Four Years at Microsoft Convergence

The Parker Software team are on the move once again for the annual Microsoft event, Convergence.

We will be making the 9 hour journey from the UK Headquarters to the capital of Georgia USA, Atlanta.

This will be the 4th year running where we will join over 400 exhibitors and hundreds more attendees, to show real-time demonstrations of our award winning live chat solution, WhosOn.

As with any event there has been an abundance of schedulingstrategisingbrainstorming and organising and this year we are aiming for our best yet. 

During one of our marketing get-togethers, the team thought it would be a great idea to show some of the more….’sociable’ statistics of our travels.

How it's worked out? The science bit; 4 team members, over 4 Days, for 4 Years.

Just for a little extra, here are 5 interesting statistics about the 9th largest metropolitan area in the United States, ATLANTA;

  • Atlanta is the fifth city to be the capital of the state of Georgia.
  • Almost all directions in Atlanta include the phrase: 'Go down Peachtree.'
  • You can walk,bike ride, in-line skate, skateboard, horseback ride or run from Atlanta to Alabama on the Silver Comet Trail.
