Figure 1: CRMUG Gold sponsorship
With CRMUG European Congress 2016 in Stuttgart, the CRMUG congress took place on the European continent for the very first time.
When we arrived in Stuttgart we were really excited. To be frank, we did not know what to expect from the congress. Would it be a great event or an organizational desaster? Everything could have happened.
However, the event turned out to be amazing, full of great people and – because it was yet not as known as eg the long-established congresses – it reminded us of our beginnings. From the very first moment we knew that being a GoldSponsor for this event had been a great decision.
During the – nearly familiar atmosphere – we managed to talk to lots of great people, as for example Gustaf Westerlund. We also had the opportunity to listen to the outstanding sessions held by MVPs like Adam Vero & Scott Durow.
Also, we were so fascinated by the rise of this amazing event that we even forgot to take fotos . But we managed to make one of our booth before it was overrun by people:

Anyway, we have already decided that we will participate again next year. All in all, it was a well organized event. Of course, there were some teething troubles, but there were less than we expected to be and so we knew:
There is every reason to ask a great deal from CRMUG Congress 2017! We’ll be back!
