20 Aug 2014 7:42 AM We’re only weeks away from GPUG Summit 2014 and we look forward to seeing the Dynamics GP community in St. Louis, MO! Before you finalize your travel plans for the event, be sure to consider these additional activities….you might just want to arrive in St. Louis a little early! Pre-Conference Training | Mon and Tues (Oct 13-14)If you’ve not already done so, I’d urge you to take a look at the training courses being offered by GPUG Academy before GPUG Summit officially kicks off. These courses are hands-on classes that not only teach you Dynamics GP skills…but also allow you to practice your newly learned skills during the class. There are courses on administration, BI, development, finance, HR/PR, and even some non-Dynamics GP topics like Excel and SharePoint. Take a look at the classes here: http://gpugsummit.com/pre-conference-training/. If you have any questions about training, reach out to our fearless Academy Director Rich Beliveau - he’ll be happy to assist! Rams vs. 49ers | Mon (Oct 13)This has nothing to do with GPUG Summit…but it's a happy coincidence if you’re an NFL fan! The St. Louis Rams will be hosting the San Francisco 49ers in a Monday Night Football match-up on October 13. The Edward Jones Dome is connected to the America’s Center (where Summit will take place) and is an easy walk from our host hotels. The Rams organization has offered a special $15 discount on tickets for Summit attendees. Click here for details on securing discounted tickets to the game. Come early for GPUG Academy training and take in a football game – feed your brain and your sports-loving soul! The Partner Connections Event | Mon and Tues (Oct 13-14)Attention Partners: this event is just for you! Our sister group – Dynamic Partner Connections – is teaming up with The Partner Channel to host #TPCE14 in St. Louis just before GPUG Summit. Check it out and sign up (for only $199!) at http://www.thepartnerconnectionsevent.com.Hope to see you in St. Louis this October!
