Success on an international scale for a B2B product technology company requires more than developing a fantastic product or solution.

To grow and build its reputation as trustworthy and innovative, a brand that "everyone" wants to be a part of, Fonn Group arranges a yearly User Summit for its customers and key prospects. The event concept, project management, program work, marketing, and execution are done by Synas in close collaboration with Fonn Group.

At the User Summit 2023, customers and end-users of Mimir and Dina shared their experiences, learnings, ideas, and workflows with an audience of 120+ customers, prospects, and partners. 

The User Summit rotates to a new location yearly with a selected co-hosting customer. This year, the event was held in London, close to the GB News headquarters. GB News opened its doors to the summit attendees with a tour that was part of the event program. 

An engaged audience spent two days together, with keynote presentations from the NY Times, GB News, Formula E, TV Syd, NRK, the University of Volda, and others. See this year's program here

Planning and coordination.
Program/agenda work

All promotional assets, with copy and designs
