Published By Lauren Wood

We’re just one week away from Planview Accelerate – our largest and most comprehensive customer event in company history. For the last 24 years Planview has hosted this conference to bring our customers together to share their stories, network with their peers, talk with Planview experts and level up their skills across all of Planview’s products. This year, we’re hosting the event on a virtual platform – which means we’re able to share this event with a much larger and more global audience. In fact, we have attendees registered from 45+ countries across the globe! If you are new to Planview or a prospective customer, here is everything you need to know about the Planview Accelerate conference. 

What is Planview Accelerate?

Planview Accelerate 2021 is a completely virtual event committed to providing an immersive, interactive, and engaging experience for Planview customers and industry stakeholders. Attendees will have exclusive access to industry leaders and Planview executives for engaging keynote presentations, Q&A roundtable discussions, customer sessions, networking opportunities, and so much more. 

What to Expect?

Presentations at this year’s event will focus on ways organizations can effectively navigate the ever-changing business environment. These sessions will be led by industry leaders, including:  

  • Planview’s CEO, Razat Gaurav 
  • Planview’s Chief Product Officer, Louise Allen 
  • Representatives from Planview’s diverse customer base, including speakers from Accenture, BakerHostetler, NatWest and Vodaphone 

This year, we’re thrilled to announce two additional keynotes:  

  • Keynote Speaker Nick Fry, former Chief Executive Offer of Mercedes F1 and UK Business Ambassador 
  • A customer panel on the theme of “Transform Your Business,” featuring Dell Technologies, IBM, NatWest, and Wolters Kluwer 

To see all the sessions and other industry expert speakers check out the agenda before the event to stay up-to-date on the latest and greatest expert presentations and panel discussions. 

Why should my organization attend?

Planview would not be here today if it were not for our customers! This conference is for our customers and driven by our customers. By attending Accelerate you can gain insights from industry experts in how our technology has helped grow their businesses with engaging stories and product roadmaps. There will be over 55 breakout sessions, including Customer Stories, Product Previews, and Product Management Sessions. Also, we have set up Learning Lounges with hands-on demos and Q&A with Planview Experts and Partners. 

But do not take our word for it! You can see a full list of customers speakers that will share their journeys of where they started, where they are now, and what the future holds with the Planview solutions. Plus, there will be a live chat to ask questions during the customer sessions, roundtable discussions, and Planview product support available throughout the conference! Not to mention, this is a terrific way to network and level up your Planview skills.  

And do not worry, it is not all work; we have scheduled time for fun with experiential activities and live music!
