Last week on January 17 & 18, we held our first annual edition of the Akeneo PIM Summit in Paris. A unique opportunity to gather our customers, our partners, and our team for 2 days of conferences, Q&A sessions, networking, good times and of course, parties!
During the APS, more than 220 people, from 70 companies, in 14 different countries joined us in Paris. What a wonderful occasion to meet and discuss the market trends and prepare our communities for their PIM needs within 2018.
This event was full of great presentations. A couple of crowd favorites were: our 2017 retrospective, our 2018 roadmap, but also on Jabra’s customer presentation, and analyst Mark Smith’s view on the future of the PIM market.
We, of course, made several product announcements, but the big news you did not want to miss was about the acquisition of Sigmento by Akeneo and the anticipated Q2 launch of PIM.ai, a machine learning powered tool to help our customers gathering additional product data and accelerate the time needed to prepare product sheets.
The APS was an opportunity for our customers and partners to meet and network with our ecosystem as well. And the evening party was one of those great moments where everyone enjoyed themselves and had focused on having fun – the Akeneo way!
The event ended with the Akeneo Project Awards ceremony where 5 of our customers and partners received awards for the best B2B & B2C Akeneo projects, the rookie award, and the audience award.

Thank you to all of our customers, partners, and sponsors for being here with us and being part of this amazing journey, we can’t wait to do it again next year!
