NetSuite recently held its first client and partner conference in London. The conference called SuiteConnect UK was based at clients, partners, developers and prospects based in the EMEA region. The opening keynote was given by CEO Zach Nelson and CTO and co-founder Evan Goldberg. During the keynote both speakers promised a greater commitment to grow and support new business in the EMEA region and this was evidenced in over 700 attendees showing up on the day when only 500 were originally expected.
Nelson spoke about NetSuite’s increased focus on the UK and European markets, saying business in Europe grew 100 percent in 2013 and citing the recent acquisition of London-based commerce firm Venda as a case in point. “Our investment in Venda this year was about investing in domain expertise in Europe. It was our largest acquisition to date. It’s bringing our companies together and getting us to focus on the next great opportunity for growth, and that’s Europe” said Nelson.
There will also soon be announcements about two in-region data centers. The locations of these have yet to be decided, but it seems likely that Germany or Switzerland may be the fore-runners.
Throughout out the day attendees were able to attend breakout sessions on some of the market verticals where NetSuite excels such as Wholesale Distribution, Manufacturing, Retail and Professional Services.
