Middle East user group meeting

iSAMS Blog

I am delighted to share news of our forthcoming International User Group meeting being held on Monday 20th March 2017, kindly hosted by The British School Al Khubairat in Abu Dhabi.

Following the success of our previous International User Group meetings and high demand for further meetings, we are excited to be organising another gathering in the Middle East for any school that would like to attend.

In addition, we are offering regional training courses either side of the User Group meeting. The scheduled training courses are some of our most popular courses and a great way to further your knowledge on a specific area of iSAMS. Please take a look at the courses on offer and see which ones you may wish to sign-up for.

About the User Group Meetings

Our User Group meetings are free to attend and are aimed at giving you the opportunity to learn first-hand about new iSAMS products through live demonstrations and updates on future development projects. They also provide a valuable forum for sharing ideas and experiences with fellow iSAMS schools, in addition to sharing your feedback and current/future system requirements with us.

We also ensure there is plenty of time scheduled throughout the day for networking with fellow guests and posing any questions with our experienced team.

User Group Agenda

We are currently confirming the detailed agenda for the day and will publish this as soon as we have final confirmation of our guest speakers.

In the meantime, I am pleased to confirm that the following will be included on the day:
