At Encore we’re already excitedly planning for the upcoming Summit conference in Nashville at the Gaylord Opryland Resort from October 10th to the 13th. If you’re not familiar with Summit, it’s now the absolute must-attend event for Microsoft Dynamics users. With Convergence a distant memory and Envision now connected with Ignite, Summit has risen to the top as the place to be for Dynamics users.
In terms of continual learning, remember Einstein said; “Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death.” Expanding your current knowledge with the numerous training opportunities available alone makes it worth the out-of-town trip. Couple that with growing your network of professionals and fellow Dynamics users and you have an investment that should not be missed.
Whether there is value in attending Summit or not is a no-brainer for Dynamics users, if anything the issue is scheduling time at the conference to take advantage of all there is to offer. For some perspective on how much goes on at Summit, last year the conference saw 6,500 in attendance; a 63% growth from 2015’s Summit conference. Almost 800 breakout sessions in all were available, with something there for every attendee. Have a look at the 2016 schedules for GP, NAV, CRM and AX for an idea of the scope of learnings on offer. Many businesses send several employees to the conference just to ensure they can take in the maximum amount of valuable education.
Early bird registration ends on June 29 so register soon if you are planning to attend. The cost is $1,099 for Dynamics Community members, then prices go up in increments in September and October. For non-members, the cost right now is $1,499, but if you bundle a yearly membership with Dynamics Communities you will save $400. It pays to join in and act quickly!
FYI – Newly formed user groups in the Dynamics Community are PBIUG for Power BI users and D365UG; combined with AXUG for users of Dynamics 365 for Operations and with CRMUG for Dynamics 365 for Sales, Marketing and Customer Service.
