GP User Events: Convergence 2014 vs. Summit 2014

If you want to get the most out of your Dynamics GP investment, will you be in Atlanta or St. Louis – or both? Convergence 2014 or GPUG Summit 2014?

They are both great events but very different – one is the night club and one is the coffee shop. Wonder which one is better for you? Read our post: Comparison Chart: GPUG Summit Event vs Microsoft Convergence for Dynamics GP Users

If you are heading to either, please let us know so we can let you know about special CAL events planned! Email
