User Conference Overview

The Forecast Pro User Conference empowers you to get the most out of Forecast Pro by meeting with and learning from fellow users, forecasting experts and the Forecast Pro team. This content-rich event is designed to help you to improve your forecasting by focusing on “real life” business scenarios and offering practical solutions that you can implement in your own organization.

We’ve purposely structured the conference to be an intimate event so that you can make valuable connections with other Forecast Pro users to share your knowledge and ideas. This is your opportunity to understand how other forecasters use the software, to discover how they’ve solved problems similar to those that you face and to compare notes on forecasting practices.

The conference is jam-packed with a variety of session types—including Forecast Pro demonstrations, hands-on workshops, user case studies, tutorials, panels and networking events—all of which are designed to help you get the most out of Forecast Pro and strengthen your forecasting process.
