Toronto, Ontario — November 1, 2023: CMiC, a leading provider of next generation construction ERP, sets the stage to host CONNECT 2023, their annual innovation-focused, content-rich, and celebration-filled customer conference. With over 725 attendees registered for the event — which includes customers and partners — they are excited to deliver an unforgettable experience to mark their 25th anniversary at the Red Rock Resort in Las Vegas, NV.
CONNECT 2023 is expected to be the biggest to date. By design, it will offer attendees a wide variety of educational sessions, including four insightful keynotes; over 30 breakout sessions; including application launches and a series of customer success stories; and exclusive opportunities to meet with key subject matter experts at the CONNECT Campground.
With the aim to “delight and inspire,” this year’s guest speaker is none other than Blake Vogt. Labeled as the future of magic, Blake’s unique performances are both innovative and peppered with funny and inspiring stories — in fact, his close-up, sleight of hand magic is known to be one of the best in the world.
CMiC will also be inviting Ken Simonson, Chief Economist at AGC, to shed light on recent data in construction. Higher interest rates are squeezing out some projects, but manufacturing, renewable energy, and infrastructure seem to be on the cusp of a long growth spurt. Ken will dissect the latest indications and provide his fearless ’24-cast for the year ahead.’
According to Shirin Ali, Head of Marketing & CONNECT — CMiC, “When planning for CONNECT 2023, our silver jubilee, we knew that we had to elevate the experience in every possible way, from the sessions to the evening events, to everything in between. We have curated the program to cater to every one of our customers who will be in attendance.” She adds, “What makes this an even more memorable event is that the very first US-based CONNECT was also hosted in Las Vegas, which gave us an opportunity to add a nostalgic element to an otherwise future-focused experience.”
