The first week of April Collabora Productivity attended the HostingCon conference in Los Angeles, introducing Collabora Online for the first time ever in the United States. It was a very successful event for us as Collabora Online, the online Office Suite you can run yourself, attracted a lot of attention.
HostingCon was very well organised, with network events around the 2 days the exhibition hall was open. In total (together with Data Center World) there were around 250 companies with a stand, attracting a nice crowd of people. The attendees were people from hosting an cloud businesses, data centers and different enterprises, from all over the world.
Our booth was very well attended, and the people that visited us were informed about how Collabora Online could help them to obtain more business (by offering their own Online Office suite) or how they could increase productivity as end users. We had tons of information, explaining why you should become a partner or end-user, what the features are and how we compare with competitors. We also had a demo people could play with, which was very well received. Of course, we also had some cool swag to give away.
All different sort of people stopped at our booth, and they were amazed about to hear what Collabora Online could mean for them and what they could do with it: run their own powerful online office suite that fully respects their privacy!
We want to thank the organisation of HostingCon, and all the great people we met there. We are looking forward to see each other in future events. And although this has been the last edition of HostingCon, for sure we’ll meet again at other events!
