Thank you for your interest in the HESS Consortium's first annual Member Institution Conference on May 5-6, 2016. Our inaugrial conference will be in Nashville, TN at the newly remodeled Embassy Suites Hotel near the Nashville International Airport and a free shuttle is available for quick transport between your flight and the hotel. Registration deadline is April 1, 2016. Early registration is available with a discount of $10 per registrant if registered before March 15, 2016
Day 1, May 5, 2016 -This day will start at noon with lunch for our member institutions' CIOs, CFOs and Directors who are the primary contact(s). We will share together an overview of HESS's progress this year, cohort groups' progress as well as cohort group meetings with member schools and their respective executive ERP company contact(s). Please note that Jenzabar has declined our invitation to attend the conference but will be submitting a response to HESS's RFP.
Day 2, May 6, 2016 - This is a day for up to 4 staff members from each member institution to see hands-on demonstrations of modules from our software vendor partners. The vendor module demonstrations are concurrent and happen throughout the day on May 6 so your institutional staff can view the products as they wish. We believe that this is a great event for you to meet the HESS Vendor Partners and learn about their solutions in a non-sales environment and talk with their executive leadership. There will be no vendor sales floor so your connections will be directly with software company leadership and technical presenters.
Please make sure to make your hotel reservations as soon as possible given that space is limited in the conference hotel- Embassy Suites- Nashville Airport. Airport shuttles are available from all the hotels near the Nashville International Airport. Please check our website at www.hessconsortium.org for other hotels in the area. This is a HESS members-only and invited software partner event.
