You Are Invited to the BlackBerry Summit

CORPORATE / 08.10.23 / Neelam Sandhu

#TeamBlackBerry – customers, partners, investors, analysts, media – I am delighted to personally invite you to attend the BlackBerry Summit, our biggest event of the year, taking place in New York on October 17, 2023.  

This new and expanded event, anchored around the theme of ‘Trust,’ will provide a panoramic view into BlackBerry’s strategy, roadmap, and latest innovations. As well, together with some of the leading voices in Enterprise IT and the IoT, the event will enable important conversations about the security and connectivity technologies required to unlock the many, untapped benefits of a hyperconnected world, to transform how you benefit from and trust digital technologies.

As BlackBerry’s Chief Elite Customer Success Officer – and in my recently expanded role as the company’s Chief Marketing Officer – I’ve heard from many of you that you want to engage more with BlackBerry. You want to experience, and in some cases reconnect with, the BlackBerry you know and love – and above all, that you trust. This sentiment has strengthened as you have advanced in your digital transformation journeys and increasingly require security and connectivity that’s unmatched and can be trusted.  

I hope you’ll join us at the BlackBerry Summit, for a range of personalized experiences, with keynotes, tracks, demos, private roundtables, and networking – all designed to help you discover who BlackBerry is today, and how we are changing the way the world lives and works as a software company.  

Registration is open now, and space is limited, so please secure your spot. I look forward to seeing you there!
