Meetings matter. But meeting people matters more.

Meetings matter. But meeting people matters more.

Why not make some great connections in Marseille this May?

I don’t know about you, but I spend a large amount of my time in meetings. Sometimes they are pre-meeting meetings, mainly meeting meetings, and from time to time after-meeting post mortems. But for me, while the formal business of business is important, it’s the meeting of minds that really counts.

It gives you the chance to look people in the eye, ask direct questions, develop a dialogue and form relationships that will last.

All of which is the big idea behind IDBS Connect, our exclusive, annual conference, which brings IDBS customers together from all over the world that started last year with major events in Berlin and Chicago.

Connect 2012 gave us the chance to tell you more about our products and services, and where we are heading in the future. It was a unique opportunity to get inside your heads to gather critical feedback on everything we do. It also allowed you to brainstorm with us on new features, as well as your key business challenges and future strategies.

Perhaps, most importantly, it was simply a way for us to get to know each other better and for you to network with your peers from around the world.

For Connect 2013 our theme is, Together we can do more, with the emphasis firmly on the word more.

We’ll be looking at how to achieve more successful collaborations, more productivity, more efficiency and more routes to global innovation. There will be more focus on technical issues, more practical sessions, more in-depth demonstrations and more case studies to inspire you in your key challenges.

And it goes without saying that there will be many more opportunities to meet, collaborate and make connections with the all the people that really matter in your business life. After all, that’s what IDBS Connect is all about.

Why not join us in Marseille this May? We’d love to meet you.

Sean O’Connell, Director, Global Marketing
