With just two weeks to go before AdventConnect: Monte Carlo, a lot of people have been asking me, “What’s the most exciting thing about this conference?” Well, there are lots of exciting things, of course, but here are four that I particularly want to highlight.
First, we’ll be unveiling the next generation of Advent solutions, including our new asset and wealth management platform, and all the latest on our solution for alternative investment managers. As you can see from Pete’s and Todd’s recent posts, we’re taking a very exciting direction, and these new solutions are the first steps down that road, so it will be great to share them with our clients.
Next, we’ve got a heavy-duty training program lined up, with tips and tricks and hands-on courses that will help you discover the new features available in our solutions. Our training program is always a big favorite at our conferences. It’s a great opportunity for our clients to find practical ways to make the most of their Advent solutions and save time and effort going forward. And we always provide great takeaways.
Throughout the conference, there will be plenty of networking opportunities. For example, on Monday evening we’ll host a Meet the Executives cocktail event. I’m really looking forward to catching up with our clients, and I know the other executives are excited to be meeting new friends and old, getting first-hand feedback on how our clients are doing and how our solutions are helping, and learning about what we need to work on to continue improving the way we meet their needs.
Last but definitely not least is the location. This is the second time we’re hosting a conference in Monaco, a great, sunny place that’s buzzing with activity and offers stunning Mediterranean views. And for those who decide to stick around for a few days, what better way to follow our conference than by attending the classic Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix?
