Have you heard? If your LinkedIn feed hasn’t tipped you off already, in-person events are back! It’s been glorious to see people coming together again to network, learn, and let the good times roll.
Bringing our customers and partners together this year was a high priority for BeyondTrust, and we were thrilled to be able to welcome 250+ customers and partners from around the world in beautiful South Florida at the JW Marriott Turnberry in Miami for a week of knowledge sharing and fun! We hosted several hundred more attendees virtually by live streaming our main stage sessions so we could meet you where you are.
If you haven’t had a chance to tune in, here’s what you missed:
Monday, May 23
We kicked off Day 1 of our technical training. Attendees had the chance to complete full technical certification training on a product of their choice with a live instructor from our BeyondTrust University team.
For our non-technical partner attendees, a full day of sales training was on the agenda. Lead by our Sales Enablement team, partners learned the ins and outs of selling our world-class privileged access management solutions.
Tuesday, May 24
The training continued! An additional 8 hours of instructor-led training took place.
Of course, the fun didn’t stop there. We also hosted Partner Connect Day, which included several interactive sessions with our global partners to help us gain valuable feedback we can use to redefine how we work together. We also were able to recognize our top performing partners at our Global Partner Awards Ceremony.
That evening, we welcomed everyone at our Havana Nights Welcome Reception around the Cascata Pool.
Wednesday, May 25
We found the perfect way to start the day.
Once our minds and bodies were ready for the day, the how floor opened! Attendees got to immerse themselves in all things BT by visiting our demo stations, attending a live workshop, and checking out our integrations expo. To accessorize their immersion, attendees could also head over to our Swag Shuffle + Swag Store.
All eyes soon turned to the main stage for the start of the day’s sessions.
After lunch, our first keynote, Chris Krebs, took the stage, hosted by our very own Marc Maiffret.
That wrapped up the sessions for the day, but our evening was ushered in with a very successful Women in Tech Happy Hour and Book Signing with Tarah Wheeler.
Following the book signing, we all donned our best 80s attire for the Miami Vice Party and danced the night away to a retro cover band.
Thursday, May 26
For our Day 2 Keynote ,Tarah Wheeler, “white hat” hacker and author of Women in Tech, took the stage.
Next up on the mainstage was our Sponsor Session with SailPoint: Between Two Ferns.
Later in the day, we broke into product user groups for our technical audience, and our executive audience attended sponsor-led roundtables, before our three additional customers, Biogen, MyVest, and L3 Harris, took to the stage to share their user experiences.
Finally, attendees took to the Swag Store to cash in their pins for coveted BT swag. Congratulations go out to the three winners of the BeyondTrust Apple Watch and BeyondTrust Airpods: Gavin Duffy, Workday; Lauren Kemp, Ignition Technology; Neil Ramos, Jones Lang LaSalle
Looking ahead to next year, we are thrilled to be bringing the conference back to the JW Marriott Miami Turnberry in May with an all-new agenda. More details will be announced in the coming months, but if you need any help with budgeting to join the fun in person for 2023, please feel free to reach out to the team at GoBeyond@beyondtrust.com.
