SendGrid Delivered, our national email deliverability tour, stopped in San Francisco a few weeks ago for a day of good discussion, interesting guest speakers and great tips on improving email systems. We had the opportunity to talk to many local companies about the role of email in their company, SendGrid’s part in improving email communications, and what’s next for them.
One of the highlights of the event was hearing from guest speakers. Dylin Redling from BranchOut, Nimish Parmar and Tali Leff from StumbleUpon, and Mike Preuss from Formspring each provided unique insight into email from a startup perspective, and shared the interesting ways SendGrid API’s have changed the way they do business.
We had many of SendGrid’s email experts in attendance, including Industry Relations and Deliverability Manager Paul Kincaid-Smith, Developer Evangelists Elmer Thomas and Adria Rchards, Product Manager Brian O’Neill, and Marketing Director Carly Brantz among many others. Aside from leading some compelling sessions, we got to have one-on-one communication with many of the attendees to answer their specific questions on deliverability, SendGrid API’s, and the world of transactional email.
We are all looking forward to the final stop for SendGrid Delivered next week in Denver, home of our newest office! This will be an afternoon event followed by a happy hour at SendGrid Denver. It’s free but space is very limited so reserve your seat today!
