This year’s theme is “Past, Present and Future,” highlighting the company’s new direction since the strategic acquisitions of Docucorp International, Whitehill Technologies and Integrated Insurance Technologies (IIT). Odyssey 2008 will combine the best elements of Docucorp’s annual Docugroup meeting, the Whitehill Connections user group, and IIT GA User Group meeting.

Odyssey 2008 will bring customers together for three and a half days of educational sessions, with more than 70 breakout and panel presentations on the agenda.

Conference events include round table discussions, a demo room, a golf outing and plenty of entertainment. Social events will have a futuristic motif in keeping with the conference theme and will include a visit to The Palladium, providing the best in Texas hospitality.
