SIGUCCS is unique in its diversity of attendees (help desk personnel to CIOs), topics (technical sessions to career advancement), nationally-renowned speakers, and having a schedule that facilitates networking with peers and exhibitors.
SIGUCCS also fosters personal connections between exhibitors and attendees. Whether it’s the opportunity for an in-depth discussion outside of sessions or over a meal, you get far more than a name, title and business card.
Importantly, at an average of 250 attendees, SIGUCCS is large enough for exhibitors to make a number of contacts, yet small enough such that each of those connections is personal and deep. Exhibitors are placed right in the major thoroughfares of the conference space- we do not have a separate exhibit hall. This is the same space where we hold our breaks and many informal conversations occur between attendees. Exhibitors are in direct contact and have a captive audience. Attendees will often engage in discussions over the course of the entire conference.
