Continuing the Charge ... 2017 User Conference Wrap

by Vrakas Blum

 

Vrakas/Blum Computer Consulting, Inc. (VBCC), hosted its annual User Conference on October 25, 2017. The event was nothing short of a giant success. Highlighting the theme, Charge Up Your Accounting Software, we were able to draw in a record number of attendees and sponsors alike. There were plenty of topics to keep our clients up-to-date on their Sage Software and ample time to browse the Sponsor Marketplace for ways to continue to charge up their Sage Software. We highly suggest you save the date for next year’s bigger and better User Conference.

Check out what our clients thought about this year’s conference:

“Lots of information for me to use and/or pass on to employees. Good Food!”

“(We received) a lot of new knowledge, and the sponsors were open and honest.”

“The conference is incredible! We are proud to be here again for the second year. We are very excited about the turn out that you have. You have great customers, great prospects. We are looking forward to a wonderful year with Vrakas/Blum.” – Rob Larsh, Sage
