In just a few weeks, MRI’s 2015 International Users Conference (IUC) will be underway in Las Vegas!
Is this your first IUC? Don’t worry, we’ll get you up to speed so that you can look like a veteran and get the most out of your IUC experience!
This year’s theme is Breakthrough. Breakthrough reflects the mentality we’ve embraced at MRI since the initial concept debut of Version X at the International Users Conference two years ago.
2015 has been MRI’s year to break the barriers that limit growth and breakthrough to new products that change the way the real estate industry manages its businesses. The IUC is also about embracing what Version X means for you — our clients – functionality and tools that give you the ability to break through the day-to-day chaos and obstacles to get the job done.
Here are some FAQ and answers to get you started:
Q: Where and when is the IUC 2015?

Q: Why should I attend?
A: Attendees receive two-and-a-half days loaded with sessions on a wide variety of topics, including product road maps, deep dives into functionality, case studies, and more. We will also have a Solutions Room, where representatives of our various functional groups (Services, Support, Sales, Product Management, etc.) as well as members of our Partner Connect program, will be available to discuss with clients their software and business needs. Along with the conference, we have planned multiple networking events which include: a cocktail reception, the MRI Extravaganza Monday night, as well as time to mingle during breaks and at lunch.
Q: Is there a dress code?
A: The dress code for IUC is business casual. Note the conference itself will be entirely indoors, so we suggest dressing for an air-conditioned environment.

A: Yes! MRI will provide CPE credits at IUC. Read more about that HERE.
Q: What networking opportunities will be available?

Q: What are some highlights/events I can look forward to?
A: This year we are offering workshop sessions on all of our product lines with additional focus on the features being debuted in MRI’s latest major release, Version X. Many of the highly demanded sessions from last year will be given again this year, allowing clients to attend sessions that they may have missed at previous IUCs. Some of this year’s highlighted sessions are: Integration Strategies, the ever-popular SQL Series, product-specific focus groups, and a lively general session.

A: Las Vegas weather in October tends to still be warm, but less hot than that of the summer months. The average high is around 80 degrees (Fahrenheit) with lows in the mid-50s. The conference itself will be entirely indoors, so we suggest dressing for an air-conditioned environment.
Q: If I can’t attend, but have already registered, can I transfer my registration to someone else?
A: If you have already registered, please contact MRI so we can help work out a solution to the situation.
Q: Can I bring a guest to the events/classes?
A: Each attendee can register a guest online for the MRI Extravaganza (i.e. the Monday night party) for an additional $150; however, guests cannot attend any sessions. Only clients may attend sessions.
We can’t wait to see you in a couple weeks in Vegas!
