San Jose, Calif., August 29, 2018 -- Wrike, the collaborative work management platform for high-performance teams, announced today that its first annual user conference, Wrike Collaborate, will be held October 1-2 at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square Hotel. This event is a unique opportunity for more than 300 industry leaders to come together for two days of keynotes and interactive workshops on strategies for achieving operational excellence in the Digital Workplace and succeeding in today’s global economy.

“The pace of innovation and change in the global market is incredibly fast today, making seamless collaboration and advanced work management central to thriving in the Digital Workplace,” said Wrike CEO and Founder Andrew Filev. “We believe it’s important to gather everyone across our ecosystem - customers, partners, analysts, thought leaders - to not only discuss the latest technological developments, but also share our collaboration stories and the valuable lessons gleaned along our journeys. All of Wrike is excited for this event and the opportunity to celebrate our most important investors - our customers.”

Philz Coffee CEO Jacob Jaber will join Wrike executives to talk about building a great team that reflects the values of a brand and ensuring that those values are maintained as a company grows.

"The very way work gets done has changed dramatically over the last decade and this evolution is showing no signs of slowing,” said Jaber. “This can be both terrifying and exciting at the same time.  Holding events like this where people can come together to share lessons from their wins, losses, and everything in between, is invaluable. One thing that will never change is the importance of customers- giving our teams all of the tools and resources they need to stay focused on delivering the products or services that make your customers happy is key."

Wrike Collaborate will feature over 30 general and breakout sessions across three unique tracks to educate attendees on the latest innovations in collaborative work management and empower them with tips and tactics to execute with excellence.
