ASCEND16 is designed to help Calyx customers and partners ascend to the next level of success. The conference will feature more than 30 specialized breakout sessions and workshops for current customers.
According to a company press release, a vast range of topics will be discussed at the conference. Key topics include: the current state and future of the housing and mortgage markets; reaching the next generation of homebuyers; hands-on training and best practices for various Calyx software and more.
The keynote speakers currently scheduled to appear at the general sessions include real estate mogul and business expert from Shark Tank, Barbara Corcoran and host of NOVA ScienceNow & Yahoo Tech columnist David Pogue.
User conference attendees will also be invited to participate in several networking events, including an opening reception in the exhibit hall where they can meet with a select number of Calyx partners and sponsors showcasing their products and services; a welcome dinner at Champions Square; and a Masquerade Gala celebrating Calyx’s 25th Anniversary at Mardi Gras World.
“In today’s complex, compliance-focused environment, just delivering technology is no longer enough,” said Dennis Boggs, executive vice president at CalyxSoftware, a provider of comprehensive mortgage software solutions.
“It’s important to help clients understand the changing lending landscape and how technology solutions can help drive their business goals. Over the past several years, we’ve offered smaller regional events, but given the massive changes our industry has faced over the past few years, we believe a national event is necessary and will allow us to help our customers feel more confident, capable and prepared for the road ahead,” he said.
ASCEND16 will be held at The Hyatt Regency in New Orleans, Louisiana from October 5 - 8, 2016
This October, CalyxSoftware will host ASCEND16, the company’s first national user conference in New Orleans, LA.
