“Several years ago, we decided to give our annual user conference a name that reflected the spirit of the event, and we unanimously decided on ‘Connect,’” said Dexter + Chaney President and CEO Norbert Orth. “We certainly made the right call because we’ve been able to build an even stronger brand for our conference.
