Magento’s Imagine Conference is often called ‘legendary’ for many reasons. Whether it’s the unique ‘charm’ of Las Vegas, the anticipation of new product launches or the late night parties, the Blue Acorn team looks forward to Imagine every year.
In honor of Throwback Thursday, we’ve asked some seasoned vets to reminisce on their favorites moments of Imagines past. We hope these get all of you excited for next week. See you at The Wynn!
Ben Marks, Evangelist @ Magento
Favorite moment: “Easy. 2014, Roy Rubin telling the world that I had joined Magento!”

“Kevin’s been to every Imagine since they started. “I remember the very first Imagine in LA. The afterparty was actually at Magento’ headquarters- food trucks in the parking lot and all! Let’s just say The Wynn is a little fancier….”

“Winning partner of the Year in 2015 was definitely my favorite Imagine moment! It’s pretty awesome to be in a room full of peers (and competitors) and be recognized for the awesome work we’ve done! And we got bragging rights for an entire yet!” There was also that time in 2013 when many people ending up it the pool…but I’ll keep my lips sealed on that one!

“It’s hard to choose just one! I think the most memorable parts tends to be the keynote speakers/celebs.
Last year (2016) when Magic Johnson was working the crowd he even kissed a baby! Yes…a baby! At Imagine! Never a dull moment… He also went up to our client from Everlast and chatted with for a while.That was pretty cool to be within arms distance from Magic! He’s huge!!
I was also up close and personal (row 3!) when Steve Wynn spoke in 2015. Imagine had just moved to The Wynn for the first time so it was pretty cool to hear from Mr. Wynn himself. He’s been in Vegas a VERY long time and was the youngest casino owner when he got started.”

“My favorite moments in imagine are during the key notes. Not only do we get to hear about the future of the platform and the newest and coolest features but we get to hear it in an awesome setting with over the top performances and speakers. It always makes for a very memorable and entertaining experience.”
Jon Pruitt, Bronto Channel Development Manager

“I would say that my favorite memory was when Bronto was awarded the “2015 Spirit of Excellence, Technology Partner!”
