2014 BEIMS International User Group Conference

Updated 30/05/2014

We'd like to thank all our wonderful clients for attending the 2014 BEIMS International User Group Conference in Melbourne from 19-23 May. Dozens of attendees came from all over Australia and New Zealand to participate in training sessions, workshops, an International User Group Meeting AND our wonderful social events, including dinner at Eureka89 which featured spectacular sweeping views of Melbourne, combined with amazing food! 

We can also announce that the next BEIMS International User Group Conference meeting will be held in 2017. We hope to re-vamp the training schedule to appeal to as many BEIMS clients as possible. Planning for 2017 will begin soon, so keep an eye out for announcements in the future.

Here's what Sally from the Auckland University of Technology had to say about her time at IUGC:

"It was first class from start to finish. The venue was fantastic - I have never been to Melbourne before but will definitely be back. I found the workshops very informative, I didn't know half of what BEIMS is capable of so am looking forward to implementing it all (at) work. The after hours drinks and dinners were stunning and great for networking. Finally last, but by no means least the BEIMS staff were incredibly welcoming, warm, helpful, knowledgeable and astute. Great ambassadors each and every one."
