HERNDON, Va. – August 9, 2018 – Deltek, the leading global provider of software and information solutions for project-based businesses, announced today its world-class lineup of speakers and sponsors for Deltek Insight 2018. This year’s event will be held November 5-8 at the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center, located just outside Dallas, TX. Insight is the annual gathering of over 3,000 Deltek customers and partners that meet to network, learn more about Deltek solutions and services, and discuss industry best practices. Conference attendees will have the opportunity to discuss and interact with their Deltek solutions at over 300 breakout sessions and numerous networking opportunities.

Keynotes featuring The Four Oarsmen and Deltek CEO Mike Corkery to Kick Off Insight ‘18

On Monday, November 5, the Insight General Session will kick off three days of keynotes, hosted by Mike Robbins – author, thought leader and sought-after keynote speaker who teaches people, leaders, and teams to infuse their lives and businesses with authenticity and appreciation. Deltek CEO Mike Corkery will take the stage to give an update on Deltek and what to expect the next three days at Insight. Joining him on Monday, The Four Oarsmen will return to Insight once again! Back to tell their amazing story of accomplishment, the four men will share stories from their epic journey rowing 3,000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean —including how they trained, the obstacles they faced and how they prepared for the 2017 Talisker Whisky Challenge.

Throughout the week, attendees will hear from Deltek executives diving deeper into Deltek’s product roadmap and highlighting some of the amazing projects and results Deltek customers have achieved. And on Wednesday, November 7, Johnny Cupcakes, inspirational speaker, entrepreneur and creative innovator, will close out Insight with an inspirational keynote. Johnny Earle grew a traditional business idea into a multi-million dollar, exclusive brand beloved by die-hard fans around the world. Johnny will share his blueprints for success on building brand loyalty and creating unforgettable experiences such as his bakery-themed T-shirt shops.

And newly branded The Xpo, this year nearly 30 sponsors will join Deltek at the Gaylord Texan in the exposition space. This year’s sponsors include Insight 2018’s Diamond Sponsor – Baker Tilly – and Platinum Sponsors BDO, Kinetek Consulting, NeoSystems, and PCI.

“The Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center is the perfect setting for hosting our global user conference.  After last year’s record setting attendance, we are expanding the program this year with more keynotes and more opportunities to network with industry thought leaders.  Attendees can get hands-on with the software and information solutions that enable superior levels of project intelligence, management and collaboration. We expect over 3,000 of our customers and partners to come together and engage on topics critical to running their project based businesses,” said Perry Hardt, CMO at Deltek. “We couldn’t put on this world-class event without support from our partners and our entire Deltek team. Together, we will make Insight 2018 another record-setting event!”

Deltek will be one of the first groups to utilize the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center’s latest addition, the Vineyard Tower, part of its $115M expansion project that was completed earlier this year. To find out more about the Gaylord Texan hotel visit them online.
