EtQ Wraps Up Another Successful User Conference

FARMINGDALE, NY (11-10-08): EtQ's 12th Annual User Conference proved to be yet another successful event for EtQ, with an unprecedented turn out and staple networking opportunities.

The 3-day conference brought in the highest attendance of any EtQ User Conference to date and was designed as a venue for customers and prospective customers to get together and showcase their innovations, attend workshops, learn about new products and features, and have one-on-one consultant interactions. Due to last year's success, EtQ's Reliance Passport was offered again this year, with a basic track to cover basic configurations using the design and Enterprise Configuration Center (ECC), and a newly added advanced track for those experienced in the basics of Reliance configuration but wanting to build on their knowledge.

Held at The Resort at Squaw Creek in Lake Tahoe, CA, the event was not all work and included activities such as advanced biking, kayaking, fly-fishing, hiking, and golfing. However, activities weren't only outdoors. Customers also got involved in "Wii-lympics, a Battle of the Bands", and EtQ's own American Idol contests, with various prizes given out to the winners.

"This year's User Conference was a spectacular turnout," stated Glenn McCarty, Chief Executive Officer of EtQ. "The best that we've had so far. Each year it's a pleasure to watch our conference grow and to see our customers come out and show us how they've been able to implement our software in innovative ways and we get the opportunity to keep them updated on EtQ's software and services. It's also a great way to kick back and enjoy all that Lake Tahoe has to offer. We get the best of both worlds at our conferences each year, and we look forward to yet another outstanding event."

EtQ thanks its customers for joining us in another rewarding conference and for the opportunity to learn from each other all that EtQ's best-in-class total quality management solution has to offer.
