Themeco Summit 2015: Wrap up, Pictures, a Wedding, and More!

- 42 Comments

themecosummit2015

Last week, we welcomed over 50 Themeco customers from all corners of the globe for our first Themeco Summit (#themecosummit) in Las Vegas, Nevada. Over the span of 3 days, we focused on the theme of the event: How To Grow Your Business by 2X.

Monday evening was our kickoff dinner at the Stratosphere. Perched high atop the Las Vegas skyline, we had a great time getting to know one another and connecting with others in the Themeco community. New friendships and business relationships were formed throughout the wonderful dinner followed by hair raising “team building” rides that included being suspended over 1100 feet in the air (and if that wasn’t enough, spun in a circle), and more!

The next morning, it was time to get down to business, where we went through sessions ranging from how to grow your business by 2X to finding/working with $10,000 clients and above to a panel discussion, product announcements, what can we build for you, and more! It was a FULL day of actionable content.

Wednesday saw more of the same with smaller group breakout sessions about strategy, growth, and scaling in addition to behavioral analysis from a very special guest speaker that was out of this world!

It was also extra special that we were able to attend the wedding of two incredible people in the Themeco community (don’t worry, it was planned in advance)! We wish Steve and Jaime the absolute best in their new life together. You all are a blessing.

At the end of the day, we realize that working in a digital business is so much more then just having a pretty theme, and as a company, we are committed to helping our customers grow in more ways than one. Themeco is a labor of love for our entire team, and it was a real joy to be able to connect with a portion of our diverse and growing community. Many exciting product announcements were made related to X, Cornerstone, as well as new services that will be launching soon. We’ll definitely let everyone know when there is more info to share, but for now: Get ready for a BIG 2016!

There is a lot of planning and preparation with a event this size, and a big thanks to all the people responsible for pulling it off. Tip of the hat and big thanks to Cheshire for offering to take pictures of the event! We were also incredibly thankful that so many attendees came from so far away: Israel, New Zealand, Mexico, Canada, England, Austria, the States, and more!

We will continue to work hard each and every day to earn your business as this is what allows us to continue to update and support the growing Themeco ecosystem including putting on events like the Summit. Whether this is your first purchase with us or your 1000th, a big thank-you from all your friends at Themeco!

    Great pics and wrap up. Purchased X earlier this year and it’s awesome. We were able to relaunch our outdated site in nearly record time with all the functions in Cornerstone that made it so easy and more importantly, fun! I think we will be using it for years to come, and also start getting some of our clients hooked on it as well. Hope to make it to the next summit if you do another.

    1. Themeco

      Love hearing that Joe, thank-you! We’ve already started planning the next one so we look forward to having you join us, and a big thanks for the repeat business for both you and your clients!

  2. Jennah Mitchell

    You guys! This conference was hands-down the best either Derrick or I have ever attended. We made fantastic new relationships, and learned a ton. I’m excited to report that we have already been able to apply some of what we learned to two new potential projects! It was fantastic to meet you, you are a wonderful team, and we look forward to continuing to work with you guys and with the X theme long into the future :-)

    1. Themeco

      Wow that is music to our ears, Jennah! Part of the challenge of planning an event like this is wanting to do our best to provide the proper tools and motivation and directions so people can take action on what was learned and not simply file it away in the ol’ brain. We’re thrilled to know you have already found ways to take action…you were listening :) It was an absolute pleasure to meet you and Derrick, and we look forward to the next one!

  3. Boyd

    Best conference, hands down. We will be attending any additional conferences that you guys offer and we have a quote going out this week that is going to look completely different! :)

    Can’t wait for the future and to be the winner of the most X licenses next time!

    1. Themeco

      Love to hear that, Boyd! It was great meeting you and CJ, and we look forward to the next get together…all our best, my friend!

  4. Cheshire

    Thanks again for an amazing conference. It’s fun to go back and see the photos from the first night when I knew no one at the conference, and only two days later had made great connections with so many of those people.

    The content of the presentations was simply outstanding, and I’m looking forward to putting so many of the presenters’ insights and knowledge to work immediately. It was a truly energizing and refreshing experience.

    1. Themeco

      How true that is, Cheshire! Friendships were formed fast that will continue to get stronger. We’re thrilled to have you in the community and a big thanks again for putting together these great shots! Until the next time :)

  5. Steve

    There are a few moments in life when you take a step back and realise that you made the right choice. When hindsight comes round and you laugh knowing that you’re on the right side of it. Themeco is one of those moments. I purchased a theme that said – The last WordPress theme you will ever need and I laughed. Almost 2 years later and I am proud and honoured to say that those words are as true today as they were then. Without a doubt the best investment I have ever made was the infinitesimal $63 that it costs to purchase a licence for the outstanding X theme!

  6. Stephanie E

    Thank you so much for hosting this event for all of us to come together and learn. We had such a great time, genuinely enjoyed meeting everyone, and learned SO much. We look forward to the next Summit!

    1. Themeco

      You’re very welcome, Stephanie! Thank-you both for joining us and your contributions. We look forward to seeing you all at the next one!

  7. Sean Scott

    I was hesitant about attending the event and really did not know what to expect. I am glad I forced myself to go and I have walked away with a wealth of information along with new friends. You guys always exceed my expectations and I have a lot to think about going in to the new year. Thank you guys for doing what you do.

