I don’t have many details but it looks like you can wave bye-bye to the “largest gathering of small and medium businesses in the world”. The Sage Summit conference appears slated to be replaced by a series of local tour stops. The Sage Summit website now refers to the event as Sage Summit Tour and lists several local stops.
Update 11-2-2016: Sage has changed their Sage Summit site ( https://www.sage.com/sage-summit/ ) so it now displays information for their upcoming Paris event November 28-29, 2016 which may mean the site image I captured (above) was not yet ready to be fully deployed. The company has not yet released any official information on their Sage Summit Tour and consultants I spoke with were unaware of it.
Sage is presently displaying 9 stops on the Sage Summit Tour:
Sydney, Australia – March 2017
Toronto, Canada – June 2017
Paris, France – November 2016
Berlin, Germany – March 2017
Singapore – March 2017
Johannesburg, South Africa – March 2017
Spain – February 2017
Atlanta, USA – Spring 2017
London, UK – Spring 2017
The Sage site indicates:
In 2017, Sage Summit evolves into the Sage Summit Tour, the world’s most essential series of events for entrepreneurs and business builders.

Based on this description we expect to see more products and offerings from around the world spotlighted at Sage Summit 2015 in New Orleans on July 27-30, 2015.
In what I believe is a first – Sage North America will allow partners to sponsor and exhibit in their trade show area. Previously the show only accepted sponsorship from those companies selling software products to end users. During the first few iterations of Sage’s inaugural customer conference partners were barred / discouraged from attending unless they also were accompanied by one or more of their customers.
According to this Tweet from the official Sage Summit account partners will be registering on April 9, 2014 for the annual Sage North America Summit conference with only a limited view of the conference agenda. According to Sage more details on the agenda will then be revealed in May.
And, no, we don’t have any details to share about the conference.
@Sawreygirl A brief agenda will be on the #Sage Summit website when registration opens on April 9. More details on agenda revealed in May.
