All work and no play? Not at Kentico Connection

Best of all, we had the opportunity to let our hair down at the fantastic social events! Here are some memories of the evenings:

More great comments about Kentico Connection 2013:

Watch the Vox Pops video created by NetConstruct to hear what attendees thought!

And here’s what people are saying online:
I wished I could be in two places at once because of the quality of each session. It truly is one of my favorite events of the year because there is so much to see and so many like-minded people to network with…. There just was not enough time in the day. In fact I would say the 2013 version of the conference is the best version that I have attended so far. I am glad I attended and will be returning next year.”– Brian McKeiver, Bizstream
Quote: “Kentico revealed some really interesting features for Version 8 and showed how they were planning for the future. The Kentico team are really dedicated and committed to their customers and looking to improve all the time…I am really excited about the new version and I can't wait to try it out! Overall Kentico Connection was an amazing experience and I can't wait for the next one.” Ilesh Mistry of MMT Digital

“Day two sparked into life with seminars focused on the technical aspects of the Kentico platform. These seminars offered a compelling overview of how to simplify development processes, improve functionality and utilise Kentico’s CMS to its full capacity”. - Ridgeway
“The Kentico Connection Boston 2013 just wrapped up a few hours ago and, although physically tired, my brain is dashing around chasing all the pretty new Kentico features and ideas that were presented.…Between Keith, Sean, Sarah and myself I think we pretty much attended all the sessions available…Meeting up with other solution implementation partners is always a real highlight - so too is attending some of the partner presentations”. -  Michael Kinkaid of ecentricarts
The conference should be a ‘must attend’ date in the diary for all partners. Without doubt, it’s the best way to engage directly with the makers of Kentico, network with the wider community and further your understanding of the product. Keep up the good work Kentico, and we’ll be seeing you at the next Kentico Connection conferences in 2014.”  James Bloor of Distinction
