EMERGING STRONGER

STARTING JULY 15TH | LIVE AND ON-DEMAND

Hear Descartes’ experts and customers discuss their vision for the future, the best practices needed to thrive and solution innovations that enable successful transformation.

THE DETAILS

We are thrilled to announce that the online event is starting on July 15th. This year’s theme is Emerging Stronger and was developed after talking to many of you about your business and how you want to turn today’s challenges into tomorrow’s opportunities. We have put together an event that addresses the current market dynamics and provides solid guidance for future success. The goal with Virtual Evolution is to bring the best of the physical conference online. We are committed to making sure you come away with at least one great idea to improve the productivity, performance and security of your business.

ATTENDEES WILL:
  • Learn about Descartes’ vision for the solutions and industries it serves
  • Discover new strategies, tactics and best practices
  • Hear from customers how they are meeting today’s challenges
  • Learn how Descartes is innovating its solutions and the business value they can deliver
  • Get your questions answered by customers and Descartes’ experts

HOW IT WORKS

We have spread the conference over two weeks. In addition, sessions are scheduled at times when everyone from Europe to the West Coast can attend. Please plan to block your calendar for 90 minutes starting at 17:00 CEST/11am EDT/8am PDT July 15th, 16th and 22nd. On July 23rd, sessions will run for 135 minutes to accommodate product updates.

There is no charge for Descartes customers to participate, so please invite any of your associates who may benefit from the event. While initial sessions will be live, they will also be available on-demand for several weeks after the event. This will give you and your colleagues another chance to view all of sessions that are of interest.
