We’ve made it past the start of 2021, and as we head into March, that means conferences are starting back up. While we expect most of them to be virtual events this year, that doesn’t mean there isn’t significant value you can gain from them. The first conference on the schedule for 2021 is DynamicsCon, March 16-18.

DynamicsCon is organized by the Dynamics User Group (DUG) and is free to all attendees. This event first occurred last fall, and the reviews and reactions were stellar. The significant focus areas are Business Central, Dynamics GP, Customer Engagement, Finance & Operations, and Power Platform. There are over 100 sessions planned across these product tracks.  

You can sign up for the conference by going to Registration is 100% free. Once you are registered, go to the agenda section and select the presentations you want to attend. Be sure to plan on attending Innovia’s session “Enhancing ERP Success: A Strategic Approach to Training/Engagement” at 3 pm ET on 3/16.

There will be a virtual exhibition hall and virtual meeting rooms for conversations with ISVs and your partner. It’s a great time to look at ISV solutions you may be interested in and having one-on-one talks with your Innovia Customer Engagement Specialist. As we have at previous virtual events, Innovia will host a virtual scavenger hunt and have an open Teams meeting where you can drop in and say hello.
