As everyone probably knows, my trip to Mercy Ships came out of our fist annual Forward conference last year. And prior to that, it came from Darcy Siegfried meeting the Mercy Ships team at SeaTrade and having the insight to know they’d be great speakers at our conference.
By hosting the Forward Conference, which thanks to our marketing team’s vision is much more than a users conference, we were able to bring together customers, suppliers, and FWI team members for two days of sessions intended to propel everyone “forward.” Forward in our businesses, in our use of visual communications, and in our impact on the world.
After Russ from Mercy Ships spoke on stage, many people donated online from the audience, and both Peerless and NEC showed immediate interest in providing support from their companies. Just recently, Peerless committed to donate all display mounts for the ship and NEC committed to donate hundreds of display screens for use as digital signs, room TV’s and to show medical applications.
None of this would have happened without Forward. With one conference under our belt and an impressive speaker lineup, our 2016 conference promises to be spectacular. Join us in Denver for two amazing days and see what the buzz is about.
