“We’re thrilled to be assembling the best minds in data, technology and business into one content-rich event,” said Josh James, founder and CEO of Domo. “This is a brand new industry that will forever change the way people run their businesses, and there are some visionaries and forward-thinking early adopters who can teach the rest of us. We are bringing them together with hundreds of our customers to transform how we all leverage data and lead our companies through this revolution. Of course, we will match Domopalooza’s high-quality content with an overall experience that makes Domopalooza THE event that all strategic business executives will build their schedules around to attend.”
James continued, “There are very few business conferences where you experience learning moments that last, gain insights you can immediately apply and build life-long relationships and partnerships. Domopalooza is the can’t-miss, gold-standard event of thought leaders, data pioneers, visionaries, today’s CEOs and tomorrow’s CxOs. Domopalooza is the Fertile Crescent of making money and making careers.”
Whether presenting innovative Domo use cases, the latest trends in business intelligence and analytics, or lessons from business leaders, Domopalooza’s agenda is full of engaging content. Domopalooza will also feature personalized, hands-on training to help attendees get more from Domo and their growing universe of business data.
James added, “Attendees can be guaranteed an informative and highly addictive experience with unmatched networking opportunities and chances to learn from the best minds in the business. On the list of people to learn from, a big highlight includes several of our brightest customers, all from brands you will recognize. At Omniture, our conference became THE event for our industry. We intend to do the same with Domopalooza, however Domo is not applicable to just one activity in one department … this time we’ve created something that is applicable to your entire business and every single individual in it.
