Engage 2019 – Summary

How to start? Simply. Great place, great program, great news, great weather …. but only two days 😉

After a year I went to the Engage conference again. It was my first visit to Brussels and because I knew that the program would be difficult, I started a little earlier, studied the guidebook of Brussels and during Monday he could see the most important places like Square Grand-Place, Manneken-Pis,The Royal Palace, Brussels Park, buildings of the Parlamentarium, the European Parliament and the European Commission, Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert, a lot chocolate and truffle shops, waffles, but most of all I was looking forward to the Parc du Cinquantenaire and Autoworld where the conference took place.



After a long drive, it was added a 15 km walk. Completely destroyed, but beer with Czech friends Jan Krejcarek and Martin Pradny and for the assistance of Oliver Busse was a great medicine for a tired body.

The conference could begin…..

The absolute amazing place of the museum of cars captivated me.

Already before the conference, I prepared a list of tracks using a mobile application created by Paul Harrison.

I am not a developer and so I was especially interested in news about Domino / Notes 11, mobile applications, HCL partner program, etc.

The conference was opened by Theo Heselmans. Thanks to him and his wife for organizing such an event. It had to be a lot of work. Big THANKS again!

During the introductory Keynote I got a big surprise when I enjoyed a few seconds of fame in the presentation of MarvelClient Upgrade by Florian Vogler – CEO Panagenda.

More than 80 sessions started after Speed Sponsoring
Note: The great performance of the girls Sharon James and Stephanie Heit from BCC.

Although very tired, I got into the car right after the conference and repeated (next 11 hours) the experiences of amazing conference.

I’m already looking forward to next year……..
