Acumatica is the fastest-growing cloud ERP 6 years in a row and is loved by users and industry analysts. Built as a cloud-native application, it was launched in 2008 and offers financial management, distribution, manufacturing, construction, payroll, WMS, mobile, customer management, project accounting, and other modular functionality with specialized editions for small and mid-sized companies in many industries.
The annual Acumatica Summit is the seminal event for customers, partners, and industry analysts in the Acumatica ecosystem. It is packed with motivating keynote presentations, engaging networking opportunities, and a broad array of informative sessions including product news, demos, and roadmaps.
The 2023 Acumatica Summit will take place January 29th to February 3rd at Wynn, the stunning five-star modern luxury resort in the heart of Las Vegas!
The six-day event is divided into two parts: Summit and Training. However, you don’t need to spend a week to gain the benefits. Many people attend for as little as 48 hours and see tremendous value.
The Summit portion lasts from Sunday through Tuesday and includes presentations, a trade show, networking events and various information sessions about the current product and future roadmap. The Training portion is optional, lasts Wednesday through Friday, and provides detailed training on all subject matter related to the product.
Why attend Acumatica Summit 2023
With Wynn Las Vegas hosting Acumatica Summit 2023 again this year, Acumatica will continue with sustainability efforts to make the environmental footprint of the summit experience “Zero-Waste”. With combined efforts from both Wynn Las Vegas and Acumatica, the previous Acumatica Summit 2022 diverted 98% of event waste from the landfill within the operational control.
This event is great for prospects, customers, and partners. Acumatica has identified the following themes for the Summit this year.
- Collaborate – share new ideas, past successes, and business best practices
- Innovate – learn about exciting new high-productivity features, industry-leading mobile apps, multi-cloud integrations, and more
- Accelerate – increase your knowledge, your effectiveness, and your business growth
