6 Reasons Beyond is The Must Attend Analytics & AI Conference of 2019

No matter what industry or role you’re in, everyone is talking about data. It’s become the most important asset for companies. Those using it effectively are growing and thriving. Those that aren’t are dying on the vine.

With technologies like IoT, cloud, and AI taking off, the digital revolution is just beginning. Taking the leap into the future is never easy, but no one can afford to maintain the status quo.

Take control of your digital destiny at Beyond, the can’t miss data and AI conference of the year. From leading innovators to real world case studies to inspiring keynotes, Beyond is the show of the year to attend if you want to charge into the future.

While there’s something for everyone at Beyond, here are six of the top reasons (though we could keep going!) to head to Dallas October 15-17th.


There’s a stellar lineup of speakers, changemakers, and innovators guaranteed to supercharge your time in Dallas, such as:

  • Changemaker Mick Ebeling’s keynote pushes you to a whole new stratosphere of thinking, sharing how leveraging digital platforms and data can help you out-innovate your competitors. Check out the 2011 TED Talk on his first project: The Eyewriter, named by Time Magazine as one of the “Top 50 Inventions of 2010”.

  • Shawn Achor, best-selling author of The Happiness Advantage and Big Potential, joins our keynote speakers to share the connection between happiness and success. And what success he’s had! In 2014 Oprah did a two-hour interview on his research, which has made the cover of Harvard Business Review.

  • You’ll also hear how business leaders at forward-thinking companies including Walmart, BT, 7-11, Suncorp, and more are using search & AI to supercharge their analytics strategy. See the full list of speakers here.
