EBE TECHNOLOGIES TO HOST VIRTUAL USER CONFERENCE “eCONNECT 2009” NOVEMBER 10-11, 2009
Web Conference venue selected in consideration of customers’ economic constraints
East Moline, IL – EBE Technologies, the leading developer of enterprise business process management software for the transportation industry, announces its second annual user conference, eConnect 2009. In acknowledgment of the economy and constrained budgets carriers are experiencing, this year’s event will be a two day web conference scheduled to take place November 10th and 11th, 2009.
The conference will consist of multiple sessions focusing on EBE’s current and new product offerings, industry solutions, and case studies. With the virtual format, EBE is able to offer most of the same information and benefits of an on-site meeting without the airfare, hotel, and conference fees.
“EBE’s User Conference was a huge success last year and we didn’t want to lose the momentum we created with our first event. We knew 2009 would be a challenging year for many of our customers to spend the time and resources demanded by an on-site meeting. We didn’t want the economy to get in the way of our customers learning more about leveraging their software to make them more efficient as well as being introduced to our newest solutions. As a result, this virtual user conference will allow us to connect to our customers and provide them with the same valuable information as they experienced at last year’s event – without the time and travel expense. We’re confident our customers will appreciate our sensitivity to the economy and welcome this approach,” said Cindy Nelson, EBE’s VP of Marketing and Business Development.
To mirror an onsite venue as closely as possible, EBE will offer customers incentives such as show specials and give-aways for attending multiple sessions and early registration. As the economy turns, EBE expects to host its 2010 User Conference at an established, on-site venue once again.
