Back Home from Summit, the Dynamics User Conference

What a whirlwind it was in Nashville for Summit 2017! We sent a total of 16 Encore team members this year to take part in training, networking with peers, and expanding their knowledge of Dynamics solutions. If you were there, you may have noticed Encore’s purple and pink colours around the conference, huge props to Tiffany for bearing the Encore flag!


Attendance stats are in and the value of this conference is evident when you look at the amount of Dynamics users, Partners, and ISVs who piled into the unique Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center. Well over six thousand attended, split up between Dynamics products as below:

  • AXUG Summit: 2100 attendees
  • CRMUG Summit: 1500 attendees
  • GPUG Summit: 2000 attendees
  • NAVUG Summit: 1000 attendees

Never a dull moment at Summit; Tracey and Tiffany from the Encore team got the opportunity to give back and volunteer for Rise Against Hunger, an international hunger relief organization.

The Encore Products team were troopers manning the Encore booth #347 in the expo hall, hopefully you got a chance to say ‘Howdy’ to Sam, David and Todd.

The products team spoke with conference attendees about Encore’s useful add-on products for Dynamics GP, and gave out the booth prize: a set of Beats by Dre headphones. Congratulations to Lonnie from WatchGuard for winning!

One of our very own #bestclientsever presented a great session on Dynamics 365/CRM user adoption called: “What Now? Leading Change for Acceptance & Adoption”.

Watch this Q&A with Diane earlier this year about the value she has found in attending Summit.
