From Honky Tonks to Funky Tonk – GPUG Summit Nashville Recap

Oct 30, 2017

We knew we were in for a wild ride at GPUG Summit 2017 and our week in Nashville did not disappoint!  As we work to catch our breath from the whirlwind, I always enjoy reflecting on the highlights and lasting impressions from the conference.


I left the Gaylord Opryland Convention Center feeling inspired, as per usual. Here’s why.


Rockton has been sponsoring this annual event since its inception, 11 conferences ago, and by now you’d think we would have seen everyone and everything. But no! This was my third Dynamic Communities User Group Summit and the best part still remains all the new faces in the crowd. New GP users and first time Summit attendees flooded the expo hall and packed the breakout sessions. It’s their energy and willingness to learn that invigorates our team, who is dedicated to finding new ways to make their work simpler & easier®.


Technical Sales Team Lead, Alicia Weigel, presented two partner showcases to a couple of captive audiences. The session attendees were engaged, throwing out more questions than I’d ever seen before. WE LOVE QUESTIONS! These questions resulted in a lot of “Ah-Ha” moments as users realized that products do indeed exist to solve their specific problems. The questions also provided insight into user needs within Dynamics GP, which will fuel our product road maps for future Rockton development.


No GPUG Summit is complete without a party and this year things got real funky… Funky Tonk that is! Together with our friends at Greenshades, Integrity Data, Jet Reports, Nodus Technologies, and PowerGP Online, we threw a party for the ages. The Nashville setting called for a blowout, and that’s exactly what we did, dancing the night away with a live band and over 600 of our closest UG Summit friends. What a great community we are a part of!


Needless to say, we’re looking forward to Summit 2018 in Phoenix, and we hope you are too!
