ECi Connect Conference 2014 Moves to Las Vegas
The Mirage Hotel to Host Next Year’s Conference and Build on Successes from Connect Conference 2013
Fort Worth, TX — Thursday, October 24, 2013: ECi Software Solutions (www.ECiSolutions.com), a leader in industry-specific information technology solutions, today announced that its Connect Conference 2014 will be held at The Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas from November 10–12, 2014. Following an extremely successful Connect Conference 2013, ECi is looking forward to presenting another exciting event at another spectacular venue. The 2013 conference was held at the Hyatt Regency Dallas, September 24–26, where participants from eight countries representing all of the industries served by the ECi family of companies came together under the theme of “educate, collaborate and inspire.”
“This was the first conference I’ve attended since 2008,” said Janet Elman, General Manager of Business Environments, LLC, a user of ECi’s TeamDesign® software. “The structure of the classes was perfect! The instructors kept everyone involved in what was being discussed. The connections that are made at these conferences, as you know, are important to help us continue to grow and change our businesses. I look forward to the next conference!”
The conference had many highlights including a memorable speech by “The Oldest Rookie,” former Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver and star of the Disney® movie Invincible, Vince Papale. Attendees also enjoyed a night of Texas-style dining and dancing at Eddie Deen’s Ranch.
“Connect is a unique event exclusive to our customers,” said Traci Johnson, SVP of Global Corporate Marketing. “Our customers represent small and medium size businesses who share common challenges in today’s changing markets. Not only do they get to network with others in their industry, but they also get to meet folks from other industries, providing a unique chance to learn from many sources and gain new prospects and ultimately new customers. As Janet said, it’s the connections made that are so important. Connect 2014 will provide our customers with another opportunity to make valuable connections, and moving to a new venue like Las Vegas will only serve to enhance the experience.”
“Everyone enjoys this event—our customers, vendors and employees,” added Ron Books, President and CEO of ECi. “It’s exciting to see small and medium size businesses that are growing and making an investment in learning new things. This conference is more than just software training. The opportunity for networking and learning from each other is a major part of Connect’s appeal. Connect reminds us here at ECi that we are here to support the entrepreneurial spirit and profitable growth of independent businesses. It is exciting to see our mission in action at an event like Connect. We will continue to follow through on that mission at Connect 2014!”
