Imagine presents an incredible opportunity for commerce practitioners from every corner of the retail, wholesale and technology space to take a step back and reflect on the opportunities for growth, innovation, and collaboration in commerce and across industries. On top of all that, Imagine is a seriously-fun few days!
Each year, we hear about inspiring #roadtoimagine journeys from around the world, but there are always community members who aren’t able to make the journey. As part of our #roadtoimagine this year, we wanted to bring new faces together from across the community to experience Imagine, so we’ve expanded this program to include a peer-nominated Community Spirit Awards program for community members who have never attended Imagine.
@MageTalk Each yr, 10 ppl nominated by employees go to Imagine. Will sponsor 10 more in '18 nominated/supported by Magento Community. Deal?
