—and have have been building out product features as well.

    First, I’ll take everyone through what we did in 2017, from product releases to our acquisitions of Socious and Kavi. This is a great time to make sure you’re aware of all our new features and taking advantage of them!

    Next, Edward English, our Chief Product Officer, will talk about new product releases we’ve been waiting to announce at Super Forum. We are almost done finishing up some products we’re really proud of and think our clients will find helpful. He’ll also outline a roadmap for where we plan to go product-wise, making sure all our clients know what’s ahead.

Will We See You There?

So, what are you waiting for? Will we see you in Arlington on October 15-17? Be sure to buy your ticket now so you’ll be there for all the exciting things we have planned.
