Axelerant + Engage 2020: Who Should Care?

Table of Contents


Acquia Engage Online 2020 is free for anyone to attend. This will bring enterprise-level technologists and CTOs, digital agency decision makers, CMOs, Acquians, members of the Drupal and Mautic communities, and others. And we’re proud to be sponsoring.

But out of all these diverse movers and doers, who should care that we’re sponsoring—why are we sponsoring, anyways?

  1. Agency leaders and teams: we have something special to offer you. Axelerant is an agency for agencies that stand to gain from flexible team bandwidth, cost-effective scaling, and from filling gaps with adept, certified engineers. Our technical delivery services are built for agency partners in particular, and our partnership with both past and present Acquia agency partners and others is truly unique. (Blue State Digital, RedWeb, White Rhino, Proctor + Stevenson, FFW, Wunderman Thompson, etc.) Stop by our booth to learn more.
  2. Anyone who’s following Acquia closely: we are proud of our symbiotic relationship with Acquia, and we’ll be sharing examples of why. Across departments: product engineering, professional services, sales, marketing—Axelerant has brought real value (that has grown) to Acquia and Acquia’s clients for over eight years. We haven’t just shared in the success of Acquia’s products, we’ve contributed to this success and on a global scale to support million dollar deals. In this sense, we are stakeholders and proud collaborators. Ask us questions about this special relationship at the event, and how it started.

Why visit our booth?

  • We’ll have stories about a recent UN project being shared by agency doers and dreamers from Blue State Digital, a leading Axelerant agency partner.
  • Also on the agenda are some Acquians who’ll be presenting with Axelerant on our work with CohesionDX.
  • We’ll have a brief session on our work to improve Acquia’s Mautic, led by Prateek.
