Google Premier Partner Summit
27 september 2016 – Amsterdam.
Google has been working with Google Partners for a number of years now. Only recently they added a special qualification: Premier Partner. This qualification is aimed towards only the top agencies in terms of managed advertising budgets, certifications and client support. Premier Partners may be recognized by the red Partners badge.
This Partner Summit was organized especially for Premium Google Partners from the Benelux and Northern Europe, over 180 agencies from 8 countries. The event took place at the Kromhouthal which is a stunning venue with an industrial feel to it and amazing views over the IJ waters next to Amsterdam Central station.
Google had arranged for a number of inspiring speakers, including:
Jesper Eiby Christoffersen – Head of Marketing for Google Denmark and Head of SMB Marketing for Northern Europe
Helene Ambiana – Head of Google Partners for EMEA
Ajaz Ahmed – Founder and CEO at AKQA
Johan Ronnestam – Entrepeneur
Robert Craven – Managing Director The Directors’ Centre
Eddie Obeng – TED speaker
They all talked about the future of agencies and how fear can hold you back in taking the necessary steps in order to prepare your agency for the future.
Google made sure non of us had the slightest chance of getting bored, as they arranged a number fun games, challenges and other great activities throughout they dat. And for the die hards a VIP closing party at a super yacht through the Amsterdam Harbor waters, with great snacks, DJs, cocktails and lots of laughter and newly acquired inspiration!
