Simply the best!

Deloitte activities draw record numbers at SAPPHIRE NOW 2018

With the theme of “The Best Run SAP,” the recent SAPPHIRE NOW conference encouraged participants to think big about how they can use breakthrough technologies to make a lasting difference to their organizations and to the world. At the conference, held June 5-7 in Orlando, Deloitte helped many of the 22,043 attendees to reimagine how they do business, bringing the possibilities of faster growth and improved performance to life through dozens of demos, multiple meetings and numerous speaking sessions. Deloitte worked to maintain a “can’t miss” presence throughout the event with its 50’ x 30’ double-decker booth in the exhibit hall, where 679 people attended theatre sessions.

Here’s the rundown of how Deloitte commanded attention at a conference agenda that was chock-full of options:

  • Participated in and/or hosted 64 speaking sessions
  • Showcased 70+ demos, including Deloitte Reimagine Platform demos for Cold Chain, Smart Tap, GR/IR, Predictive Maintenance, and Machine Learning for Customer. Both innovative and interactive, these demos were a huge hit, drawing people by the hundreds to our booth.
  • Featured the new Deloitte Reimagine Platform app as a large iPhone touch-screen in our booth. This gave participants the opportunity to interact with the app, which can be downloaded via the App Store.
  • Hosted 25+ networking events
  • Garnered 177 mentions, 242 retweets, 429 likes, and over 100K impressions on social media.
  • Reimagined everything everywhere. We featured the theme at our client party and within our booth, conference sessions, and client interactions. And, the message got through! Speakers called out our reimagine-themed client event during the Day-2 keynote.
