GPUC 2017

Microsoft Campus, Executive Briefing Center
Fargo, North Dakota  •  November 15-17, 2017

Great Plains User Conference (GPUC) is Implementation Specialists’ premier customer event of the year, with targeted Microsoft Dynamics GP training sessions, hands-on learning, structured networking opportunities, and much more.


Why Attend?

One of the goals of GPUC is for attendees to gain practical knowledge that can immediately be applied to your daily tasks. GPUC offers numerous breakout sessions to learn how to use Dynamics GP more effectively and to discover new tips and tricks. The hands-on labs allow you to experience first-hand, the current and newest functionality in GP.  Attendees can take advantage of networking opportunities with Implementation Specialists’ staff, GPUC sponsors, and people like you! Did we mention you will also be able to earn CPE credits at GPUC too?!

GPUC is also a great opportunity to see what complementary products and services our sponsors have to offer. You will have various ways to interact with sponsors and they will help those of you who are seeking to expand, or improve your Dynamics GP solutions. Feel free to connect with sponsors between sessions, on breaks, or during meals.

We would love for you to participate at GPUC 2017!
