Gummy Bears, Yo-Yos, and Theme Parks | WHD.Global Recap

What do you get when you pair a remote area of Germany, thousands of techies, and a random amusement park? Well, you end up with what happens to be one of the most important and needless to say interesting conferences the web hosting industry has to offer.


This past week the cPanel team headed across the Atlantic to Rust, Germany and spent some quality time with our friends, partners, and customers at WorldHostingDays Global (WHD.Global).


While any opportunity to speak with our clients and partners excites us, this time we were especially thrilled. After months of toiling away, the new cPanel branding made its debut at WHD. Our new website, logo, colors, and fonts were on full display at our booth along with the newest cPanel messaging. But don’t let our spiffy business threads fool you, guests to our booth were also greeted with gummy bears, yo-yos, and cheerful conversation.

As with any conference, there was plenty of learning and knowledge sharing that went on as well. Not only did we explain the future of cPanel & WHM in our product roadmap, but our marketing whiz, Stephen Brent May, gave an exciting presentation on transferring agile practices to the world of marketing.


In the after hours, we allowed guests to come and hang out in our special lounge at the Colloseo Hotel Bar. It was here that we were able to unwind from our long days on the conference floor and catch up with our old and new pals in the hosting sphere.
