2007 Users’ Group Conference Location

I am delighted to announce the location for our next Users’ Group Association conference which will be held on April 22nd through 25th, 2007 at the Salt Lake City Marriott City Center, in Salt Lake City, Utah. After searching a variety of cities and a large number of hotel properties it became clear that this hotel offers our attendees the best environment to meet and network with their fellow Vista Users!

If you’ve never had the pleasure of visiting Salt Lake you will be pleasantly surprised by this destination that offers “ski in the morning and golf in the afternoon”! Yes, it really is possible even in April! For more information on the Salt Lake City area, visit the Salt Lake Visitors and Convention Bureau website. You will most definitely want to consider adding a day or two onto your travel itinerary to take the opportunity to discover more about this location.

We hope that you’ll be able to join us for our next conference and take advantage of the invaluable education and networking that takes place at this event. Year after year we hear from attendees that the conference event is the best training opportunity available!

Your UGA Steering Committee has already evaluated last year’s feedback and begun the planning process for next year’s agenda. If you have ideas or suggestions for content for the next event, please email me with your thoughts and suggestions. If you’re interested in participating in a conference session, which will entitle you to a conference registration discount, let me know as we are currently beginning the process of identifying session content.

More conference information will be published on the UGA website in the next few months. However, you can be confident that we will introduce sessions that will help you get the most from your software investment by using the many Vista tools. We’ll be sure to share details about the latest release in addition to including session content for earlier Vista versions.

If you are a new PDS customer, mark your calendar now as you don't want to miss this User Group event! If you are an experienced PDS customer, you too will greatly benefit from this event. Sessions will include presentations for both the 2.x and 3.x series to suit the variety of attendees. If you haven’t yet been able to justify upgrading to the latest version of Vista presentations will include tools to help you build your business case. Where else can you meet and collaborate with over a hundred Vista Users?

Conference registration and hotel rates and room block information have been posted on the website, so be sure to visit the UGA website again for more information. Use this link to access the website http://www.pdssoftware.com/uga.
