The 2016 Imagine Conference hosted by Magento is to be held at the Wynn in Las Vegas Nevada April 11- 13. Attendees can expect a large gathering as over 2,500 commerce experts spanning everything from developers and agencies to merchants and tech providers arrive to soak in everything Magento. This three day event features over 70 hours worth of sessions with more than 65 executives and 25 retailers across the eCommerce landscape. In addition to these regular sessions there are also a number of keynote speakers whom include:

  • Mark Lavelle CEO Magento
  • Peter Sheldon VP Head of Strategy Magento
  • Michael Sonier Senior Director of Omnichannel Products Magento
  • Paul Boisvert VP of Product Management Magento
  • Earvin “Magic” Johnson Chairman and CEO of Magic Johnson Enterprises
  • Jamie Clarke, Co-Founder and Extreme Adventurer LiveOutThere.com
  • Scott Huckleberry SVP and CIO St. John Knits
  • Steve Fusco, VP GM of North American Distribution PayPal
  • Kai Schmidhuber SVP of Multichannel Fraport
  • Steven King Head of Information Systems Kurt Geiger

It is believed Magento will announce several innovations that will build upon their newly released system Magento 2. However if you’re wondering what people actually expect from the #RoadToImagine, this year the focus seems to be on the Magento Community itself. Of course attendees will likely learn something new, perhaps strike up a few new business relationships, or generate some good ideas. But people seem to just want to have a good time and celebrate the community that has formed over the years surrounding this leading eCommerce solution. Fortunately, they’re doing it in Las Vegas!
