All there is to know about the Umbraco Gold Partner Summit.

Written by Anders Trans Sørensen

You may have heard about the Umbraco Gold Partner Summit. If you were curious about what exactly this event entails, you’ve come to the right place. The summit is an event we hold every year, just before Codegarden, where we invite Umbraco Gold Partners from all over the world to come and discuss things Umbraco. This year it will happen on May 22nd in Odense.


The summit is an opportunity for our Gold Partners get a hands-on overview and influence the development and strategy of Umbraco.

The Umbraco Gold Partner Summit is exclusively for our Gold Partners and usually takes place at Umbraco HQ.

However this year, as our partner circle has expanded as well, we’ll host the summit at a new venue in the heart of Odense at Fynsk Erhverv (eng. Funen Business).


The purpose of the summit is to engage in dialogue with our Gold Partners about the future of Umbraco as a project, service, community, and partner.

I will be the one kickstarting the event by giving an overview of what you can expect from this year’s summit and a status of the work done from last summit. Updates on the latest partner relevant news and current focus areas will also be given.

And if you need just a little bit more of convincing, see what other Gold Partners had to say about their experience at the summit:


"Ever since 2011 when we became a Gold Partner we were looking forward to a dedicated Gold Partner meetup. After the summit had kicked off, it turned out to be an amazing platform to learn the latest Umbraco news from a business perspective. It was a wonderful way to discuss topics that had been on my mind with the HQ staff and the other Gold Partners as well. Until today, this has not changed. The Gold Partner summit gives us the resources to be a better partner while adjusting our business activities accordingly," Christian Wendler, Founder & CEO, byte5

"We attend the Gold Partner Summit as an exciting build-up to Codegarden which is a brilliant opportunity to network with fellow Gold Partners and strengthen our relations and cooperation with them. At the Summit we expect to strengthen the relations to existing partners and meet new contact persons with an interest in PIM," Jacob Kruse, CEO, Struct
