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:
