Multiple companies worldwide work hard for this unifying goal and Top Contributions Awards across the Magento global partner ecosystem became a well-deserved recognition of their ongoing efforts.

Imagine 2016 is going to become a unique event edition since it is held just after the M2 release primarily aiming to establish the new platform a rightful Magento 1 successor among community members and worldwide.

We also share the passion and thrill about the new platform opportunities and will bring them in the news regarding our latest Magento 2 extensions, their functionality and technical background. In the last six months we developed 12 fully operational Magento 2 solutions including high-priority features, integration, functional and unit tests.

Even more, we have a lot of modules to be developed this year in our roadmap and are ready to discuss our plans with our customers and partners during the conference. So, we invite you to join us on April 11-13 in Las Vegas.

Our Imagine 2016 Team

While you stopped for a moment considering and planning your visit, let us introduce our Imagine 2016 team.


The atmosphere of openness makes Imagine for me a pure flash of inspiration and long-awaited event. This year I will be happy to share our plans regarding aheadWorks Magento 2 solutions and discover new ideas and opportunities. I’m looking forward to meet old friends and new people. So, join us there.


Imagine is much more than another business conference. It’s rather a yearly family event to me, a chance to reconnect with old friends, meet new ones, and spend three days surrounded by thousands of people sharing the same passion – Magento.


Imagine 2016 is a great opportunity for me to meet other guys and companies from the Magento ecosystem, share experience and learn more about Magento 2. This year is going to be exciting for all community members and Imagine is an awesome chance to bring us together to improve the best Ecommerce solution.

Except the meetings welcomed in the Sponsor area in our booth, we also invite you to appoint one-on-one conversations with our CEO, Natallia Kukuruzina. You can schedule a meeting to discuss strategic partnership, sales cooperation or any other issues here.

These guys are seemingly the first to take their trip to Imagine 2016, and we wish them the best of luck.
