Hub 2013 Europe – Anaplan Holds First European User Conference in London

Projected To Be The Largest Dedicated EPM Event In Europe

Anaplan, the fastest-growing provider of business modelling and planning for sales, operations, and finance, will be holding its first annual user conference in Europe on October 2, 2013 at the London Film Museum. Hub 2013 Europe will bring together Anaplanners from across Europe to discuss how social, technological and market forces are converging to disrupt the way enterprises model and plan.

The launch of the annual user conference highlights Anaplan’s rapid growth and market impact both in Europe and globally. In the last twelve months, Anaplan has tripled its European customer base, opened offices in London, Paris, Stockholm and Amsterdam, and doubled its European staff.

“As a company, Anaplan is disrupting the traditional business planning software market and our customers are the proof point of this fact,” said Fred Laluyaux, Anaplan CEO. “At Hub Europe 2013, we are pleased to have global leaders like Aviva, Kimberly-Clark Eastern Europe and HP present how Anaplan is fundamentally reshaping the way they align to business opportunities.”

Through a mixture of keynote and interactive sessions, Hub 2013 attendees will have the opportunity to hear how business users are innovating using the platform. Aviva, the sixth-largest insurance company in the world, will present how it is improving its global forecasting process through use of Anaplan’s cloud-based planning solution across the enterprise. Customers Kimberly-Clark Eastern Europe and HP will demonstrate how using the Anaplan platform can help enterprises become more agile.

In addition to the customer sessions, Anaplan will showcase further breakthrough innovations in its patented HyperblockTM technology and business user interface. The Hyperblock advancements bring unparalleled scalability and power to business modelling, and the interface enhancements enable business users to engage, adopt, and control models in real-time for truly integrated operational planning.

Projected to attract attendees from some of today’s most prominent global brands, the event will be one of the largest EPM conferences held in Europe this year.
