TraceGains 2015 Customer ConferenceCelebrating innovation, collaboration, and customer success

2015 TraceGains Customer Conference and Training_Logo

The 2015 TraceGains Customer Conference & Training was a great success! This years event featured customized learning tracks, peer presentations from customers, industry experts, and TraceGains functional leaders, as well as plenty of networking opportunities. 

TraceGains customer attendees were immersed in education not only about using TraceGains, but also about best practices and ways to improve their business through automation. Networking opportunities were woven throughout the program, with a special awards and networking dinner occurring on March 5 to further extend and enrich these conversations.

Take a look at a few of our conference pictures to get a small glimpse into the week's festivities!
