There are no substitutes for face time and networking, and SalesPad, LLC, is bringing together SalesPad, Microsoft® Dynamics GP, and Intuit® QuickBooks® users and partners for three days in mid-September for PANELS 2015.
PANELS ’15 is SalesPad’s user-partner conference, which runs September 14 to 16 at The Harris Building in downtown Grand Rapids.
More than 300 participants are expected in Grand Rapids to gain user education on the best practices and new approaches on SalesPad, Intuit QuickBooks and Microsoft Dynamics GP business software. In addition, they are getting a first look at 7thStage, SalesPad’s new cloud-based enterprise-resource planning (ERP) product.
The list of keynote speakers and special presenters for PANELS '15 includes:
■ Legendary Michigan State University Men's Basketball Coach Tom Izzo
■ Intuit Senior Developer Evangelist David Leary
■ New Holland Brewing Co. Vice President of Brand and Lifestyle Fred Bueltmann, The Beervangelist

PANELS ’15 participants will connect and share with the SalesPad community, which includes users, accounting professionals, small business owners, entrepreneurs, developers, value-added partners and resellers, ProAdvisors, thought leaders, and vendors. They will gain takeaways for increasing sales, expanding implementations, and improving brand marketing. They will get face time with SalesPad technical, sales, custom, and marketing support.
The PANELS ’15 theme is Go Beyond. The conference’s backdrop celebrates Grand Rapids’ creativity, entrepreneurship, artistic and design approaches, and collaborative spirit and embraces its Beer City USA status just a week before the start of ArtPrize 2015.
