“Attendees of our premiere conference in 2005 said CCH set the standard for an exciting and educational event that would be hard to top – but that’s just what we aim to do in 2006,” said CCH CEO Kevin Robert. “Our customers count on us to deliver best-in-breed products and services that will give them a strategic business advantage. This conference is another way CCH delivers on that commitment.”

Professionals attending the four-day event at Boca Raton Resort and Club in Boca Raton will learn how to further deepen client relationships; make smarter and more strategic investments in technology; apply best practices used by leading practitioners from firms of all sizes; and best leverage the industry’s most advanced tax and accounting software and services.

  • CPE-accredited education sessions and panel discussions on practical business issues and successful strategies;
  • Interactive roundtable discussions on hot topics facing the industry;
  • Peer-to-peer networking sessions, where attendees will learn from each other about successful best practices in overcoming business challenges;

Throughout the conference, attendees will be part of a community of CCH customers and will have the benefit of learning from colleagues about real-life best practices that have been successful.

“Networking with fellow CCH customers was seen as a great benefit by those at the first User Conference,” noted Vice President of Sales and Marketing Mike Sabbatis. “That’s not surprising, because they are among the top tax and accounting professionals in the country.”

The conference also provides customers with the opportunity to speak directly to CCH executives and senior product management and development teams to help shape new products and drive product enhancements.

“Our customers know CCH isn’t a single software application, or a book on a shelf. With our integrated information and software resources, productivity tools, integration with Microsoft® Office, and workflow solutions, we’re working with our customers side-by-side all day, everyday. We’re their business partner,” said Robert. “The conference provides the ideal forum for customers to tell us directly about the challenges they face and how CCH can partner with them most effectively to help them overcome those challenges.”

2006 Conference Builds on Success of Inaugural Event

CCH’s first ever User Conference proved to be a great success, with over 500 attendees, guests, strategic partners and CCH representatives attending the four-day event amidst the beautiful surroundings of the Westin Kierland Resort and Spa in Scottsdale, Ariz. in November, 2005. Overwhelmingly, attendees of the 2005 conference said they would attend the 2006 forum, with many bringing additional members of their firm with them.

“In every way, the CCH User Conference was a first-class event that provided me with new information, ideas and insights that I was able to apply to drive business and process improvements,” said 2005 User Conference attendee Jim Sharvin, of Sharvin & Associates CPAs. “There’s something to gain for firms of any size and professionals at any level from attending an event such as this.”
