Fort Worth, TX

ECi Software Solutions (, a leader in industry-specific information technology solutions, today announced the dates of the Connect Conference 2013, the national users meeting for its software customers and strategic partners. The conference will be held September 24-26, 2013, at the Hyatt Regency Dallas in Dallas, Texas.

“The feedback from our last Connect national users’ conference in 2011 was phenomenal,” said Ron Books, President and CEO of ECi Software Solutions. “Connect Conference provides a chance for anyone who uses an ECi business solution to receive training on their software from our team of experts. They will also have access to our valued partners to learn about the ever-expanding technology to run their businesses more efficiently, grow revenue and increase profitability.”

Connect Conference 2013 will allow all ECi customers, business units, representative industries and preferred partners to come together again. The value participants receive from the conference extends beyond training. Everyone enjoys the chance to share ideas and best practices with other business leaders facing the same daily challenges.

“We are so excited about this upcoming conference for our customers,” said Traci Johnson, ECi’s SVP of Global Corporate Marketing. “New training sessions will be added, we’ll have our latest technology to reveal and we’ll have more value-adding vendors than ever before.

“And we’re really excited about the location,” Ms. Johnson added. “In 2011, we celebrated the cowboy heritage of Fort Worth. For 2013, we are moving the conference to Dallas to show our out-of-state customers how the Old West blends with high tech to create a very unique city. Connect also coincides with the opening of the State Fair of Texas on September 27, so our guests will be able to extend their stay through the weekend to attend one of the largest state fairs in the country. Everyone needs to have a fried Twinkie at least once in their lives. I think our guests will enjoy the culture and entertainment that Dallas has to offer.”

Registration for Connect Conference 2013 will begin after the first of the year. More information on the conference will be announced over the coming months. To learn more, go to
