In 2017 Digital Workplace Group and CMSWire formed a strategic partnership to create a new digital workplace industry event. Building on the successful inaugural conference last June, Digital Workplace Experience is back for June 2018.
Digital Workplace Experience (DWX) is an interactive event for the global community of intranet and digital workplace professionals.
Next year’s DWX will take place on June 18–20, 2018 in Chicago, USA. We are delighted to announce that the 2018 speaker line-up features digital influencer and futurist, Dion Hinchcliffe and organizations including NASA, H&R Block and the Scottish Government.
The content for DWX 2018 includes 5 main tracks with associated sub topics that focus on key digital workplace areas such as employee experience, intelligent workplace, culture, leadership, change management and digital workplace roadmaps. New to 2018 is our advisory committee, who will be helping to shape the content. Members of the committee include speakers Karen Brown, from H&R Block and Dion Hinchcliffe, who are joined by Jason Blackwell, Human Factor Engineer and Usability Specialist at IBM, and Dianna Langley, Digital Workplace Manager at Oxfam.
DWX17 featured live tours and real-time demos of featured digital workplaces from DWG members, including Adobe, Aegon and KPMG as well as other non-member industry names.
As Paul Miller, CEO and Founder of DWG says, “For more than a decade, the strategic member relationships, research and benchmarking power of DWG and the news and events strength of CMSWire have helped define the digital workplace industry globally. DWX 2018 will showcase content-led, rich experiences from the world’s best digital workplaces. The range of talks, insights and stories from our guest speakers will make for rewarding and inspiring few days.”
“The SMG/CMSWire team have been covering the digital workplace sector for more than a decade and we are constantly inspired by the quiet innovation happening inside organizations.” said Brice Dunwoodie, Founder and President of Simpler Media Group, Inc. “We’re looking forward to an information and experience-rich 3 days this coming June.”
