Welcome to KEG 2019

For KEG 2019 we have designed a 5-day schedule allowing attendees to explore the Kinetic Platform at different levels. From solution overviews, customer stories, and product direction discussions to how-to and lab breakouts, KEG 2019 promises to be bigger and better than ever.

This year, full-day training has been replaced by practical 90-minute breakout sessions on specific topics such as building complex forms, designing approval workflows, integrating with external products, React, Docker, and standard bundle components. Attendees can choose which breakouts to attend to tailor-make their KEG experience.

We’ve also lowered the registration costs. Attend the full week for just $1500! If you can’t stay the entire week, attend up to three days for $1000. Monday - Wednesday is designed to be areas of general interest, overviews, and strategic direction; Wednesday - Friday is designed to be more in-depth how-to and lab breakouts.

We are looking forward to see you at the Mall of America this coming April!
