LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES AT EVERY TURN

Don’t just take our word for it, there’s no shortage of takeaways to bring back to the office.

Thanks, MadCap Software, for a great conference! It was fun, Dublin was a blast! And it was very educational. I’m relatively new to Flare and only expected that attending would help me improve my own Flare capabilities. It certainly did that, but on top of that, the sessions and talking with other attendees in between gave me many great ideas for how my company can better use Flare. Very excited to put those in place now.

Markus Lechleitner | MadWorld 2019 Dublin Attendee

Thank you MadCap Software for my very first MadWorld experience! I was able to take the knowledge gained during the conference and immediately implement the micro content functionality into our documentation– this is now fully in use across our publications for our customers… and looks great!

Get hands-on Support from the Technical Support Team

Have a question regarding your Flare project? Or how a specific feature works? A team member is standing by ready to help. With hands-on guidance from senior level technical support members, the popular support lounge offers the unique opportunity to talk to team members all conference long.

Visiting the support lounge at MadWorld is definitely worth the visit! One-on-one support with specialists. Hands on assistance setting up and troubleshooting projects. You will definitely learn something new. Or just meet great people with the same passion, and sit back, have a good chat and relax.

Jo Claes | MadWorld 2019 Dublin Attendee

Really big thanks to all the people in the Technical Support Lounge. You guys deserve trophies for Herculean patience and listening skills. Thanks for making a newbie feel at ease!

This was my first MadWorld event as well as, my first time in Dublin. The knowledge I have gained will certainly benefit me in the future. It has been an absolute pleasure to engage with a variety of people from all walks of life at this event.

Aaron Parkers | MadWorld 2019 Dublin Attendee

Last but not least: Not Just Your Average Conference

We set out to make the MadWorld conferences truly distinct. Our goal is to maximize value and education and deliver only the highest pedigree of speakers and sessions, to find world-class accommodations, and to provide an environment that is engaging, welcoming and fun.

My second MadWorld Europe conference was just plain awesome; from the venue, sessions, and the fun networking events. But most of all learning about new features from both the MadCap staff and other writers was so helpful. Thanks MadCap Software!

Paula White-Reddy | MadWorld 2019 Dublin Attendee

MadWorld 2019 Dublin was one of the best that I have attended. I look forward to attending again at future MadWorld conferences, and thanks again for inviting me to present at Dublin.
