The Laserfiche Empower Conference has always been an opportunity for our customers and partners to share ideas and build relationships with Laserfiche executives, developers and staff. Empower 2021 will be no different, but the experience will be a bit unlike than what you’re used to.

Like our products, we’re taking Empower to the Cloud! Empower 2021 is going to be a fully virtual event, taking place February 22-26, 2021 in an online environment that will enable us to provide you with engaging content, networking, discussion and experiences.

Whether you’re connecting to Empower from your home or your office, you’ll be able to access the best of Empower, no travel required!

  • Inspirational and insightful keynotes from industry thought leaders and Laserfiche executives
  • Educational breakout sessions from Laserfiche customers, partners and experts on solutions, trends and product features
  • One-on-one product training labs, just like you love in-person
  • A virtual exhibit hall with booths and product information from strategic industry partners
  • Access to the Info Center for 1:1 product demos, UX testing and information on Laserfiche community resources
  • Networking, fun and entertainment
  • A library of on-demand product training sessions, so you can learn at your own pace – and keep learning as your skills grow

While we won’t be together in Long Beach, you’ll still get all the insights and inspiration you’ve come to value Empower for!

Why Is Empower Going Virtual?

2020 has forced all of us to change and adapt – in ways that are often uncomfortable. Many of us are working remotely for the first time. Some of us are managing virtual teams. Our work has changed in ways we couldn’t have predicted at Empower in February 2020. But, in crisis there is opportunity. At Laserfiche, we’ve been rethinking how we can better meet your needs. How can we bring Empower to our customers and partners with limited travel budgets, with growing training needs, or who are outside North America? As a technology innovator, how can we innovate using technology to connect our global community?

Making Empower 2021 a fully virtual event enables us to accommodate customers and partners under travel restrictions – and has the added benefit of enabling us to expand Empower outside our immediate community.

Who’s Invited to Empower?

For the first time, we are opening Empower to more than just Laserfiche customers and partners. Any IT or business leader who is interested in learning how Laserfiche products can help improve customer or citizen services, streamline critical processes or support a remote workforce is welcome to attend. Or, if you’d like to learn more about COVID-19 solutions that can help maintain business continuity, protect revenue streams or manage reopening, you’re welcome to join us at Empower.

We’re also expanding our virtual exhibit hall, bringing in sponsors who can help you work more effectively in changing circumstances, whether that’s through association membership, hardware, software or professional services. Interested in being a part of Empower? Let’s talk.

What Will the Agenda Be Like?

While it will still be five days long, the Empower agenda will look a little different than in years past. This year, we’ll be offering two days of keynotes and breakout sessions and three days of hands-on training. Worried about missing all the networking and connections you make in Long Beach? Don’t! We’ll have plenty of opportunities for you to mingle with your #FicheFriends, from user groups to Development Q&As and more.

  • Leading Through Change – If 2020 has show us anything, it’s that change is tough.
