This year marks the 30th anniversary of the annual Tribute User's Group Conference. Originally called TSUG for Tribute System User's Group, the organization was merged with TruNet (the TrulinX Users Group) in 2012 after several years of co-locating both meetings.
TribNet brings together users of the Tribute Software System and TrulinX for two and a half days of training sessions and networking in Cleveland. The conference is a great opportunity to brush up on the software, learn new ways of dealing with business concerns, check out third party applications, and network with others in the industry.
The conference will be held in Cleveland June 24th - 26th at the Renaissance Hotel in Public Square. This sophisticated downtown Cleveland hotel is located on Public Square and is connected to Tower City Center's exclusive boutiques, restaurants and cinema along with the new Horseshoe Casino.
Within walking distance to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Great Lakes Science Center, and many other shops and restaurants, the iconic hotel was built in 1918 and its architecture reflects Cleveland's unique style and rich history.
Emily Thompson, president of TribNet, lists the benefits of attending TribNet:
Networking: Meeting people that use the same system that you do, and finding ways to improve processes and procedures within your company, has been one of the most beneficial things about attending TribNet for my company. Learning how others use a module and comparing that with how our company uses it, then refining those procedures, allows us to use your software to its fullest potential. Also, learning about features we do not currently use is beneficial.
Relationships: Building relationships with other companies is advantageous. It's great to have someone to call and bounce something off of them with regard to how your software works or how their company might attack a partial task. This has been one of the most positive rewards of attending TribNet.
Guest speakers include Jack Keough, contributing editor of Industrial Distribution Magazine and Diane Helbig, Seize This Day Coaching, speaking on The Power of Email Marketing: Simple Strategies for Success.
Representatives from Dixon Valve and Parker Hannifin will be attending as well as Tribute's preferred solution providers: 3Delta Systems, Enlighten.Net, Harland Technology Services, MITS, Tour de Force CRM, Rubber Tree Systems, and WarehouseTWO.
