We’re excited to share with you some new plans for our ANCILE Products Users Group (APUG) events this year. We’re shaking things up a bit by focusing on bringing you more events – and events that span the globe.
Here’s a quick summary of what you can expect by region.
As we’ve done in recent years, we’ll be bringing APUG to a variety of locations in the Asia Pacific region. Right now, we are planning to start these in June. Stay tuned for further details on locations and dates.
We are currently looking into potential events in South Africa and Middle East North Africa (MENA), as well as planning for one or two 1-day events in the Germany, Austria, Switzerland (DACH) region. Late April is the likely time for these events to kick off. More details to come soon.
We’re changing up our APUG events in North America this year and bringing the events to you. We will be hosting two types of APUG events this year in the United States. Our goals are similar for both – to provide you with learning and collaboration opportunities – but formats will be a bit different. Here’s the scoop:
- Adoption Unlocked + APUG. We are planning three events in major cities across the US. These 1-day events will be a combination of our inaugural Adoption Unlocked conference in the morning and APUG sessions in the afternoon. Adoption Unlocked is where we’ll be gathering customers, partners, and industry thought leaders to address a topic relevant to us all: how to help teams adopt and master new or changed software applications. In the afternoon, we’ll share customer experiences and ANCILE product updates. You’ll be able to register for the entire day or just the APUG portion. First up: Atlanta on June 21. We’ll be sharing more details on the Atlanta event – and opening registration – in the near future. In the early fall, we will be visiting Chicago and San Francisco.
- APUG Networking Events. These events are a few hours in length and will emphasize networking with ANCILE customers near you, as well as delivering short sessions about trends in learning and capabilities in ANCILE products. Recent examples of these are the events we held in early March in Dallas and Houston. We’d love to host more of these in YOUR city. If you are willing to host an event, we’ll do the rest – advertising, registration, catering, and lining up customers to speak. Contact us if you’re interested in hosting.
There is no registration cost for our Adoption Unlocked and APUG events.
At every APUG event we host in 2016 you can expect: customer presentations, an update on the latest ANCILE uPerform release, insight into what’s coming next for ANCILE products, networking opportunities, and the opportunity to raise questions to the ANCILE team.
In addition, throughout the year you’ll see additional synchronous and asynchronous ways to learn more, practice, and take deeper dives into ANCILE uPerform functionality. This includes live and pre-recorded sessions in our Learning Series, tips and tricks on the Larry Blog, and our free uPerform authoring course. Plus, you can also take advantage of the discussion forums on the Intelligence Hub and in our LinkedIn groups.
In summary, we’re looking to give you more opportunities – with less travel and time commitment – to interact face-to-face with your peers and ANCILE. Plus, we’ll be supplementing this in-person networking with a variety of options to help you get the most out of our products.
