With Magento Live Europe just around the corner, we’re gearing up for one of the biggest Magento events of the year. Before we pack our bags and head to Europe though, there are a couple of other events that we’ve been excited about attending all year, and that you definitely shouldn’t miss out on.
Since September is one of the busiest Magento event times of the year, we’ve brought together the events we’re planning to attend, so you can pick and mix based on where your favorite Magento hosting company are going to be.
If you can’t make it, we’ll be publishing what we think the main Magento takeaways are from each event. So keep an eye on our blog post-event.
What to Know Before You Go
Magento events have a lot of opportunities for merchants, developers, and everyone in between. In order to take the most away from these opportunities, it’s important to know what they are and where you’ll find them.
Before launching into the events themselves, we want to make sure you know what you can expect from each of them.
All Magento events have sessions. They range from highly technical to more business orientated, and are probably your best source of information at a Magento event.
Before attending, take a look at the event’s website to see what sessions they have in place and which really speak to you and your needs. Try to manage a timetable where you can take advantage of all three things on this list, but prioritize the most important sessions. After all, you’re probably attending a Magento event to learn.
Sponsors are a big part of the Magento community, and almost every event has at least a handful of them. They’re great to talk to because they can potentially provide you with some awesome ideas for how to improve your Magento store.
They’re also a really good source for keeping a pulse on the Magento community. Most of the time they know what’s happening, who’s who, and what the latest developments have been. Why not go over and ask they about their Magento experiences, if nothing else.
We’ll be sponsoring several of the events below and will have our own booth. Come and talk to the team to learn more about how we’re a cloud company that has been with Magento since the start and will continue to support Magento merchants no matter what.
We know, after a long day of listening to sessions and speaking to sponsors, you probably just want to go home. But wait, there’s still more!
Networking events often take place around Magento events. They offer a good place to meet fellow merchants and developers, and continue that conversation with that one sponsor.
We suggest making an appearance and talking to a handful of people, at least. The Magento community is really helpful and supportive of newcomers and existing faces alike.
These events also tend to come with free food and drink as well!
Meet Magento NYC 2019
September 5-6, 2019
Meet Magento New York is the only Meet Magento event in the US. It provides existing and new Magento merchants with a space for meeting and discussing developments in ecommerce.
It’s also a great chance to meet some Magento sponsors, discuss best practices, and just become a part of the community.
This year, our very own VP, Josh Ward, will be discussing what Magento 1 merchants can do after the End of Life in June 2020. We’ll take a look at what you need to be paying attention to, how it’s going to affect the Magento community, and why even Magento 2 merchants should be keeping an eye out.

Mage X Austin
September 13-14, 2019
Mage X events are the place to be if you’re looking to learn more about the application that underlies your ecommerce solution. As a space of learning, Mage X events tend to offer diverse sessions on business and technical topics. You’ll walk away from this knowing a lot more about Magento than you did coming in.
Don’t forget to take advantage of everything on show this year, including a focus on PWA and Headless. Learn more about what it means to code headless or PWA stores, and how they benefit a variety of business models.
This year, our very own Magento Master, Miguel Balparda, will be leading a panel about Community Engineering. Here he’ll talk about what it means to be a maintainer, and how you can contribute to an Open Source project too.
Meet Magento Poland
September 16-17 , 2019
Meet Magento Poland has been going since 2012, and every year the number of attendees only grows.
Just like any other Meet Magento session, Poland offers a perfect opportunity to learn more about Magento and meet interesting people involved in creating the ecommerce platform.
Make sure to join in with the Q&A sessions and ask any questions you have. Also don’t miss out on talking to the Magento representatives onsite. With over 600 attendees expected to be present, it may seem like a busy event but it’s also very personable.
This year, we’re going to be attending, so keep your eyes out for Nexcess team members walking the floor and joining you in the sessions. Don’t be shy, come and say hi!
