In the fall of 2011, we held our first-ever BoxWorks. With approximately 300 customers in attendance, it was an amazing and eye-opening event. Not least of all because we learned as much from our attendees as they learned from us – maybe more.
Fast forward to today, and we’re gearing up for our third annual BoxWorks, taking place September 15-17 at the Hilton San Francisco, right on Union Square. And even though we’ll have more than 10X (!!!) the attendees of our inaugural event, this year’s BoxWorks will still be all about learning from you, our customers. How does Box fit into your business today? How can we do better?
The theme of this year’s event is, “No End to Possible.” Throughout the three days at BoxWorks, we’ll be breaking down barriers: technology barriers, but also the barriers of our own expectations. What should collaboration and information sharing look like in our organizations five or ten years from now? And how do we get there faster?
We have some exciting news to share, and we will kick things off with a keynote from Box CEO Aaron Levie, where he’ll unveil major product, platform and partner updates. You will also hear from leading writer and thinker, Malcolm Gladwell, author of the bestseller, “The Tipping Point.” He’ll discuss his upcoming book, “David and Goliath,” and what makes it possible for small players to take on behemoths (a topic near and dear to our hearts at Box). Prolific authors Nicholas Carr (“Does IT Matter”) and Geoffrey Moore (“Crossing the Chasm”) will also join us onstage to challenge our assumptions.
We’ll also hear stories of innovation and transformation from customers, including Eli Lilly, Netflix, McAfee, Southwest Airlines, Duke Energy, Sunbelt Rentals, Notre Dame, Bechtel, Hulu, and many, many more. In six separate tracks, we'll dive into areas like mobile transformation, balancing security with ease of use, building game-changing apps on Box, and industry-specific stories that will inspire and delight.
Last but not least, prepare yourself for the best party of the year with a killer to-be-announced band.
We hope you’ll join us for what is guaranteed to be an epic event. Grab your ticket to the event of the year and take advantage of early bird pricing.
