Aspire20 is virtual! What are you going to miss the most?

Since we're virtual this year, we want to stop for a moment and reminisce about all of the things that make the onsite Aspire conference so special to us! 

We certainly have our list of favorites, and we want to hear what you'll miss most this year!

For those of you who have never attended Aspire in Kansas City, we look forward to sharing the onsite experience with you later!  Consider the comments on this post your to-do list for future visits to Kansas City for Aspire!

  • There are a couple of things I will miss not being in person this year.  I will miss the networking dinner events we started last year where a group of individuals selected a date and location and we all met and talked about the conference.  This was a great opportunity for those that tend to stay in their rooms or don't typically socialize an opportunity to hang out with others. We learned a great deal from one another.  I will also miss seeing all the Astra staff and hanging out with Walter.

  • The list is too long to mention here! From great food and company to all of the sessions - I don't think I can decide.  I will definitely miss seeing all of the Astra staff and the networking opportunities to talk with peers about how they are using the software to solve challenges that come up. 

    And of course Maizey!

  • I have attended Aspire twice in person. ( 2017 and 2019) I am in Pittsburgh, so I am already missing the KC BBQ! The networking events are always so much fun. Plus those chair massages. lol

  • I will miss everything! Aspire is my favorite conference of the year. I always leave with such a sense of purpose and excitement learning from others! Sharing stories and learning from people that I respect.

  • As an Astranaut, I will miss seeing attendees and team members get hyped up about the conference. There is always a magical buzz in the morning when we would go get our morning breakfast in preparation for the opening session.

  • Will miss exploring the city, seeing familiar faces and hearing about all the new and exciting products coming in the future. Also always so cool to see what others are doing with the software in ways that really push the boundaries on what it was originally intended to do. That being said, jamming to the club muzak in the background while waiting for next the next session is alright too!

  • Haha, Luke Ling, I just posted a thread about that music!

     

    As far as what I'm going to miss the most? As an Astra staff member, I'm going to miss the face to face connection with our clients and listening to the real life successes, questions, and issues on campus that you all are having when using our software.

  • Hello from California. I will miss the people, the networking, and learning about how other schools use Astra Schedule. I always come away with one pearl of wisdom form each conference that I attend that makes it all worth it.

  • The networking events, one-to-one conversations, the location, the hands on learning, and the KC BBQ!
