/ 10 things you may not know about Domopalooza 2017

Domopalooza isn’t your average business conference. In fact, we named it Domopalooza because we never wanted it to be. Our keynotes and breakouts are always informative and inspiring, and our hands-on training is best-in-class. We work hard, learn the latest strategies and practices to optimize organizations, take time to kick back with some of the most popular musical acts around, and top it all off with skiing in the best snow on earth.

Whether you’re attending Domopalooza for the first time or returning to soak up more insights, education, and the awesome entertainment (and skiing) Domopalooza is known for, there are a few things you just might not know. Check out the list below to get all the details on this year’s conference.

  1. This year’s content will be customer-driven.

We could tell you all day how awesome Domo is, but that’s our job, right? So we’re going to let our customers tell you for us. This year at Domopalooza, we’re putting our customers center stage. Domo customers are changing the face of business. And they’re really good at it.

  1. There’s a Domopalooza app.

It wouldn’t be Domo if it weren’t mobile. From finding conference rooms to keeping track of your agenda, it’s all on the Domopalooza app. Download the app ahead of time and you’ll be perfectly prepped for a week of awesome at the Grand America Hotel.

  1. Some of the biggest brands in the world will be there.

We don’t want to namedrop, but we’re talking brands like Norwegian Cruise Lines, Big Squid, The Michael J. Fox Foundation, and Sears, just to name a few. They’ll be leading breakout sessions and sharing their Domo success stories. Make sure you don’t miss it!

  1. Even more will be sponsors.

Domo partners with some of the biggest and brightest companies out there. The Partner Pavilion is the place to learn about the brands, how they work with Domo, and network with other leaders and Domo users.

  1. We’ll teach you how to build apps.

There’s a lot that goes into making Domo the game-changing platform it is, but one of its most revolutionary features is the app ecosystem. This year’s conference features training sessions on how to build your own custom apps to run your business.

  1. Two full-day training sessions.

You asked, and we answered. A brand new feature at this year’s event: we’re now holding two full days of training sessions. Based on demand from last year, we’ve bumped up our training to include twice the workshops for you to get hands-on training in the Domo platform.

  1. Enviable entertainment.

After days packed with education and insights, it’s time to relax, network, and straight-up have a good time. Daily receptions and parties are a great place to meet people, and you definitely don’t want to miss the concerts. This year, Jason Derulo and Kesha will be hitting the stage, and even more musical acts are soon to be announced, so stay tuned.

  1. A day on the slopes.

They don’t call it the greatest snow on earth for nothing. No trip to Salt Lake City is complete without at least a few runs through our infamous powder at Snowbird Ski Resort. And don’t worry, if you’ve never strapped on skis or a snowboard before, we’ll set you up with rentals, lessons, and a lift pass—all included in your conference pass.

  1. Social media contests.

Domo is a social company, and Domo’s CEO, Josh James, believes the best companies are social companies. That’s why we always run amazing social media contests during Domopalooza. This year, we’re having daily and weekly winners, as well as an awesome grand prize. All you have to do is tag your posts with #DP17. Stay tuned for more contest details as we get closer to the event!

  1. It’s in the heart of Silicon Slopes.

Domopalooza is at the Grand America Hotel, right on Main Street in Salt Lake City. The rapidly growing Salt Lake area has turned into a booming tech community, known as Silicon Slopes, packed with some of tech’s biggest names opening offices here, and several successful start-ups (including Domo) who call it home.

Domopalooza is an event like no other. Mixing education, insights, and entertainment into one action-packed week, it’s more than just a business conference. See what else is happening at Domopalooza 2017.
