Top 10 Reasons to Attend Ignite
Unless you’ve been camping in the Arizona desert, you’ve heard about our new Ignite: Powered by Syndigo series of events. And many of you have registered. However, for those who prefer “just-in-time” calendar scheduling, this is for you: The post to motivate, encourage, even… ignite your desire to register now! Based on our completely unscientific poll and analysis, we bring you the top reasons to attend The Ignite: Experiences Whatever it Takes virtual conference, June 3. Read the list and register!
#1 – An engaging and informative event, in a reasonable time frame
The struggle with many events is it’s hard to sign up and then block an entire day (day and a half, two days…) to attend a conference…Especially virtually, when you’re never really away from your desk. We’ve fixed that problem by compressing our event into a single half-day, from 12:30PM – 5:00PM Eastern. Get the information you need, in focused sessions…no filler!
#2 – 2nd Half is not the time to play catch-up
As we head into the second half of the year, it’s always to best to be a little ahead of the game. What better way to get ahead (or stay ahead) than the Whatever it Takes event? By offering specific actions you can take to deliver better content (and drive better sales), you will have the tools you need to accelerate your content performance through the end of 2021 and beyond.
#3 – Inspiring Keynote from a leader in Tech
Part of the reason to attend a conference is to spark ideas and hopefully gain a few that can spread like wildfire throughout your organization. That’s why we are proud to present Marita Cheng as our Keynote speaker. Marita is founder of Robogals, Aipoly, and Aubot, as well as being one of Forbes World’s Top 50 Women in Tech. As a serial entrepreneur who has a view towards technology in the future, she will definitely ignite our imagination.
#4 – It’s the best value around for thought leadership access
It’s an investment to put together an Ignite: Experiences event, even virtually. But we know it’s worth it to educate our clients. And for that reason, we pass the savings on to you – there’s no cost to attend the Whatever it Takes virtual conference!
#5 – Sector-specific knowledge
We’re not about a “one-size-fits-all” solution. We prefer to build solutions based on the way the industry works, with plenty of flexibility to meet many different business sectors. This year, we’ll be focusing on Foodservice/CPG, Hardlines, and Healthcare specifically in addition to our retail recipient panels. See what else we have in store.
#6 – GDSN Training!
It’s great for the good old annual checkup. Or, if you’re new to the industry, the business, or the data, it’s also great as an introduction. We’ve managed to book not one but two heavy hitters in the GDSN world, to walk everyone through what’s changed, and how you can make the most of your data pool.
#7 – Your travel budget won’t be impacted
Business is starting to open. Some are already returning to the office. And maybe business travel has started for you. But it hasn’t for everyone, and rather than worry whether everyone could physically make it to our event, we decided to go digital. It’s easier for you to schedule, plus you’ll be able to refer back to the recordings from the comfort of your home office. You didn’t want to go to Vegas yet anyway, right?
#8 – You’ll hear directly from recipients on what they need … and why
No matter what part of the content process you’re in – ingest, manage, syndicate, enhance, optimize – you know that your recipients control much of the content you want to get to consumers. It’s difficult to keep track, and even more when you don’t know what has changed. Our Whatever it Takes seminar will feature some of the top recipients across different businesses, with a panel discussion on how to be found online.
#9 – Exercise your brain, then exercise your body
Our “end-to-end” approach doesn’t stop with data… we know the value of physical exercise as well as mental work. And if this last year has taught us something about exercise, it’s that we’ve got to get moving! After you take part in our Whatever it Takes virtual seminar, be sure to also register for GS1 Connect 2021, where you’ll be Sweatin’ with Syndigo, featuring fitness guru Billy Blanks!
#10 – Your company will benefit from the knowledge you gain
We launched our Ignite series of events and activities for clients just like you, because we know a lot is changing, and it’s moving quickly. We know it’s in the best interests of the industry as a whole to have a well-educated supplier base. The sessions we present are aimed at you being able to come away with a deeper understanding and practical applications to your day-to-day work. And your company will be the beneficiary.
