Sage Sessions Live Events Coming to a City Near You
Earlier this year, Sage announced that in lieu of hosting a big annual Sage Summit event like we’ve seen in years past, the company has decided to take the show on the road and get closer to customers on their home turf.
The newly-formatted “Sage Sessions” tour is comprised of a series of live regional events throughout the U.S. and Canada. Similar to Sage Summit but more compact, Sage Sessions is a single-day event featuring a keynote, breakout sessions, product demos, and a lunch & mingle reception that provides networking opportunities. Each stop will also feature a scaled-down trade show and opportunities to speak with product experts from Sage and third parties.
There are currently 10 stops scheduled in the U.S.lo and Canada as follows:
Los Angeles - Feb 13
Chicago - April 25
Toronto - May
Dallas - May
Atlanta - June 5
New York, NY - July 24
Seattle - August 7
Vancouver - October 16
Pricing is $29 for early birds (up to 1 week prior to the event) and $49 standard after that.
