Last week in Boulder, Colorado, Spectra Logic hosted its well-known press, analyst and blogger event – formally recognized as Spectra Summit. This year’s event was held at the St. Julien Hotel & Spa, located in the heart of Boulder, CO, just footsteps away from the Pearl Street Mall. The event was a success with more than 35 press/analysts/bloggers and four customers/partners in attendance.
The event officially kicked off on the evening of Monday, October 12th with a welcome reception held at the Rembrandt Yard Art Gallery & Event Center. Here, our guests were able to mingle with Spectra Logic employees and executives, as well as with each other, while enjoying cocktails, delicious hors d’oeuvres, and the captivating art displayed within the gallery.
Tuesday morning, the entire group gathered at the St Julien to receive some exciting announcements from Spectra Logic’s executive team members. CEO and founder, Nathan Thompson, kicked the event off with an opening keynote speech, which was followed by an unveiling of Spectra Logic’s newest product, ArcticBlue. Shortly after, our customer/partner attendees took to the stage to discuss their current/future use cases of both BlackPearl and ArcticBlue. In the afternoon, attendees were encouraged to attend a variety of break-out sessions, including a hands-on-lab, building an S3 client demonstration, and industry trends discussion. The day concluded with several rounds of 1:1 briefings and a closing dinner at the Boulder Chophouse, right across the street.
Wednesday morning was filled with another series of 1:1 meetings and wrapped up with a tour of Spectra Logic’s headquarters. All in all, the event was definitely a success and we are so thrilled to see all of the positive feedback that has stemmed from it, regarding ArcticBlue, BlackPearl and more.
