The 2014 Symposium Experience

This year’s Symposium turned out to be quite invigorating.

We hope that you were just as inspired by the innovative discussions, informational keynotes, educational sessions and networking opportunities as we were. With so many great insights on new and upcoming Sitecore features, there’s no doubt this will be a huge year for all things Sitecore. Now that it has been a month since Symposium and the dust has settled, we wanted to take a moment to revisit a few key highlights from the Symposium experience.

Michael Seifert, Sitecore’s CEO, geared his keynote presentation towards the power of experiences. He stressed that by getting to know your customers on an individual level you can better formulate a more powerful, resonating experience. Our newly launched Accelcor Suite, a collection of solution accelerators built for Sitecore users, focuses on actually that. If you didn’t have an opportunity to demo the suite at Symposium, this short whiteboard video will get you up to speed. We were ecstatic to have the opportunity to showcase these new tools at our Symposium booth. CMS Wire also took the opportunity to share their thoughts on the launch.

Day 1: The Aware team arrived in Vegas excited about the conference and the official announcement of the Accelcor Suite launch.

Opening keynotes and conference education introduced attendees to the first round of Sitecore news.

Our team sporting the latest Accelcor Suite t-shirts, which were quite the popular giveaway items at our booth.

It was also our third consecutive year to present at Symposium, and we were thrilled to have the chance to present alongside our client Uponor. We discussed how Sitecore, Adaptive Print Studio and Digital Briefcase were utilized to fuel growth and scalability in this growing omnichannel market. AD Tech Press took a moment to recap our Uponor case study, and you can view that here.

Trevor Olson, President & CEO of Aware, presented along Don Costello, Web Products Manager at Uponor North America, on ‘Leveraging Sitecore to Fuel Growth and Scalability in an Omnichannel Marketplace.’ 

Of course, no Symposium experience would be complete without the post conference activities and the opportunity to network with likeminded members of the Sitecore community.

Aware hosted a kickoff party that followed Sitecore’s welcome reception on Monday evening.

A few members of the Aware team took an opportunity to mingle with a more unique member of the Sitecore community – a jester!

The Aware team had a blast during Symposium. It was great reconnecting with clients and making new connections within the Sitecore community. Our excitement for the next event is already brewing!
