Thank you to everyone who visited the Kendis booth at the SAFe Summit 2022! We had an incredible time meeting both current and future customers. We were blown away by the excitement that people had about being together in-person again, learning more about Scaled Agile, and exploring what Kendis has to offer.
The Summit took place at the beautiful Gaylord Rockies Resort in Denver, Colorado. We were greeted every morning by a sunrise over downtown Denver and the Rocky Mountains in the distance. Watch our vlog of the summit and read through our recap of the highlights below.
On Monday, our team spent the day setting up our booth in preparation for the next two days. We then attended the Partner Dinner hosted by SAFe. Here we started getting to know fellow SAFe partners who we continued to spend time with throughout the week.
Tuesday was day 1 of the Summit! The energy in the building was electric. Everyone was so happy to be together and eager to meet new people. The day was a whirlwind of interacting with people at our booth, including many Change Agents (some of whom we interviewed for upcoming videos), as well as current customers that we were able to give special Kendis branded JBL speakers. We loved finally meeting our customers in person and being able to build those relationships.
Wednesday was day 2 of the Summit, and it was a bit less frantic following the excitement of day 1. This allowed for longer and more informative interactions at our booth. We gave more in-depth demos of our software, and we played our new ‘Being A Change Agent’ video on the tv screen. This drew a lot of interest in general, and it played into our theme of being the ‘Change Agent Toolkit’. We met many inspiring Change Agents and we are excited to support them in their transformations and continued change-making.
Wednesday evening was the Closing Party! We had a pre-party celebration with some fellow SAFe partners, which inspired great camaraderie and conversations. The closing party included Cornhole, Axe throwing, Bluegrass music, Tater tots, S’mores, and more. There were even wild birds that had been rescued, including a bald eagle! The size of this bird was breath-taking! Everything really is bigger in America. While everyone was standing around taking pictures, it was hard not to think about how easily it could probably grab and fly away with one of our team members…
It was a great way to end the week, and we loved spending time with the people that we had gotten to know throughout the week.
Whether you were able to attend or not, we hope to see you next year at the SAFe Summit 2023 in Nashville!
