Bletchley Park hosts Kong’s EMEA Partner Briefing

A special thank you to our EMEA Kong Channel Partners! We just shared an amazing week at Kong’s new UK office located in Bletchley Park where the team outlined Kong’s technical capabilities, business strategies, and roadmap for continued success.

It was great spending several days working with our partners. Not only did we share a knowledge transfer of Kong, but we got to meet our incredible partners in person. We view our channel partners as an extension of the Kong team. The time together was an invaluable experience that further strengthened our relationships.

In addition to Kong’s workshops and knowledge transfer sessions, we also toured The National Museum of Computing. “The National Museum of Computing, located on Bletchley Park, is an independent charity housing the world’s largest collection of functional historic computers, including the rebuilt Colossus, the world’s first electronic computer, and the WITCH, the world’s oldest working digital computer. The museum enables visitors to follow the development of computing from the ultra-secret pioneering efforts of the 1940s through the large systems and mainframes of the 1950s, 60s and 70s, and the rise of personal computing in the 1980s and beyond.”

We’d like to thank the entire team at Bletchley Park. The museum and staff became a wonderful second home to everyone attending the event. Kong is looking forward to building our European team in this incredible location for years to come.

Our next Kong Partner Briefing takes place July 10th – 12th in Santiago, Chile. We can’t wait to meet our LATAM partners!
