Last week fusionSpan was at Community Brand‘s User Conference – Xperience18! Five days packed with lots of learning, sharing and connecting. Here are a few highlights!

fusionSpan was networking

fusionSpan was networking We had a booth. Community Brands has compiled quite a cornucopia of products, which in turn meant there was a unique range of organizations at the conference. From small non-profits searching for ways to get the most out of the tools they have, to large associations looking to expand the services they offer their members, we spoke with organizations in the exhibit hall about a range of challenges they were trying to address. With fusionSpan offering services related to Salesforce, netFORUM, and WordPress, we were ready to talk solutions!

fusionSpan was networking As with any good booth, we had giveaways! And not those pens that leak in your bag. We looked to, “grow new partnerships” with clients and vendors by giving out Forget-me-not seed packets – one in ever conference bag that was handed out. For those looking for a little sweetener, we also had our popular chocolate bars. Don’t worry, we hand carried them from DC to Florida to ensure there was no melting in transit!

fusionSpan was sharing

fusionSpan was sharing We had five presentations. One session looked at how to integrate your CRM tool with other systems without code. Another session focused on maximizing your ROI with Salesforce. fusionSpan even got to present as part of the ever-popular “10 Toolkit Tips you can do in 10 minutes” session focused on netFORUM Enterprise. With only 10 minutes we pulled out all the stops – there was learning, there were jokes, and there was even some juggling. Surely he can’t be serious? I am serious — and don’t call me Shirley.

fusionSpan was connecting

The user conference was also the first time we get to meet several clients in person. With all the great social events planned during the conference, there are lots of opportunities to get to know people beyond work. Granted, rarely do you get to connect with clients over a front row roller coaster ride at Universal Studios. Let’s just say it was a thrilling Xperience!

Say cheese!
