Our SuiteWorld 2015 conference isn’t only a chance for you to learn about the latest NetSuite functionality; it’s also a great opportunity to hear about and influence where we head next on our mission to transform business management software. It’s a journey we want to take with you, so here are some suggestions for what to check out at the ‘suite future’ focused show.

Whatever you do, don’t miss the keynote address by NetSuite Founder and Chief Technology Officer Evan Goldberg on Wednesday, May 6 at 9:00 a.m. PT. Evan’s keynote will be packed with new and future NetSuite functionality and cool product demos, not to mention being a lot of fun – Evan has been known to morph into Breaking Bad’s Walter White or buy a Lexus LFA on-stage. Who knows what’s in store for this year.
Another must-visit is our User Experience Lab at the SUITEdemogrounds. Here, NetSuite designers and product managers will share the designs for future products and functionality. They’re excited to meet you and welcome your feedback and input through our on-site interactive usability testing.

Do plan on an early start Wednesday morning. Prior to Evan’s keynote, you can participate in the Product Roundtable Breakfasts which start at 7:30 a.m. PT. It’s a great chance to sit down (and grab some breakfast) with NetSuite product managers and have a conversation about NetSuite’s current and upcoming functionality. Tables are set up by topic or by industry, 19 in all, so please come along and choose the area you’re most interested in discussing, whether it’s financials, HCM, omnichannel commerce, nonprofit management, retail, or many others.

To dig deeper into your own specific use of NetSuite, please pre-register for a SUITEguru session. In your private 30-minute session with a NetSuite technical product expert, you can log into your NetSuite account and go through workflows, learn new best practices, and uncover functionality that may be new to you. SUITEguru sessions run Monday through Thursday, but these private sessions are extremely popular and fill up quickly so sign up now by logging into your ‘MySuiteWorld’ account.

Of course, there are the breakout sessions – over 200 on tap – providing insight into the latest functionality in NetSuite and plenty of titbits about what’s coming next. We also have some sessions with a strong focus on future product strategy including:

  • MKS2260 – Commerce Strategy and Roadmap: Ecommerce, Point of Sale & Order Management, Tuesday, May 5 at 2:30 p.m. PT
  • DEV2347 - SuiteCloud Roadmap: What’s New, What’s Next, Wednesday, May 6 at 2:00 p.m. PT
  • FIN2840 – What’s New, What’s Next: NetSuite ERP Up-Market Financials, Thursday, May 7 at 1:00 p.m. PT

Finally, let’s not forget all those great informal meetings at SuiteWorld – between sessions, at meal times, and at our social events. I encourage you to seek out the more than 100 NetSuite product managers and engineers we’ll have on-site to talk about your current NetSuite deployment and your future plans. Let’s engage at SuiteWorld!
