Two SAFe Summits in 2018: Washington, DC and Frankfurt, Germany

Two SAFe Summits in 2018: Washington, DC and Frankfurt, Germany


Hi Folks,

SAFe just hit another milestone—this year, there will be not one, but two SAFe Summits. The Global SAFe Summit in Washington, DC, and the Regional SAFe Summit, Europe in Frankfurt, Germany. Each Summit has its own unique makeup:

Global SAFe Summit: Washington, DC, October 1 – 5

The Global SAFe Summit is organized around six tracks designed to help you focus on the challenges that are most important to you. Tracks include: SAFe in Government Programs, Lean Portfolio Management, Technical Practices, Leadership and Agile and HR, SAFe Roles, and SAFe Applied.

Regional SAFe Summit, Europe: Frankfurt, Germany, June 25-28

Why two Summits? Well, it’s not because we want to build up our frequent flier miles. Adoption of SAFe is spreading across the globe and EMEA in particular has become a hotbed of growth and activity. The demand for a conveniently located SAFe event in Europe has been enormous and we’re glad to be able to meet that demand in 2018. Expanding the Summit footprint allows us to provide a regional focus where it’s needed while continuing to serve a broader audience with the Global SAFe Summit.

Register early to save dollars and euros

For the Global SAFe Summit, register by March 27, 11:59pm Mountain Time to receive an early bird discount of $300.

For the Regional SAFe Summit, Europe the first 75 registrants will save 100 € on the main conference and 50 € on pre-conference training.

If the Framework has taught us anything, it’s the power of face-to-face knowledge sharing. That’s the real value of the SAFe Summit—it provides a place where you can develop your skills with leading SAFe experts and connect with your peers who have walked in your shoes and understand your challenges. When you are able to tap into the collective experience of this group under one roof, you can understand why this can be such a transformative experience for those attending.

Stay SAFe, and hope to see you at one of the Summits,
