There is always excitement around the Discovery Conferences ... But this year, the presentations dug a little deeper to help attendees understand not only how their organizations could overcome the challenges they were facing but also thrive in the midst of them.

The 2017 NiUG Discovery Conference was held at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, VA; the 2017 NiUG Canada Discovery Conference was held at the Omni King Edward Hotel in Toronto, ON. Both events included iMIS users, solution providers, consultants and vendors who participated in educational sessions, training classes, demonstrations, exhibitor showcases, and networking events.
At the 12th annual US event in Arlington, attendees were invited to a welcome reception on Monday, October 2, sponsored by ASI and 24 iMIS partners.
Both events focused on connecting iMIS users with solutions; the conferences offered a full schedule of presentations on the newest/enhanced features of the iMIS 20 Engagement Management System (EMS)™, including process automation, data security, dashboards, and email/communications, as well as emerging technology trends.
“It is our organization’s goal to connect iMIS users with solutions and I’m proud to say we continue to do just that,” said Michele Morgan, NiUG’s Executive Director. “There is always excitement around the Discovery Conferences– our attendees look forward to the presentations from their peers and iMIS solution providers, as well as the networking opportunities. But this year, the presentations dug a little deeper to help attendees understand not only how their organizations could overcome the challenges they were facing but also thrive in the midst of them.”
