EtQ's 16th Annual User Conference Results in Unprecedented Turnout

FARMINGDALE, NY (10-15-12): EtQ's 16th Annual User Conference proved to be yet another successful event for EtQ, with an unprecedented turnout and EtQ's staple networking opportunities.

The 3-day conference brought in the highest attendance of any EtQ User Conference to date, resulting in a 20 percent increase over the previous year.

Held at the Resort at Squaw Creek in Lake Tahoe, CA, the event was designed as a venue for customers to showcase their innovations, learn about new products and features, and network with their peers. All sessions focused on innovation and increased customer interaction. EtQ kicked off this year's conference with a keynote presentation that unveiled Reliance 10. As it does each year, the conference highlighted innovative customer applications with EtQ's Innovation Excellence Awards.

The conference also included interactive one-on-one sessions, which provided input from various customers across all areas and industries. Following the conference, was EtQ's Reliance Passport, which was EtQ's largest workshop to date. The Passport provided EtQ users with valuable training and knowledge on how best to maximize their investment in EtQ's products and services.

"This year's conference was not only EtQ's largest, it was also the most successful," stated Glenn McCarty, chief executive officer at EtQ. Many customers plan their year around this event, and not only do they use this time to connect with EtQ, they also schedule their own internal training activities around this event.  This is one of the reasons why EtQ continues to provide a strong conference program. The conference continues to gain a larger following, year by year, and we look forward to what 2013 brings and to seeing many familiar and new faces."
