It’s that time of year again! And no, we don’t just mean football season, although we are pretty stoked the pigskin has finally returned to our TV screens. But there’s an even bigger event that we are preparing for. The 2017 Tableau Conference is just around the corner and we can’t wait to talk Tableau, explore new products and basically just rub elbows with all of you in the data community.
Terabytes of Fun
TC17 brings the community of Tableau users together in a way no other event can. InterWorks has been attending for six years, back when there were only 500 people in attendance. That may seem like a lot, but not when you compare it to last year’s figure of 12,000 attendees! Ever since our first conference in 2011, this event has been a once-a-year opportunity for everyone interested in Tableau, the clients and sponsors alike, to meet up and discuss the latest in data.
This year promises to be bigger than ever as data takes over Las Vegas. As the first Tableau Gold Partner, we are excited to be a Terabyte level sponsor. We’re known for our leading Tableau training and consulting services, but it’s really our talented and skilled people who make us the most prominent in services terms.
The InterWorks Hub
As one of the top sponsors at the event, we’re bringing all the bells and whistles for our booth this year! We’re talking demos, services, Power Tools sessions, hiring opportunities and so much more, we can’t even fit it all on this blog! If you are in attendance this year, do not forget to stop by our booth for a demonstration, pick up some InterWorks branded swag or just come and hang out and get to know who we are and what we do.

Power Tools for Tableau Takeover
Another reason to checkout our booth is, in a word, Power Tools. Okay that’s two words, but still! Our team will have their own hangout for those of you wanting to see what all the fuss is about. If you haven’t seen a demonstration of Power Tools for Tableau, trust us, the fuss is warranted. Power Tools makes working with Tableau easier and more efficient as it saves the user time and effort. If you’re a frequent and devout Tableau user like we are, Power Tools for Tableau will enhance your Tableau usage in every aspect.

We haven’t even mentioned our favorite part: our people! We’ll have at least 30 consultants in attendance, some of whom are involved in sessions, demonstrations and more. So, it’s always a treat to see the InterWorks family join in the event festivities. Plus, we really just love to support and cheer on our team members. Consultants and analysts from our offices all over the U.S. and Europe will be flocking to the data event of the year. It’s a reunion for us and a chance for attendees to get to know our diverse skillsets and talented team members.
