It’s the start of another year.   I always like the beginning of the year because there is so much to do and look forward to.  One of the highlights of the year is our customer conference.  The Innovia customer conference is one of the largest user conferences in the US for NAV/BC.  This year the conference will be May 20th and 21st and will be at the Morris Inn on the Campus of Notre Dame.   If you haven’t been to our customer conference before I highly recommend you attend.

As in years past, there will be a large number of Innovia staff attending.  People you talk with on the phone but maybe have never met.  This is a great opportunity to meet them face to face and catch up over snacks and cocktails or attend one of the many sessions our staff puts on.  We also have 22 ISV’s attending the conference.   Each will have a booth with their expert staff and will also be doing a session to show their product offerings and answer your questions.

Customers in the past have raved about the quality of the sessions and information provided during this conference.  In 2019 we had 93 customers attend.  In 2020 we are expecting 125 or more customers.  With that many users in one place, you can’t help but take home some tips and tricks that will help your users.

We would like to see all our customers send staff to this event.  As an added bonus, Innovia will pay for the rooms of all attendees who register by Feb. 28. You can go to the homepage of for more information and to register.  Feel free to contact your account manager with any questions. 

Come join the fun in May.  We look forward to seeing you there!

Best Regards,

Alan Wyne, CEO
