The AvantLink team is very excited to announce our fifth annual user conference, AvantExpo 2017.
 
Why are we so excited? If you head over to AvantExpo.com, the first thing you will see is a line of text that says “celebrating five years of unmatched networking and unrivaled experiences“. At the core of every AvantExpo since the first event in 2013 has been the idea that attendees must walk away with new contacts and business opportunities that they would not have had the chance to make in any other situation. And that they do it in a way that is so unique, the experience will be remembered for the rest of their lives.
 
Ok, sure, we can say that all day long, but does AvantExpo actually live up to that promise? Take a look at the AvantExpo 2016 recap video and decide for yourself.
 

 
Looks great, huh? But that video is in the past and it’s the future where the exciting stuff is at. Introducing AvantExpo 2017, AvantLink’s fifth annual user conference to be held at the Snowbird Ski Resort in Utah, July 12-14, 2017.

Productive and unforgettable.
 
Question: How many attendees are typically at AvantExpo?
 
Answer: AvantExpo was designed with smaller attendance in mind. The idea was to make sure you had ample time to meet with every other attendee and avoid the simple exchange of business cards and the “I’ll email you after” conversation that happens at bigger conferences. Typically, AvantExpo will have around 40 affiliate attendees and 30 merchant attendees, plus the excellent AvantLink crew.
