The Altico-Sikich Fall Festival was both entertaining & educational for our Microsoft Dynamics & NetSuite clients.
Marlborough, MA (PRWEB) November 20, 2015
The gala Fall Festival was held on Tuesday, October 27th, a full-day client event with the theme “Invest in the Future.” Convened at the Sheraton Framingham Hotel & Conference Center, there was live music performed by the Sikich East “house band,” Mixed Mode Authentication. They set the tone for a day filled with education and entertainment.
There were 16 breakout sessions throughout the day on topics relevant to our Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft Dynamics CRM and NetSuite guests. Plus an Expo Center where 27 sponsors displayed products and services geared toward enhancing everyone’s technology solutions.
Mike Kean, Partner, stated: “On behalf of the entire team at the Sikich East office in Marlborough, MA, I want to thank all of the Fall Festival sponsors for their participation in and support of our event. They were an integral part of the Festival ‘ecosystem,’ and contributed to the learning experience.”
