Upcoming: Pendomonium Study Tour

Join us for a very special behind-the-scenes Study Tour of Pendomonium 2023 taking place October 18-19 in Raleigh, North Carolina. 

Pendomonium 2023, Pendo’s user conference, at Raleigh’s Martin Marietta Center for the Performing Arts, is the festival for people and products doing things differently. 

Join other CEMA event professionals to witness how Pendo is creating a unique “festival of product and community” in their corporate headquarter city of Raleigh! Take part in a “behind the scenes tour” of the unconventional venues they are leveraging and how they are building a stronger community with Pendomonium 2023. Learn how a growing technology company “boxes above their weight class” and delivers a “knockout” brand experience within their budget parameters. 

Get the inside story directly from the Pendo Global Events VP, Lindsay Niemiec, on how she took a different approach to the typical user conference. Not only will you hear how Pendo has successfully grown their event year-over-year, but this study tour will also showcase the city of Raleigh as an up-and-coming mecca for IT companies, as well as a viable option for hosting key events for organizations of all sizes. 

Whether your company is large or small, this study tour will offer insights that can be applied to any scale event. Participation is limited to the first 20 pre-approved attendees, so sign up early! 

This Study Tour includes a complimentary ticket to Pendomonium 2023.
