Platforms / Technology
As a Sitecore Platinum partner, the team at Rightpoint is excited to be a part of the Sitecore Symposium 2018 event. The digital marketing event brings together Sitecore experts, partners and customers to learn, inspire, network and get a first look into Sitecore’s plans for the future.

WHAT: Sitecore Symposium 2018
WHERE: Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Resort
               1200 Epcot Resorts Blvd
                Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830
WHEN: Monday, October 8 – Thursday, October 11, 2018
WHO: Sitecore is a customer experience management company providing web content management and multichannel marketing automation software. Rightpoint, an independent customer experience agency with technology at its core, will be speaking and exhibiting at the event on topics such as igniting your customer experience and understanding digital strategy from a marketer’s POV.

On Tuesday, October 9, the Sr. Director for Commerce at Rightpoint, Thomas John, and VP of Commerce, Dale Traxler, will take the stage from 11:45am-12:30pm to speak on igniting your commerce experience. With ever-changing customer demographics, today’s retailers, global brand manufacturers and distributors find themselves struggling to not only keep their customers engaged, but to provide a contextually smart shopping experience. In this session, they will show attendees how to create a streamlined customer experience and how to mitigate common issues. In addition, they will talk about their own view on the future of commerce and the role of Sitecore Experience Commerce within it.

On Wednesday, October 10, Rightpoint experts Brandon Rozelle and Gabriel Bridger take the stage from 3:00-3:45pm to discuss understanding digital strategy from a marketer’s POV. The concept "being digital" can mean many things. That's also true of "digital strategy." Even in today's post-digital world, far too many companies struggle to develop and implement effective digital strategies. In fact, research shows that upwards of 75% of the companies surveyed have no digital strategy in place. In this session, we'll explore the what, why, and how of digital strategy from the marketer's point of view.

Attendees can also stop by Rightpoint’s booth #300 to get to know one of Rightpoint’s many Sitecore MVPs and commerce experts.

Earlier this year, Rightpoint partnered with Sitecore on its release of Sitecore Experience Commerce 9 by launching our own Commerce accelerator, Spark Commerce.
