Edupoint Anticipates Record-Breaking Attendance at 2016 Users Conference
Edupoint® Educational Systems, creator of the industry-leading Synergy® Education Platform for K-12 student information and learning management, is preparing for record attendance at its National Edupoint Users Conference, to be held November 3-4, 2016, at the Disneyland® Hotel in Anaheim, California. The company is on track to surpass 700 registrants, and is expecting an increase not only in the number of conference attendees, but also a significant rise in the number of districts participating, with more than 25% of registrants from districts participating for the first time.
This year’s conference agenda includes more than 80 breakout sessions divided into 12 tracks, enabling users to select sessions based on their role and level of experience with Synergy. The sessions cover the entire Synergy Education Platform in an informative instructional setting with real-world applications for all attendees and substantial opportunity for hands-on learning. One-to-one help is available throughout the conference at the Customer Support Open Forum, and optional hands-on training sessions are offered the day before the conference covering a variety of in-depth topics such as customization. The agenda also offers numerous opportunities for attendees to network and share knowledge with Synergy users in other districts.
Attendees at last year’s Users Conference in Anaheim represented all areas of K-12 – including administration, technology, and instruction – with job titles ranging from Secretary to Teacher and Assistant Superintendent of Instructional Services. 2015 National Users Conference participants called the event “practical,” “well-organized,” “special,” “personal,” and “responsive to the audience,” and reported that “the information was invaluable.” The Open Forum was especially popular, and considered by several attendees to be “the best part of the conference.”
“Our annual National Users Conference is the highlight of our year, and we look forward to connecting with all of our attendees from the very newest Synergy users to repeat participants from our longest-standing partner districts across the country,” says Bob Weathers, Founder & CEO of Edupoint. “We have many exciting new features to showcase, as well as a phenomenal conference agenda, and it’s our goal for every attendee to leave feeling informed, energized, and inspired.”
