Regional Client Days Provide Vital Networking and Insight on Hot Topics  

One of the highlights of 2015 was the regional Client Days. These events were the first of their kind in many regions. Smaller and more targeted than our bi-annual client summit, they provide a unique opportunity for our customers to participate in discussions about our future roadmaps, hear from industry experts and network with peers.

A total of 161 clients from 39 countries attended and feedback was overwhelmingly positive.

"I had a great experience at Client Days. The sessions were informative and focused on relevant topics. I made lots of contacts and strengthened relationships with OpenLink staff and had a great time in the process. In short, it was everything that an event should be!"

"Best user group conference I’ve attended."
