Global Partner Summit 2017

How do you build in a world that moves fast?

At this year’s Global Partner Summit, we’re encouraging Partners to Build Beyond. The summit – our biggest Partner event of the year – is happening October 4th and 5th at The Palace of Fine Arts and Exhibition Center in San Francisco. It’s our annual event where we talk about Facebook, Instagram and Messenger product roadmaps, share key opportunities for growth and give Partners a place to connect with each other and share ideas.

Our theme for this year’s summit is “Build Beyond”. It’s an invitation to be bold in how we build and grow at a time when products, people and ideas change faster than ever. It’s our call to take risks, and to take them together – knowing that when we dare to go big, we can accomplish amazing things.

On day one of the summit we’ll focus on current products and solutions, as well as explore insights about customer segmentation and various verticals. On day two, we’ll pivot to looking ahead – exploring where we see opportunities to “Build Beyond”.

Keynote speakers include Gene Alston, VP of Partnerships, who will kick off the event. Maria Smith, Director of Product Management, will discuss the power of nonlinear innovation, and challenge us to think about new ways to build. On day two, David Marcus, VP of Messaging Products, will share roadmaps for Messenger. Joining them will be speakers on Facebook and Instagram roadmaps, as well as special guest speakers with inspiring stories of successful innovation and growth.

Global Partner Summit is invitation only and admits one person. If you haven’t received an invitation, please reach out to your Partner manager.

Can’t make the summit? You can tune in during the event to watch select keynotes, broadcast on Facebook Live on the Facebook Marketing Partners page. After the event, we’ll post videos from the entire event, also on the FMP page. And even if you can’t be there in person, we still invite you to think about how you can “Build Beyond” on our platforms. Every day, Partners are discovering new solutions using our platforms that take marketing to new heights in new ways – and this is just the beginning.

We’re excited to share this year’s Global Partner Summit with you.