    1. Themeco

      “A wealth of information and new friends” – what a great way to sum it up! Thank-you for joining us, Scott!

  8. Peeps1960

    Excellent product, made life easy for an old man. Great looking team, nice to see who is behind the scenes. If you look at my website you will see that I have left the footer as Powered by X Theme, my question is can I use a couple pics for my website to let my clients see the team behind it all. And I feel the need to leave my footer as is (hope I’m not infringing copyright in doing so?) Peeps60

    1. Themeco

      Appreciate the kind words, Peeps60. Why don’t you contact us, and we can chat further. You are more then welcome to keep the “Powered by X Theme” line at the bottom. We appreciate that!

  9. Derrick

    This event has completely changed our business and life for the better! It was an honor to meet the Themeco team, and my wife and I made some great new friends at the conference as well. We are so grateful for the time and effort you put in to making this happen, and we were blown away with the value of the content in the lectures. We are already putting action to the things we learned and can’t wait to 2x our business in 2016!

    1. Themeco

      That is awesome, Derrick…thank-you both for your contributions and joining us for a few days. It was a real joy to get to know you both! 2X, brother!

  10. Kyle Svenningsen

    Still reeling from this shining example of a seminar and look forward to more to come from Themeco!

    1. Themeco

      :) To date, our Themeco shirts are only given, not purchased. I’m sure we’ll make them available again to future Summit attendees as well as for doing other things in the community. Stay tuned!

  11. Sarah

    Thanks so much for an awesome time and a lot of great insight! We were happy to share all that we learned with our CEO and Project Managers today and plan on implementing many of these strategies to help 2x our business!

    1. Themeco

      Fantastic, Sarah! No time like the present :) We look forward to continuing to work with you all and thank-you again for taking the time to join us!

  12. Brako

    Ditto what Cheshire said. The first day you didn’t know anyone, the third day you felt like you’ve known your Themeco friends for a long time. Then the educational value of the event was through the roof, there’s nothing like learning about how to do well from people that do very well.

    1. Themeco

      Many thanks, Branko! You have a keen sense about getting to the bottom of things and putting to use what you’ve learned. We’re thrilled to have you in the Themeco community, and we look forward to seeing you at the next event!

  13. Ruben

    Hey Guys :)

    So happy for you !

    Did you record some of it for those who couldn’t come ? :p

    Can you publish the announcements you made there ?

    Thanks

    1. Themeco

      Thanks, Ruben! The format wasn’t conducive for recording, but we’ll definitely be sharing the announcements that were made at the proper time. We sort of gave a sneak peak at some things we are working on that will be announced within the next couple months!

  14. Jonathan Lyons

    Hi guys,

    First, congrats to Steve and Jamie!!

    Just wondering if you recorded the summit and if so, do you have any plans on letting those of us tucked away in the smaller parts of the world (like Nova Scotia) get a peek of it? Especially the parts on how to charge more and get bigger clients.

    I now only use X and don’t plan to change!!

    Oh yeah, also, like above, how do we get a Themco T-shirt??

    1. Themeco

      Hi Jonathan,

      Regretfully the event was not recorded, as the format was not conducive. We may drip out some of the content in various formats. With regards to the shirts, they are not available currently…only given away for certain things, but stay tuned!

      We’re thrilled to know you are using X exclusively now!! We greatly appreciate the repeat business, my friend.

      Cheers!

    1. Themeco

      Hey Branko,

      There are no recordings as the event wasn’t recorded, but we are discussing some options related to the content that was shared.

      Cheers!

  15. David B

    That is some great stuff. Taking the theme and community offline makes it so REAL. I will definitely consider going to the next summit or meetup. Do you have something planned?

    1. Themeco

      Appreciate that, David! We’re honored to have such a vibrant and engaged community that continues to grow, and we’re excited to help our customers grow their businesses in more ways than one. We have begun talking about our next Summit but nothing concrete yet. We’ll definitely let customers know next year when there is more info to share, so be sure to stay in touch in our Community area!

  16. Sergio

    You really have to take your hat off to this team! You organized a sublime master class and really made us feel at home. Even I was able to benefit from the magnificent content you shared with us despite my pathetic English :)

    Honestly, I believe you measured up to even the most demanding. Your event conveyed sobriety and commitment, but most of all confidence.
    Aiming at bringing out the best of us to improve returns and productivity is the right approach and I’m sure you’ll see its results very soon. What I’m also certain is that your good work will have a multiplying effect in so many ways. For instance, we’ll have to be very careful to still get a place on the next summit :)

    Your plans only confirm (to those who it isn’t clear to) this sobriety and commitment I was talking about before. And you even managed to pass it on throughout these days, resulting in the assistants’ extraordinary contributions and the level of attention showed by everyone. It was really a summit to take note of. It doesn’t matter how many kilometres you drove. The trip was more than worth it.

    Congratulations and thanks to the entire team and all colleagues! We’ll see each other in the next master class :)

    Many greetings from the Alps!

    1. Themeco

      Thank you ever so much for those heartfelt words, Sergio! It was a privilege to have you all participate and to visit from so far away! We look very forward to continuing to work with you and the next get together :)

      All our best!
