Coupa Inspire 19

It’s hard to believe that Coupa Inspire’19 North America, held June 24-27th, is next week! The event has grown so much in attendance and delivers so much content that we moved it to Las Vegas, Nevada at The Cosmopolitan Hotel. This event will bring together thousands of Business Spend Management (BSM) leaders and visionaries to share stories of transformational change and experience the power of the Coupa community with a vibe that makes this event unlike other gatherings. 

Themed Spend Smarter. Together., Coupa Inspire’19 is the platform for attendees and partners to fully immerse themselves in the Coupa community and have some fun too. After all, it is Vegas!

This will be my fifth year collaborating with the event sponsors and attending Inspire. I’ve had the pleasure of developing an ever-evolving, robust sponsorship program that promotes networking throughout the entire ecosystem, or Village, as we like to call it.

The value that our 50+ partners bring to our customers, prospects, and even Coupa attendees is immeasurable. They are key hosts at the event and huge contributors to the overall success of Coupa in general.

With a balanced representation from our partner ecosystem, event sponsors include our:

  • Systems Integrators (SIs) – These partners have developed robust Coupa practices over the years. They have deep industrial knowledge, procurement and business transformation consulting expertise, as well as implementation experience. They have literally implemented hundreds of Coupa projects and are key to our go-to-market strategy.
  • CoupaLink Certified Technology Partners and Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) – Based on Coupa’s API-based open integration platform, our Coupalink partners integrate their unique products with Coupa – ultimately helping customers adopt Coupa faster at a significantly lower cost. As our platform vision continues to evolve, these partners are essential for us to achieve comprehensive solutions to meet all of our ecosystem’s needs.
  • Coupa Advantage Suppliers – Meet with Coupa’s premier, trusted suppliers to start saving money on your everyday business spend, including office supplies, promotional products, rental cars, and more! Often, the savings that customers are able to achieve from day one more than covers the subscription cost of Coupa.
  • Coupa Pay Partners – These partners are a critical part of the ability to execute on our payment vision, assisting us with the last “P” in P2P. We have a dedicated area in the Expo Village that highlights the companies that are key to our ability to execute on this exciting new space for Coupa. Coupa Pay’s strategic partners add tremendous value to our customers by helping them not only spend smarter, but pay smarter too.

I’d like to thank all of our sponsors for making Coupa Inspire ’19 possible, with a special shout out to our highest level Titanium sponsors, KPMG, Citibank, and Accenture; as well as our Platinum sponsors, Amazon Business/AWS and Deloitte. Coupa appreciates your long-term partnership and recognizes the investment you have made in Inspire ’19 and Coupa overall. We could not do this without all of you.

It’s not too late to register for Coupa Inspire'19. It promises to be an experience well worth your time and investment. And if you’re already registered, stop by the Coupa Expo Village. We look forward to seeing you!
