What is Empower 2019?

Each year, Quick Base customers from around the world get together for 3 days of learning, networking, and a lot of fun.  While you may call it a user conference, we see it as much more.  Empower is a chance for Quick Base users of every skill level, new and old customers across every industry, our most dedicated and passionate builders, employees, and partners to all be in the same room. The amount of idea sharing and knowledge exchange that happens is truly inspiring, and we see firsthand how putting the right technology in the hands of the people closest to the work empowers them to make a bigger impact for their companies and get noticed for their efforts.  There’s nothing better than feeling the energy and seeing the innovation that happens in just a few days at Empower.  See for yourself:


You may want to participate in the app-a-thon, learn from experts in breakout sessions, or simply network and attend parties (and there are certainly a lot of those).  Whatever your motivation, you can expect to leave the conference with actionable tips and tricks, new Quick Base contacts, knowledge of what’s ahead on Quick Base’s product roadmap, amazing new app ideas, and be totally fired up about how you can make a difference for your company (and your career) with Quick Base!

Here are some highlights from 2018:

Agenda Preview

Each year, we create session tracks that feature breakout sessions around similar themes and topics that we think could be appealing to builders and users of the same Quick Base skill level. Here’s a preview of the session tracks we’ll have in 2019:

Build Your Foundation

For new builders and users or those who want a refresher on the basics, this session track will help you establish a sturdy foundation in Quick Base fundamentals.  You’ll leave the conference with knowledge of data modeling, relationships and formulas, forms, reporting, dashboards, roles and permissions – and hopefully having built your first app! Some sessions will focus on app planning best practices, deployment, and management so you’ll be armed with knowledge to design apps your end users will love to use.

Build to New Heights

Native Advanced

Ready to push Quick Base to the limit? This session track is for advanced builders, with topics including formula URLs, automations, creating reports your way, and how to build high performing apps.

Non-native Advanced

Learn how to expand and extend your reach with Quick Base in these sessions. Topics include managing round-trip emails and SMS, advanced Quick Base API, and a Quick Base + Power BI deep dive.

New Features

If you’re all about jumping head first into new features, this track may be for you. You’ll learn how to leverage Quick Base’s powerful new features, including topics around building for mobile, security and compliance, and Kanban boards.

Build Your Ecosystem

Check out this track on best practices and instruction for maximizing the strategic power of Quick Base. We’ll cover everything from integrations (all that’s possible!), governance frameworks, and staying on your IT team’s good side.

Build Your Network

Many of our customers say working with other Quick Base builders has been key to growing their knowledge. We’re lucky to have a diverse and expansive customer universe, with builders of all skill levels, from every industry, and across locations around the world. We’ll be offering a variety of events and sessions to help you meet other in your industry who are using Quick Base in a similar role. Look for customer panels, industry expert talks, and Q&A sessions!

“Everything about Empower was so impactful to me and my organization. Some of our best app ideas have come directly from the breakout sessions. Hearing how others use Quick Base helps us to dream bigger.” – Kelly Hayes, Senior Business Analyst, CCI Systems
