"As a new HYPE user and first-time attendee of their annual European flagship event, I can attest the HYPE INNOVATE 2018 Bonn Forum provided international innovation champions like me a high-energy, well-thought-out conference experience that featured a wide range of presenters sharing informative content that successfully provoked and inspired innovation in fresh and interesting ways.

Real-world success stories and lessons learned, along with networking opportunities and meaningful candid conversations with HYPE representatives and like-minded users from diverse global industries, made this an invaluable investment of my time and energy as an innovation manager.

The spirited hospitality of the HYPE team made every attendee feel like more than just a client. This crowd of innovation management “lone wolves” quickly became one big innovation community openly sharing and learning—and ready to change the world one HYPE campaign at a time!"

"I attended the 2018 HYPE Annual User Forum in Bonn. It was a well-run user conference with lots of opportunities to meet other professionals driving innovation at their respective companies. The event featured various user presentations that offered insightful experiences and valuable advice on how to overcome a broad range of challenges. The side conversations during breaks and evening events, as well as the new connections made, were just as valuable as the forum's content.

While there were quite a few people from HYPE present, there was no selling effort whatsoever. Their entire focus was on connecting us, the users – something I really appreciated. Also, I got to meet with key product influencers and suggested various SW improvements – and they took their time to really listen.

Overall, I feel the user forum was an excellent event, well worth my time and (travel) effort; and I do recommend to other innovation drivers to consider attending."
