Highlights from Episerver’s Ascend 2018 Conference

During Ascend 2018, First Line Software who is an Episerver Premium Partner, hosted a reception for customers who enjoyed lively discussions and exchanged best practices related to using Episerver products and services.

Episerver’s Ascend 2018 conference was held in Las Vegas from March 11th – March 14th.  The annual event attracted 700-plus attendees from all over the world – including sales and technical representatives from Episerver customers and partners.

In addition to a number of presentations by Episerver executives and technical experts, sessions were led by partners and customers who shared their expertise and experience with the Episerver and Ektron product portfolio which includes: CMS, Commerce, Perform, Reach, Campaign, Insight, Advance, and Personalized Find.

Episerver’s President and CEO, Mark Duffell, was the opening keynote speaker and shared Episerver’s direction for 2018.  During his presentation, Mark noted that Episerver will not be releasing any new products in 2018 but rather all R&D efforts will be focused on strengthening the existing product portfolio.

In other news, Episerver announced that they will be hosting a series of meetups around the U.S.  In April, meetups will be held in New York City on April 18th and in Boston on April 19th where you can expect to meetup with First Line Software representatives.  We look forward to finding out more about your experience with Episerver, the projects you are working on, plans for the future, and ways that we may be able to work together.
