Wow! What a conference Collaborate 2020 turned out to be. Though it was our third annual event, it was a first for our team to host a completely virtual event. Thank you to all who attended and engaged with us. Your involvement was a big part of what made the virtual event such a huge success!

The event ran for 48 continuous hours across North America, EMEA, and APAC. We offered both live and on-demand and with content tailored to each region, complete with a virtual expo hall, vendor booths, raffles, prizes, and interactive photo booth. All told, the event attracted a global audience of nearly 6,000. Here’s just a few comments from attendees on their takeaways from Collaborate 2020.

The theme of this year’s Collaborate was Work As One, and throughout the two days of the event, attendees were treated to the many ways Wrike transforms how teams work together to maximize performance, accelerate growth, and improve the customer’s experience.
This year’s event featured two “big reveal” keynote sessions, along with celebrity guest speakers Jackie Joyner-Kersee, six-time Olympic Gold Medalist, motivational speaker, and Founder of the Jackie Joyner-Kersee Foundation, and Eniola Aluko, former professional soccer player and current Director of Women’s Football at Aston Villa. Both women shared stories of overcoming adversity and leading to triumph, all with the help of team collaboration and working as one.
The event opened with CEO Andrew Filev’s keynote speech, in which he shared his vision of the future of work and how Wrike is leading the digital transformation. Filev also announced the latest product releases. During his speech, he also brought in Aaron Senna from Dish, Francis Lalonde of Walmart Canada, and Nickelodeon’s Jeff Hartlieb to share how Wrike has helped them transition to remote work and thrive during the pandemic.
From the product side, the pandemic hasn’t slowed our team down as evidenced by Wrike VP of Product Alexey Korotich’s keynote. As the undisputed leader in collaborative work management, customers tell us they appreciate our complete suite of features to help them do the best work of their lives. It’s feedback like this that pushes us to continue delivering what customers value most so they can be more productive, enjoy their work, and execute outstanding results. This year, we announced eight product releases that you’ll want to check out what’s new and coming soon.
