As you have likely heard by now, we have decided to take IVANS Connect online. And while we would like to say it was a hard decision to miss the opportunity to see you all in person, the decision was ultimately an easy one. The health of our customers, partners and employees is our number one priority, and given the ongoing concerns about COVID-19, we would rather bring our world-class event directly to the safety of your home.

Yes, we are disappointed that we won’t be kicking up our boots together in Nashville, but we are excited to bring the same great content and conversations you’ve experienced at our in-person event to you as an interactive online experience.

During the event, you’ll have the opportunity to hear from IVANS leaders and industry experts; be the first to see new products plus, a host of enhancements we're making to our current market-leading product lineup; and connect online with professionals from across the industry. Best of all, you get access to all this and more without ever leaving the comfort of your home or office and at no charge.

While I look forward to the day that we can all be together in person, I'm personally excited about our first-ever virtual IVANS Connect and the opportunities it brings. I hope you will join us online Wednesday, September 16 for the industry’s only conference dedicated to advancing the industry’s exchange.

I wish you all continued good health and hope to see you online this fall.

Vice President and General Manager, IVANS
