On October 11th and 12th, we were lucky enough to co-host the first annual Umbraco US Festival here in our hometown of Chicago, IL, at mHub, Chicago's first innovation center focused on physical product development and manufacturing.

Here are a few numbers from the conference:
- 140 Umbraco developers and marketers
- 16 Umbraco Partner agencies represented
- 22 speakers and panelists
For this conference, we wanted to take a different approach and focus on both the development and business aspects of Umbraco. We wanted to showcase how developers are not only able to use Umbraco to build beautiful and engaging websites, but how marketers and business owners can use Umbraco to move their business forward through better content, more integrations, and thinking outside of the box to better attract, inform, and convert their most coveted target audiences and prospects.
To accomplish this, we brought together the best minds in the Umbraco development and business world for two days, closing the loop on Umbraco's full capabilities from code to analysis. Here are some highlights from the conference:
