Why ASG’s Virtual EVOLVE20 Conference Will Be Our Best Yet

The countdown begins: ASG’s annual EVOLVE customer conference is just months away! Taking place on October 6-7, EVOLVE20 will be ASG’s biggest interactive, virtual and complimentary event to date. The conference will bring together senior executives, IT and business practitioners and industry experts to discuss how organizations can power their digital transformation journeys, all while prioritizing the health and safety of ASG’s customers, partners and employees.

EVOLVE20’s theme is “See the Future—Be the Future: Leveraging Traditional Solutions while Embracing A Modern Approach” because it speaks to the balance many companies are struggling with today. The COVID-19 pandemic has required every enterprise to react quickly and think creatively – despite still dealing with the same ongoing IT challenges. It is more important than ever that organizations take advantage of the right tools to ensure they are protecting their business, while continuing to push boundaries and digitally transform. In fact, digital transformation played a major role in preparing many enterprises for the pandemic – from enabling remote work to making information available digitally. EVOLVE20 will bring together ASG’s customers and partners to share the deep industry insights and expertise that enterprises need to move forward.

How will a virtual conference be different?

 

EVOLVE20 will deliver all the value of ASG’s past customer conferences but in a new, digital format. While nothing can truly replace having all our customers and partners in one place, virtual events offer their own unique benefits. Here’s a glimpse into what EVOLVE20 attendees will experience:

  • Live and On-Demand Sessions – 85% of EVOLVE20 breakout sessions will be delivered by our customers and partners, such as BNY Mellon, Citizens Bank, Cerner, Zia Consulting and many more. One benefit of going virtual is that ASG will be recording the sessions, so if attendees can’t make one, or are interested in two sessions during the same time, they can view the on-demand version later.
  • Keynotes by Thought Leaders – EVOLVE always has an all-star lineup of speakers who deliver fascinating keynotes on the future of the industry. This year will be no exception – stay tuned as we announce who our keynotes will be this year.
  • 1:1 Executive Meetings – Just because the event isn’t in person, doesn’t mean attendees won’t have a personalized experience. They will have the opportunity to meet with ASG executives and leaders to learn how modern solutions can help them optimize their information and infrastructure.
  • The Demo ZoneEVOLVE20 will feature a virtual demo zone, in which attendees get an up-close look at how ASG partners’ solutions can solve complex IT and business challenges in conjunction with ASG technologies.
  • Networking – Attendees will have the opportunity to connect with their peers to discuss how to become a more reactive organization in this unprecedented time. ASG’s virtual event platform allows for online messaging, chat and live Q&A functionality, making engagement seamless and easy.
  • Women Leaders in Technology Virtual Coffee Talk – On Wednesday, October 7, attendees can join a few of the industry’s most influential women leaders for an interactive discussion around topics including current barriers, how they achieve success and ways to promote inclusion.
  • The 2020 ASG Excellence Awards – Now in its third year, the Excellence Awards recognize ASG customers and partners who are driving innovation and digital transformation via ASG solutions. Winners will be notified on August 26, ahead of the awards ceremony at EVOLVE20.
  • Free attendance – Yes, registration for EVOLVE20 is complimentary! One of the best parts of holding a virtual conference is that more people can join, no matter where they are located. ASG wanted to make this year’s event as convenient and accessible as possible for all attendees.

As 2020 continues to usher in unprecedented challenges, there is no better time to bring the industry’s best minds together. Join ASG at EVOLVE20 on October 6-7 to power your digital transformation forward no matter what.
