Read on for Tuesday, June 11th highlights from Empower 2019. Some of our favorites were the Quickbase Customer Awards, industry round-tables, and the true bread and butter of Empower – the Breakout Sessions.

Morning Keynote & Customer Awards

Rick Willett, CEO of Quickbase, took the main stage where he shared our vision for the future and led discussions with some of our most innovative customers: Hilton, Windstream, Aetna and Octo. We’re proud to be able to support the work that our customers are doing to make a difference across their companies and industries. Watch the full keynote here!

That’s not all – we also presented the annual Quickbase Customer Awards! The Awards celebrate those who bring dynamic change to their businesses and the Quickbase community through team innovation and individual contribution. These awards shine a spotlight on customers who are creating a major impact in their organizations with Quickbase. We’re honored to celebrate their success!

Noteworthy Moments

On Tuesday, nearly half of the 54 Breakout Sessions took place. It was a packed house at many of the sessions, including Building for Mobile, Calculate the ROI of Your App, and the two-part Quickbase Automations workshop.

We celebrated over 800 new Quickbase certified builders today. Congratulations to the 2019 class!

We welcomed some special guests during lunch: therapy dogs from the Humane Society of Greater Miami. Because isn’t everything better with furry friends? They’ll be joining us on Wednesday as well so come on by and spend a few moments destressing with the pups!

We also held a block of eight Networking Sessions this afternoon, bringing together Quickbase users from Construction, IT, Healthcare, Finance, Manufacturing and more. It was inspiring to hear colleagues share their successes and inspire others to solve industry- and function-specific challenges with Quickbase.

Hopefully you stopped by the Heroes Lounge outside the Exhibit Hall during your breaks to record a testimonial video, take photos inside of our giant “Q”, fill out our customer survey, get Quickbase swag, and learn more about the awesome redesign of our new Community platform. We can’t wait to see what’s in store tomorrow!

We’ll be sharing our favorite photos from the conference on our social media channels using #QBEmpower2019. Keep an eye out for those and let us know your favorites.
