[Webinar] ELEVATE 2019: What to Expect

1 min read

Hear from Mongoose’s very own Greg Bauch as he reviewed details of what to expect during this year's ELEVATE user retreat in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Key topics covered:

  • Recap of event logistics (when, where, how)
  • High-level daily itineraries
  • Resources to convince your boss you should attend
  • Important deadlines (call for speakers, early bird registration, etc.) 


At the close of the webinar, we asked if listeners had any questions and a few great questions rolled in! We have updated the Frequently Asked Questions section of the ELEVATE website accordingly, but here are a couple examples of relevant questions and answers.

Q: Are meals included?
A: Yes, your registration includes 3 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 dinners, beverages, all conference fees, and all social and networking events.

Q: Is there any value in attending ELEVATE if I am a new Cadence user?
A: Yes. With so many clients sharing invaluable experience-based recommendations, the knowledge you’ll gain at ELEVATE will step up your learning curve significantly. We highly recommend new users attend so we can expedite your training and get you that much more comfortable launching your texting campaigns.
