ATTEND i3 @ NASHVILLE

Uncover Insights. Develop Ideas. Advance Innovation.

Each year, the E-WorkBook community of IT and R&D professionals converge in a different US city for 3 days of learning and sharing experience, developing insights and connection at i3.

Since our 1st annual i3 in 2017, the event has inspired hundreds of idbs customers and E-WorkBook users to harness the power of their data, build plans for the future, and to learn more about leveraging the platform for sustained success and business growth.

I3 features 3 days packed full of innovative and inspiring talks from customers and EWB users, educational breakouts, interactive sessions – like the Knowledge Exchange Round Table, and of course exclusive product training sessions.

The event has grown so much that we are expanding to Europe in 2019. This year there will be TWO i3 events hosted by idbs for EWB users and community members. Those interested to attend i3 should register for the event taking place in your region.
