The winter solstice last week brought the shortest day of the year to the northern hemisphere. Much of the U.S. is experiencing an epic cold snap, snow and ice are clogging roads in the UK, and a few weeks ago airports across Europe were canceling flights due to heavy snow. With all this cold and gloom, you may well be dreaming of someplace warm and bright right now.
If you want to go beyond dreaming, I have a suggestion: Plan a trip to sunny Las Vegas for Hub 2018, our annual connected planning conference. It’s coming up on March 5–7, 2018.
We’ve moved Hub to the beautiful Aria Hotel and planned three full days of training, connecting, and networking just for Anaplanners like you. We kick off with a full day of opportunities for learning about the Anaplan platform, followed by two information-rich days with more than 85 breakout sessions—finance, sales, and supply chain–specific content organized for every level of Anaplan knowledge. Most of the sessions will be presented by Anaplan customers and partners, so you’ll hear real-world stories from people just like you.
We’re also planning several fun social events and lining up a full expo hall where you can network with fellow Anaplanners. And to get you thinking about the future, we have New York Times best-selling author and influencer Malcolm Gladwell as our keynote speaker. You can find more details about everything on the Hub 2018 website.
I can suggest two other incentives for you to reserve your place at Hub 2018 now:
Group rate. Register four people for Hub 2018 and the fifth registration is free. This group rate offers a good opportunity to bring your whole team—or maybe to invite a person from another part of your company who wants to learn about Anaplan.
Refer-a-colleague contest. We’ll formally announce this soon, but if you register with a friend or colleague now you’ll be eligible to participate. We’ve got a fantastic prize package for one lucky attendee. Check out what last year’s winner, Brett Lukowicz of Echo Global Logistics, had to say about the contest.
So quit worrying about the cold for a few minutes. Toss off your parka and dream of short sleeves. With Hub 2018 less than 9 weeks away, you’ll feel warm inside if you register now.
