The SmartSimple Annual Community Conference – Meet the Presenters

SmartSimple’s 4th Annual Community Conference in Toronto, Canada, is coming up fast, and we’re glad to see so many of our clients are making the trip to spend the day with us.

Getting There
Check out our last blog post for full information on how to get to the conference, places to stay and finding parking.

Our Annual Conference is a great opportunity for SmartSimple users to interact directly with our team. Not only will we share information on what’s coming for the rest of this year, this event is also a chance for us to hear directly from our clients.

“We learn so much at these conferences,” says Sarah Harris, Director, Client Support and Operations. “While we do host these events to share our expertise and knowledge about the future of SmartSimple, we also love hearing directly from our clients about changes in their industries, ideas for future upgrades and get feedback on how recent enhancements are working for them.”
