The first of September 2023 was special for us at Raidboxes : our first Partner Day took place! With networking, inspiring talks and Q&A sessions, there was a mix that made the day successful. In this post you can now read our personal review of this day.
The Partner Day schedule
About 80 participants from the whole DACH region found their way to Münster. Additionally, Raidboxers from all eight districts were represented. This day was not only about pure business relations, but also about strengthening ties to our partners, sharing knowledge and building networks among each other.
Our check-in then began at noon. Meanwhile, there was already the possibility to exchange the first experiences with cold drinks and appetizers. The magician Stephan Lammen from Münster provided magic moments as a walking act and enchanted his audience from the beginning. He lightened the mood and facilitated the start of the conversation.
The agenda for the day was filled with exciting program items. So everyone had the opportunity to get their money's worth. From exclusive insights into Raidboxes to Q&A sessions with our partners and experts, there was plenty of variety and exciting discussions. Here is a short overview of the topics discussed:
- "Raidboxes 2.0: The future of our Managed WordPress Hosting - Discover the collective power of team.blue!" - Torben Simon Meier and Johannes Benz
- "The new infrastructure: flexible options for your website projects of today and tomorrow!" Thomas Goik
- "Dashboard Rebuild: The Future of User Experience - Introduction, Updates and Exclusive Outlook!" René Bähr and Jeffrey Eul
Exclusive insights into Raidboxes
After the welcome by our Sales Lead Marcel, our Partner Manager Lisa led through the different program points of the day. This included a first insight into the future of Raidboxes and an explanation of the cooperation with team.blue. In addition, our Managing Directors Torben and Johannes went into successes and failures and elaborated on the founding history of Raidboxes.
In keeping with the theme of looking to the future, there were then two presentations from the technical department of our company. Our CTO Thomas gave a presentation on the changes in the technical infrastructure. Afterwards, Jeffrey and René from our technical department gave an exclusive insight into the new Dashboard and its future diverse possibilities and user-friendliness.
Q&A Sessions with Raidboxes & Partners
After the technical presentations from our team, the Question & Answer sessions started after a refreshment break. The first session gave deep insights into our vision, how working with us as a remote first company works and how Raidboxes will develop in the next years. Our General Circle answered all the questions our partners had.
We also had the honor of welcoming a number of participants from our partner companies as a panel during the Q&A Talks.
The following people were available to answer questions:
Katja Beer - Head of Business Unit Website & Listings at 11880
Daniel Bruckhaus - Managing Director of optimerch
Nico Günzel - Agency management of fuxteufelsweb
Julian Post - Technical SEO Consultant at Contunda
There were exciting insights and experiences in the work processes of the partners. On top of that, they shared their perspective on topics like useful WordPress plugins, experiences with WordPress page builders and website maintenance.
Both rounds of questions opened the space for interactive discussions. After a hesitant start, more and more questions came from the audience.
Due to the numerous questions afterwards, not every one could be answered immediately. After the sessions, however, there was the possibility of further deepening in the Deep Dives.
Our Deep Dive area was the ideal place to exchange ideas directly. Colleagues from support and engineering were available in this room. There was the possibility to ask all questions and to get rid of comments to the new Dashboard and its functions.
Parallel to this, there was once again the opportunity to network in the lobby and in the outdoor area. There, everyone had the opportunity to get rid of any remaining questions in a personal conversation. It was also possible to talk shop and exchange tips on automation in the agency business.
Dinner, Networking and After Party
An exciting day with many interesting conversations and new insights progressed. After a delicious dinner from the buffet, the after party started. There, the dance floor could be shaken to the beats of DJ Marc Hälker.
It was not only between Raidboxes and partners that connections were made at this time. There was also a lively exchange between the participants. Successes and failures were shared and visions for the future were discussed.

A Closing Word on Partner Day
The Partner Day was also something very special for me as one of the new employees at Raidboxes . I was able to have interesting conversations and network. On top of that, I met really exciting people and was able to experience live what we work hard for every day. Of course, such an event is also particularly good for the team spirit. I'm sure that everyone else took away a lot of energy just like me.
The Raidboxes Partner Day was a complete success for us. Thanks to our team who gave everything to make this day a complete success and to all our partners for the open and very productive exchange. This also allowed us to successfully incorporate feedback on our new Partner Program , which will go live soon!
After the first Partner Day is before the next event. We are looking forward to meeting you live at WordCamp Gerolstein on October 20-21, 2023.
