Blog Post created by Lindsay Lamb on Dec 9, 2014

We have slowly been posting session descriptions for the topics that will be presented at our User Conference, and we have had several customers sign up for presentation slots as well!


A TON of great content is planned over the 2.5 days, so check out the list below and register today if you haven't already! (Topics may be moved to different days, but this is the plan at the moment! Click on the links to view session descriptions)


Ticket costs also include breakfast every day, lunch during the full days of the conference, snacks, an evening reception on Day 1, happy hours, and the sponsor exhibition.



All tickets for our User Conference are $399* through Wednesday, December 10th

*2014 User Conference Alumni will receive an additional $20 OFF, making your ticket price $379!

Use promo code ‘CYBERWEEK’ to get your $50-$70 savings!



Please also remember to use our room block rate.  If you book your room outside of our room block, prices are significantly higher (by almost $100)!
