“Since 2013 we have attended over 10 Magento events, including 4 Magento Imagine conferences in Las Vegas, NV. Each event is a great opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with known Magento experts, partner with other Agencies and Magento Industry Partners, and discuss your questions with Magento representatives.
We always create a list of speakers that we want to listen to and write down all the interesting ideas that we think will be useful for our company. These ideas are then discussed internally, and some of them are selected to be implemented at our company or for our clients. Lastly, it is worth mentioning that evening parties are a great place to meet new people, have some drink and simply relax. After all, conferences are not only about work but also about having a great time ;).”
