How can I scale my creative business without sucking all the soul out of it?

What can the large-scale Cloud offer to help me serve my customers better?

How can I find my next customer... or my next 100 customers?

Web Professionals are converging upon Web-Pros in the Cloud at CloudFest 2020. Meet peers, potential partners, and industry influencers to learn how Cloud Service Providers and Web Professionals can forge a brighter future together.

CloudFest is the world’s largest gathering of decision-makers representing cloud infrastructure providers, web hosting providers, ISVs, and MSPs. In 2020, we’re inviting all WebPros out there—who help customers bring their businesses online every day—to join us at this one-of-a-kind festival.

Cloud infrastructure only matters if it helps people to make things happen. Web Professionals and eCommerce enablement organizations form a vital link in the cloud-services demand chain—and CloudFest is the best place to forge that link.

CloudFest is not your typical industry conference

Open Source is important to us

  • Hackathon
  • Open-source sessions
  • Platform for associations and collectives

We know how to connect people

  • Speed Networking: find your new partner fast!
  • Unlike a CMS summit, we connect enthusiasts from all systems with our partners from CMS Garden, Joomla, Plesk, WordPress, and more.

Creativity is in our DNA

  • We take over a theme park for our festival
  • Other conferences bring rock-star marketers onstage, but we bring actual rock stars—we’ve also formed our own band

Nobody does a design degree to study sales funnels

46%

of web designers say that their biggest challenge is finding new clients, making is the most commonly cited pain point of all.

66%

of web designers say that the creative process remains their favourite thing about web design.

Take Your Dreams to Scale

Web Professionals and Cloud Service Providers are Stronger Together

Opportunity in Profit

Partnerships between WebPros and large-scale channels allow both of you to win revenue from different parts of the demand and value chains that you could not access on your own.

Opportunity in Development Tools

When it comes to efficiency and feature creation, web professionals have the most developers—you’ll always outpace other industry players on feature richness, so it makes sense to leverage that in seeking your channel partners.

Opportunity in Trust

The Cloud, by its very nature, is all about outsourcing. It’s easy to trust a web professional on implementation, while continuing to trust a channel partner on management and systems design. Between you and your channel partner, your customer knows that their most valuable work is in safe hands. When you earn your customer’s trust, you make them a partner as well.

WebPros in the Cloud track on our main stages

Cloud Service Providers specialize in lead generation, customer acquisition, and account management. WebPros are career website-builders who live and breathe the creative process. Both disciplines understand the same thing: a great website isn’t a product—it’s a service.

DIFM websites are the next logical step from DIY, especially for small businesses. Find the WebPros who can help you deliver a top-notch customer experience. CloudFest will shed light on the opportunities between CSP and Web Professionals in this special track that addresses WebPros, CSPs, and CSVs alike.
