FPX (FPX.com), the innovator, pioneer and market leader of Configure-Price-Quote® (CPQ) applications, announced today that it will host an exclusive two-day conference and celebration called “THIRTY” in Minneapolis on October 16th and 17th.
FPX, which was founded in 1983, is hosting the event to commemorate 30 years since its founders invented the first Sales Force Automation (SFA) system and developed the category of business technology now known at Configure-Price-Quote (CPQ).
“THIRTY is first and foremost a chance to thank our customers and acknowledge how they have improved their business performance through FPX applications,” said Dave Batt, CEO of FPX. “While FPX has had substantial customer acquisition success recently and is in a strong growth mode, no other company in the enterprise application marketplace can claim that they have had loyal customers for decades. So as we commemorate 30 years in business, we are also recognizing and celebrating the success of our long-term customers.”

1. Expert keynote speakers including:
