Milwaukee, WI, November 7, 2023— Lightburn and CI Design, two long-tenured agencies in Milwaukee's Historic Third Ward, are excited to reignite the local Kentico User Group for 2024. This community will focus on supporting marketers, designers and developers across all industries and business sizes who work with the popular Kentico digital experience platform.
The Milwaukee Kentico User Group (MKE KUG) will bring together members to collaborate, learn, share, and network around all things related to the Kentico ecosystem. In reinvigorating this dormant community, agency leaders will furnish guidance for members while inviting input to shape its future for the benefit of all. Using Meetup, their teams will engage members, sponsors and Kentico channel partners with real-world and virtual events, plus discussion threads and resources.
MKE KUG is open to all who interact with Kentico, not just agency employees. In-house corporate teams use Kentico for their customers’ digital experiences are encouraged to join, as is anyone interested in learning more about the platform.
The new cadence of the group is designed to deliver intrinsic value for its attendees. Each month, agency group leaders will share Kentico-related news, moderate conversations, and share partner DXP info directly with group members. MKE KUG will gather downtown or in the nearby suburbs for a quarterly live meetup.
During events, front- and back-end developers can collaborate in a hands-on workshop to talk through current setup issues or discuss their best practices. Marketing professionals and administrators can learn about the latest apps, tools, and use-cases impacting websites, management, personalization practices, and digital marketing ROI. Agency marketing leaders and platform developers will host and attend each event to offer real feedback and support for users and businesses who need a Kentico partner or whose in-house team could use additional guidance.

Product updates from our Kentico partners

“At Kentico, we actively seek ways to expand user support from the ground up. We are excited to invest in local tech-driven events like these with two of our partners. We are looking forward to being an active part of the MKE KUG and seeing Kentico users come together,” said Bill Cunningham, CRO at Kentico.
