User Groups Live! and CPX: The Benefits of Both


In the pursuit of “all planning for all people,” Anaplan offers a variety of incredible events to equip individuals and businesses to succeed in their Connected Planning journeys. From our annual flagship event—Connected Planning Xperience (CPX)—to local meetups and webinars, such as our recent (and future) User Groups Live!, each event has a specific purpose and offers different benefits.

Following the success of our recent, inaugural User Groups Live! event, we’d like to offer insight for those wondering how it differs from the upcoming CPX event and showcase the benefits of attending both.

What is CPX?

Connected Planning Xperience (CPX) is the world’s preeminent Connected Planning event—featuring three full days of trainings, panels, presentations, and networking. It’s your chance to connect with fellow planners in real life—Anaplan customers, executives, partners, thought leaders, and model-building experts—and exchange insights on the power of Connected Planning.

What is User Groups Live!?

User Groups Live! brings planners from around the world together in an online space to interact virtually and obtain key planning principles from Anaplan experts via live streaming video. With no cost to attend, User Groups Live! is an accessible event for customers and partners of all experience levels, as well as for prospective customers interested in seeing what Anaplan has to offer (for example, check out the Connected Planning Playbook that we debuted at the last User Groups Live!).

Let's Compare!

Both events offer fantastic access to Anaplan content and Connected Planning thought leadership, as well as the chance to interact with peers, but there’s a lot that distinguishes each from the other. Here’s a quick look at what makes both events unique:
