User Group Fully Booked

Please note that the following news item is an archived article. Therefore any links and information may now be out of date.

As you know, this year’s Annual User Group Conference which takes place on Tuesday 4th December is taking on a slightly different feel to previous years.  This year there will only be one event in the Centre of Birmingham, making travelling to it as simple as possible with direct links from roads, airports and rail lines.  This year will also see us hosting some of our partner companies who will be able to showcase their own products in the exhibition area just outside of the conference.

We are delighted that we have 5 companies exhibiting with us this year and we are also thrilled to say that with a week still to go we are in fact fully booked in terms of delegate numbers.

We are extremely excited about showing all of our delegates our New HoleBASE SI software, it will be the first time many of them get to see the product; but for some it will be an opportunity to see the fruits of their labour; as we have over 25 HoleBASE Beta Partners attending, so look out for the Green Badges everyone and you can ask people who have been actually using HoleBASE SI, what they think of it.

We looking forward to welcoming all of you who are registered next week, if for any reason you cannot now make the event, please let us know immediately by telephone on  01527 688888  or via email to, as we have a waiting list of people wishing to attend.
