SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Feb. 22, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Today marks an important announcement for Column5 Consulting's EPM Leadership Summit events, occurring in both Las Vegas and London later this year. These events post an unparalleled experience for SAP (NYSE: SAP) customers using SAP® Business Planning and Consolidation and other SAP EPM solutions such as Financial Consolidation and Disclosure Management.
In 2018, both the US and EMEA events will feature exciting upgrades to their respective hands-on learning offerings. In EMEA, a full day of hands-on training will be offered on the Summit's first day with a choice of sessions to attend. In the US, these sessions will consist of two half-day sessions, allowing attendees to select from a wider variety of training opportunities. Column5 recognizes the importance of providing educational and networking opportunities for SAP EPM users across the globe, giving users the same valuable experience regardless of location.
"The development of our EPM Leadership Summit training opportunities comes as a direct result of feedback we've received from previous event attendees," said Jami Giovannini, Global Director of Marketing for Column5 Consulting. "Our hands-on offerings are frequently cited among the conference's highlights and provide tremendous value to participants. We are excited to improve these opportunities for those joining us in 2018!"
The 2018 US EPM Leadership Summit will take place at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, from March 12-15. The EMEA Summit will take place at County Hall London, opposite the Palace of Westminster, from May 14-16. In addition to the industry leading training opportunities, each Summit will feature premium SAP EPM and BPC expert-led sessions including roundtable discussions, SAP EPM user-led case studies, lessons in best practices and SAP EPM product roadmaps, as well as the opportunity to network with industry leaders and peers throughout the week.
"We are excited to align with the US in offering a full day of hands-on training to kick off the EMEA Summit this year," exclaimed David Jones, Column5's EMEA Managing Director. "We anticipate our fifth year of the EPM Leadership Summit to be our most successful yet, due in large part to these intensive training opportunities, a unique offering in the EMEA region."
