*Disclaimer: Ekos_Con is not open to the public. It is a conference for all Ekos customers, select industry partners, and prospective customers.
If you’re new to the Ekos family, you might be wondering what in the world Ekos_Con is. In the past, we’ve held annual in-person gatherings where we could high-five and clink glasses while talking all things Ekos. For obvious reasons, we decided to take Ekos_Con virtual in 2021. While we’re sad we can’t give you all so much as an elbow bump this year, going virtual has its benefits — and you’ll still get all the great training content we normally offer, plus an entire track of thought leadership sessions!
This year is new and different and we can’t wait to see you there. If you need some specific reasons to carve out time in your schedule for Ekos_Con 2021, here’s what you have to look forward to:
- Exclusive Ekos training opportunities
When we asked customers what you wanted out of Ekos_Con, your top response was training, and we heard you! You’ll have your pick of training sessions led by our team and covering every aspect of Ekos, from best practices on the production and sales modules to how the accounting integration works and tips on getting the most out of reports and dashboards.
- Actionable business management tips
In addition to Ekos training, we’re excited to offer a thought leadership track. If you choose to attend these sessions, you’ll hear about how to become a better leader, grow your business, and learn key lessons from others in the beverage alcohol space.
- Advice from your peers and experts in other industries
Perhaps the biggest benefit of a gathering of Ekos customers is that you get to hear directly from each other about your experiences. We’re proud to have Ekos users from breweries, cideries, and wineries (and even a meadery and a seltzery!) speaking in many sessions at Ekos_Con.
- Guidance on embracing diversity and inclusion in your company
We’re honored to have diversity educator Ren Navarro presenting about how to cultivate diversity and inclusion in the craft beverage industry. There’s no denying that the industry needs to make improvements, and we’re looking forward to starting the conversation among Ekos users.
- Ekos product updates
Want to know what’s coming next on the Ekos product roadmap? VP of Product Rachel Hoppe will share recent updates and what you can expect from future releases.
- Insight into industry trends and how to approach them
We’ll take a look into our crystal ball to see what’s coming for the beverage alcohol industries and touch on how you can stay ahead of the curve.
- Content for every department
Whether you’re the owner, a production team member, a salesperson, a bookkeeper, or anything in between, we’ve kept you in mind while creating this year’s sessions. From training to thought leadership, we want to make sure everyone in your organization can get something out of Ekos_Con 2021.
- The inside scoop on the future of Ekos
In addition to product-focused updates from our VP of Product Rachel Hoppe, CEO Josh McKinney will share his long-term vision for the future of Ekos — including how we’ll expand our capabilities to connect the craft industry across the supply chain . It’s a big vision, and we can’t wait to share it with you.
- It’s virtual.
We know it’s nice to see each other in person, but this year you can get all the Ekos_Con content without leaving home (or wherever you plan to watch!). We hope this means we’ll have more Ekos users than ever attend this year’s event.
- It’s free! So why wouldn’t you?
Our goal with Ekos_Con 2021 is to bring together leaders, innovators, business owners, and employees to connect, share, and learn from one another to help the industry keep moving forward. We hope you’ll be a part of it.
