Save the date for Connect 21: Innovation. Interaction. Inspiration.

It’s time to save the date for Connect 21!The Spok annual user conference will be held Oct. 11-13 at the Fairmont Hotel in Dallas, Texas.

We’re excited to see customers in person, and we’ll be doing our absolute best to keep attendees safe and healthy while at the event. We’d love if every customer could attend, but if an in-person event doesn’t seem like a fit, we’re hosting Connect 21 in a virtual format as well. The virtual event will consist of shortened content tailored for digital learning, hosted after the in-person event. Please stay tuned for more information about Connect 21 Virtual.

We pride ourselves on making each year’s event better than the last. If you’ve been to an in-person Connect conference, you know those are some big shoes to fill, especially after meeting virtually in 2020. Check out the recap of Connect 19 in Orlando to see what you can expect.

Here are 4 reasons to save the date for Connect 21 in Dallas:

The in-person event will consist of opportunities to network, hands-on training from experts, and expanded content.

1. The networking opportunities

We know that networking and connecting with others has been difficult in the virtual environment we’ve been living in. Connect 21 will give you a safe space to network with other healthcare professionals who have been dealing with similar situations during the COVID-19 pandemic. There will be plenty of opportunities to talk with Spok experts and your fellow attendees, from casual 1:1 chats between sessions to group breakfasts and lunches to fun evening events. It seems so simple, but we miss connecting with you face-to-face – and we can’t wait!

2. To hear from experts and industry speakers

The conference will be packed full of insightful presentations, including case studies from fellow customers, sessions addressing the future of healthcare communications, panel discussions, and more. Representatives from the Spok executive leadership team, product strategy, development, professional services, and support departments will be able to answer questions, share their expertise, and facilitate discussions during breakout sessions and 1:1 meetings. We’re excited for you to see what we have in store!

3. Get an exclusive look at new technology

Connect 21 will offer a deeper dive into Spok Go®, our cloud-native communication platform that we officially launched in 2020. Visit the Expert’s Lab to meet with Spok Go experts. See a full demo of the platform and learn how you can solve communication challenges across your health system by connecting clinical teams with the people and information they need when and where it matters most. You don’t want to miss it!

4. The fun evening events!

Chances are, “fun events” have been lacking in your life this past year. The night events we have planned for Connect 21 will be as fun as they will be safe. We’ll do our best to make you feel comfortable and have a blast at the same time! Fairmont Dallas is ideally located in the heart of the downtown Dallas Arts District, surrounded by an array of fine-dining restaurants, shopping, arts, and entertainment. We can’t wait to host you on the pool terrace for some Texas fun!

The Connect experience is so unique because of you. We’re looking forward to seeing you at Connect 21 in Dallas!
