The yearly event provides a key opportunity for clients from around the globe (and I mean around the globe – we had clients attend from Australia, Norway, UK, Cayman Islands, Middle East and more) to network and share best practices.

To accommodate our diverse audience, we offered training sessions for beginner, intermediate and advanced users.

We even had prospective clients attend the conference, so there really was something for everyone!

Our President and CEO, Mark Jaine, gave an inspired opening keynote … Read more...
