AppDirect Engage 2019
With customers and employees distributed throughout the Americas, Europe and Asia, AppDirect chose centrally located Montreal as its host city in 2019 for Engage, its annual user conference. In addition to its international roots, Montreal is home to AppDirect’s largest office outside its US headquarters – and the local team was eager to show off its city with customers, partners, fellow employees and prospects.
The mild weather was perfect for kicking off the week with a Fun Run and hike up Mont Royal, and a Welcome Reception that evening outdoors on the deck of the newly renovated Fairmont QE Hotel. Guests dined on Montreal specialties including a poutine bar, smoked and cured meats, paired with locally brewed beers. An espresso-making robot, courtesy of partner ABB, helped keep guests both in awe and caffeinated.
AppDirect led the group through its vision for Digital Transformation, exemplified by 10 Digital Heroes who are using technologies that not only are changing their businesses, but setting examples for their respective industries. Speakers on the mainstage included telecom, manufacturing and financial giants who demonstrated real world results from AppDirect products – and a product showcase helped make those results more tangible.
The events were capped by a closing party at L’Auberge Saint-Gabriel where AppDirect’s favorite team activity, karaoke, brought the house down!
