London – 12 September 2013 – The UK & Ireland SAP User Group, an independent voice that represents the SAP user community, is holding its annual conference at the ICC Birmingham, between 24th and 26th November 2013. The conference and exhibition brings together hundreds of SAP professionals and business users from across the UK & Ireland to share their experiences and best practice every year.
The theme of the conference this year is “Tomorrow’s World”, focusing on the impact mobility, social media, and other new technologies will have on organisations. This year’s conference begins on Sunday 24th November with a full programme of interactive workshops, where delegates will be able to exchange experiences and pose questions to SAP and industry experts on a variety of IT topics. This will be followed by a networking reception, with further opportunities for delegates to meet the exhibitors and their industry peers. Keynote speakers will include User Group chairman, Philip Adams, SAP Co-CEO Jim Hagemann Snabe and motivational speaker Mandy Hickson.
There will be in excess of 70 breakout sessions on offer, covering areas including HANA, cloud, mobility, supply chain management and application lifecycle management. For the first time there will be dedicated ‘Lost Knowledge’ and ‘Tips and Tricks’ sessions, to help users maximise the SAP investments. In addition there will be a Senior Executive Forum for CIOs to discuss their latest strategic challenges with senior executives from SAP.
“Industries across the board are seeing exponential levels of change, being driven by factors such as mobility, social media and Big Data. With no SapphireNow event taking place in Europe this year, the 2013 SAP User Conference will be the definitive place for UK users to get the latest product information and insight. We are also delighted to be welcoming Jim Hagemann Snabe back as a keynote speaker. Combining all this with the all the networking opportunities available to delegates, this year’s conference shouldn’t be missed,” commented Craig Dale, CEO, UK & Ireland SAP User Group.
The conference is open to all SAP customers with discounted rates for member organisations. For more information go to: http://www.sapusers.org/conference/
