Case Study: Tobacco Dock hosts Alteryx Inspire Europe 2017

The annual event attracted more than 800 data analytics professionals from all over Europe.

Objective

Alteryx Inspire Europe wanted to host a two-day analytics event that required multiple spaces for talks, networking, breakout sessions and 12 exhibition stands. The conference attracts businesses from all over Europe and invites them to explore how self-service data analytics can benefit them.

Following the success of its inaugural event last year, the company was keen to significantly expand the conference in 2017.

Solution

Tobacco Dock hosted the second edition of Alteryx Inspire Europe from 12-13 September. The two-day data analytics event attracted more than 800 delegates to the east London venue.

As well as keynote speeches from Timandra Harkness (science writer, broadcaster, and comedian), Dean Stoecker (chairman and CEO, Alteryx), Langley Eide (chief strategy officer, Alteryx), Jay Bourland (SVP Engineering, Alteryx), Olivia Duane Adams (chief customer officer, Alteryx) and Ned Harding (chief technology officer, Alteryx), guests were also able to benefit from hands-on training programs and industry expert tips and tricks throughout the event.

Following the success of its inaugural event last year, Alteryx expanded the event significantly and chose Tobacco Dock due to its flexible, architecturally significant spaces, world-class data connectivity and the venue’s proximity to London’s thriving enterprise zone. 

Verdict

Chiara Pensato, senior director of EMEA marketing at Alteryx, said: "We hosted an iconic event in an iconic venue, and are really pleased with how Tobacco Dock helped us to produce a remarkable and unique experience for all the delegates who flew from over 30 countries to join us in London."
