We are excited to be gearing up for our Connections user conference on May 3-5 in Boston, MA. A lot of hard work has been put into the sold-out event, where VFA and Accruent solution users will meet to network and learn how to increase their facilities budgets.

Our agenda is being finalized to include product labs, in-depth breakout sessions and guest speakers such as keynote speaker John McGee, CTO at Viridity Energy and former IFMA Chair. He will be presenting “Putting the Bottom-Line into Sustainability,” which will include best practices on integrating your sustainability strategies with your organization’s capital planning and facilities management initiatives.

As energy management rises in importance for organizations’ facilities management, it is essential to learn about strategy in sustainability and how it affects your bottom line. McGee will offer insight into a recent study completed by the IFMA Global Sustainability Advisory Group as well as financial return opportunities from available energy management programs.

We are thrilled to have thought leaders like McGee join us as we work together to maximize the success of organizations’ real estate and facilities programs. Attendees will also have a chance to relax and enjoy the local offerings, including a chance to see the Green Monster at a Boston Red Sox baseball game at Fenway Park.

The next few weeks will be a whirlwind and Connections will be here before we know it! Although we’re at capacity for this event, we offer two other great opportunities for our customers to network with their peers: The User Forum, September 29-October 1, 2015 in Victoria, British Columbia AND Insights 2016, March 21-24, 2016 in Austin, Texas. Stay tuned for more information and open registration.
