After being hacked by the 2010 UK general election, Askia has decided to postpone the first Askia User Conference: “opening new frontiers” to 10 June, 2010 still in Paris…
After much speculation, we are delighted to confirm that the inaugural Askia Users Conference will be held on Thursday June 10th at Le Tapis Rouge in Paris.
We are sure you won’t want to miss what promises to be a great event and registration is now officially open.
The aim of the presentations - from all corners of the community - is to show how to extend the scope of Askia software; pushing the limits in survey design, integrating the software in the enterprise information systems, improving productivity through streamlined processes and advanced functionalities, use of new on-line technologies, methodology for dealing with continuous surveys or for quick-return ad-hoc surveys. We very much hope that sharing the information with each other will enable you to view new options in how you use Askia software in your day-to-day role. As mentioned before, this is not a sales forum, but the coming together of colleagues and partners to discuss our common goal of applying Askia technology in imaginative and productive ways to enable you to perhaps redefine the options available to you. Do not hesitate to send us topics you would like to see covered…
So, onto the details:
The fee for the conference will be 250 Euros with a corresponding early bird rate of 200 Euros if you register before Wednesday 31st of March. This includes entry to the welcome reception which will be held on the Wednesday evening prior to the event and one night’s accommodation at a nice hotel in central Paris including breakfast. Additionally, lunch will be provided on site. To register, please send us an email confirming your attendance along with the number of participants and all relevant details for invoicing purposes. Applications need to be emailed to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you don’t need accommodation, the fee will be to 175 Euros; again, confirmation by Wednesday, March 31st gets you the early bird rate of 150 Euros.
In all instances, we will be unable to accept any applications received after Friday, May 14th. So, please let us know if you wish to attend as soon as you possibly can.
For those of you who do require hotel accommodation and who’d like to stay additional nights in Paris, we have negotiated preferential rates on your behalf. Please indicate in your email the number of additional nights required and we’ll contact you with further details.
Finally, if you would like to share your thoughts with fellow users from around the globe, we would love to hear from you. We still have room for a handful of 20 and 40 minute presentations which highlight people’s experiences of pushing the boundaries of market research and where Askia software has played a key role. This call for speakers will end on Wednesday, March 31st so please forward your proposals to me as soon as possible. If selected, final papers would need to be submitted to us by Friday, May 14th.
