Looking back on the 2018 EnterWorks Engage User Conference, there are many memorable moments: collaborating with our customers and hearing their stories of success; learning from our experts and inspiring keynote speakers; and last, but not least, networking and building upon our close-knit Engage community.

We captured a few of our favorite moments in the photos below. Also, be sure to read the event recap from EnterWorks CEO Rick Chavie.

To kick things off, our Customer Advisory Board joined us at the Superdome for box seats at the New Orleans Saints vs. Cleveland Browns game.

During the week, EnterWorks Enable™ training sessions gave customers the opportunity to learn PIM/MDM solution tips and tricks.

Our keynote speaker, Bruce Eppinger of Forrester Research, gave a first look at the Forrester Wave for B2C Commerce and discussed future trends in digital business.

EnterWorks CEO Rick Chavie moderated an Innovation Panel with Louis Hernandez, Ken Bonning, Steven Platt, and Bruce Eppinger to discuss the impact of emerging tech including AI, ML, IoT, AR, and VR.


For New Orleans-themed fun, we held a Scavenger Hunt that led teams to our Welcome Reception at Beach on Bourbon. Winners received prizes (and bragging rights) for Most Dedicated, Most Fun, and Most Creative.


The Engage Welcome Reception featured an awesome performance by the New Orleans band, Sugar Shaker.

Chef Jeff Henderson’s keynote address was a highlight of the week, giving his inspirational “streets to stove” story and signing autographed books after the session.  

Customers strolled to our Engage Appreciation Evening in style! A local New Orleans marching band guided our group to Bourbon Cowboy with a Mardi Gras Parade.


Engage attendees experienced great networking opportunities and plenty of ‘Big Easy’ fun.
