We had an amazing two days at the Dublin Web Summit on the 17th and 18th October. We were exhibiting at the Web Summit to promote Sage One and Sage CRM and we had a phenomenal interest in both products.
Sage Commercial Product Manager, Simon Bell was interviewed at the Web Summit by Paul O’Mahony. You can listen to the interview in the podcast below. Simon talks about Sage One and gives some great advice about how small businesses can build their brand, but inevitably the conversation swayed towards the cupcakes.
It was great to meet business owners and current customers of Sage that dropped by to say hello. Among the many people that dropped by our stand was Krishna De of Biz Growth Media and Lorraine Carter of Persona Branding & Design.
The Persona Branding Blog recently won Best Blog Of An SME (sponsored by Sage) at The Blog Awards Ireland so it was great to meet Lorraine and congratulate her on her success with the Blog Awards.
David O’Donovan, Business Development Manager at Sage was giving live demos of Sage CRM which is available as an online or on-premise solution. Lorna Keogh, Manager of the Sage Business Advice Team was kept busy answering lost of questions about Sage One, our online accounts and payroll solution for small businesses and start-ups. As well as providing live demos of Sage One and Sage CRM, we had a charging station at our stand so people could drop by to charge their smart phone.
We also had lots of goodies on our stand, which were featured in the Web Summit report on the RTE nine o’clock news at the end of the first day.
There was a great atmosphere at the Web Summit with people in genuinely high spirits. We found the positive attitude of all of the business owners to be infectious and kept our energy levels up.
There were some brilliant speakers on the Cloud, Digital and Main Stage. The Summit is the largest tech conference in Europe. The two day event that was visited by more than 2,000 people from more than 50 countries with an impressive list of international speakers.
