Fort Worth, TX— ECi Software Solutions, a leader in cloud-based business management solutions, today announced that Daymond John, star of ABC’s Emmy Award-winning TV series Shark Tank, will keynote ECi Connect Conference 2018. The conference—which will draw almost 1,000 small to medium-sized business owners, technology and service providers, software users and IT professionals from around the globe—is now open for registration and will take place at the New Orleans Marriott in the historic French Quarter November 5-7.
In addition to his role on Shark Tank, John is widely recognized for his accomplishments as an entrepreneur and branding expert following the success of his groundbreaking lifestyle brand, FUBU®. He was named a Presidential Ambassador for Global Entrepreneurship under the Obama Administration and is a two-time New York Times Best Selling Author, most recently for his book Rise and Grind.

The 2018 conference follows an exciting year of growth for ECi, marked by the addition of five new products to the company’s software suite, including Macola®, MAX® and JobBOSS® in the manufacturing sector, MarkSystems® for residential homebuilders and developers, and PrintFleet® print management solutions for the global imaging industry. As such, attendees will be offered more than 180 breakout sessions geared towards varying levels of expertise (from beginner to advanced) on the technology, trends and insights that matter most in their industries. With access to dedicated experts and customer service representatives from each of ECi’s vertical focus areas, attendees will receive tailored tips for leveraging the full scope of their software solutions.
