Don’t Miss Out on Aragon’s Biggest Event of the Year
by Katie Woodford
With just over two months to go until our annual December event, we have to ask, did you RSVP yet?
As a relative newcomer to Aragon, this will be my first Hot Vendor, Innovation, and Women in Tech Awards Ceremony, but I can already tell you one thing: believe the hype. It’s a packed program and a great chance to network with some amazing individuals. Oh, and another thing: RSVP.
What’s on the Agenda?
Our December event started off as a holiday get-together, then began honoring our Hot Vendors, and now honors three categories of top-notch tech players: Hot Vendors, Innovators, and Women in Tech.
While our Hot Vendor Awards recognize emerging providers, the Innovation Awards crown some truly innovative, best-in-class providers that stand out in their respective markets. Last but not least (and unapologetically, my favorite), the Women in Tech Awards were introduced in 2017 to recognize outstanding women in technology positions. They’re role models, innovators, and they give back: they’re basically superstars.
Plus, we kick it all off with a briefing and close it out with dessert. Here’s the full agenda:
- 4:30: Briefing Begins
- 4:30 – 4:50 10 Predictions for 2019 That Will Impact Your Enterprise, Jim Lundy et al.
- 4:55 – 5:25 [Customer Panel] The Future of Automation and Intelligence in the Enterprise, hosted by Adrian Bowles
- 5:30 – 5:50 The Rise of Smart RPA, Jim Sinur
- 5:55 – 6:25 [Panel] Women in Tech
- 6:30: Evening Reception Begins
- 6:30 – 7:15 Cocktails and Hors d’Oeuvres
- 7:15 – 8:15 Hot Vendor Awards
- 8:15 – 8:45 Innovation Awards
- 8:45 – 9:15 Women in Tech Awards
The Final Countdown: We Want Your Nominations
Speaking of awards, if you haven’t yet, make sure to submit your picks for the Innovation Awards and the Women in Tech Awards by this Sunday, September 30th. There is no cost to nominate and winners will be notified in advance.

Flashback to 2017: The Highlights
2017’s event was our biggest yet, and while 2018 will no doubt be bigger, we wanted to touch on a few of the don’t-miss highlights.
1. A New Category: Recognizing Women in Tech
Last year, we began recognizing standout women in tech and are excited to keep the tradition going in 2018. This year, our inaugural class of winners will be featured in a briefing panel and will be joining us to pass the torch to this year’s winners.
2. World-Class Networking
With the scope of awards this event includes, you’ll get to know representatives from both emerging and leading companies. Plus, in 2017, our attendees came from near (Silicon Valley) and far (Switzerland), and were able to connect with friends old and new.
3. A Fantastic Post-Event Video
See for yourself why we—and past attendees—love December’s event by reflecting back on 2017’s highlight reel, featuring narration from CEO Jim Lundy:
Bottom Line: Come for the Award, Stay for a Great Time
Whether or not you’re receiving an award, year after year, our December event proves to be a big hit and will introduce you to some of the up-and-coming players across different technology markets.
We couldn’t put on this event without the help of our sponsors, so we have to take a moment to thank our 2018 platinum sponsor, Nintex; our gold sponsors, Five9 and HelloSign; and our silver sponsor, Nextiva.
RSVP now to enjoy a night of great networking, inspiring award presentations, and delicious food.
See you in two months!
