Why should you come to XUG 2019?

Registration for the 2019 eXtyles User Group Meeting is now open! Here’s why we think you should join us for the 15th annual XUG.

Meet the people behind your software

The software you use every day is developed, maintained, supported, and documented by real people, and XUG is your chance to meet those people! During XUG, you’ll be introduced to everyone on the eXtyles team, learn about what we do, and have opportunities to get to know us in person.

I love how informal and comfortable everything was, and how receptive Inera staff is to all comments.

XUG is an all-hands-on-deck affair! You’ll see members of our Support, Configuration, Development, and Sales & Marketing teams at your tables, at the podium, and behind the registration desk.

►►If this is your first XUG, be sure to come to our First-Time Attendee Orientation!

Help shape the eXtyles of tomorrow

eXtyles has been growing and improving for almost 20 years now, and customer feedback has played a crucial role in that growth! XUG attendees are the first to hear about new and upcoming eXtyles features and improvements, and you help us chart the course of what’s next by bringing shared needs, wants, and development ideas to the surface during the day’s discussions.

Lively and interesting. It is clear you are passionate about your products and making them better.

You’re the reason we do what we do. You know what your organization needs—or, if you’re not quite sure, we can help you figure it out.

Network, share, and learn

Both during the formal parts of the agenda and when we gather for refreshments and informal discussions in between, XUG is full of opportunities to share ideas, tips, and tricks; collaborate with us and with other eXtyles users on solutions to your shared workflow challenges; and network with colleagues at other organizations.

I talked to and exchanged information with more people than I ever have at larger multi-day meetings like SSP.

As well as discussing our technology and providing networking opportunities for attendees, we always aim to include relevant and meaningful education on best practices and industry standards.

Publishing professionals are some of the most collegial, collaborative, and dedicated people there are. We set the stage for XUG, but it’s the attendees who make it such an engaging meeting!

Take home your XUG swag!

Our annual XUG attendee gift is always a surprise. We make sure gifts are made in North America and look for items that you’ll find useful at work, at home, or during your travels.

All you have to do is come to XUG and fill out our brief meeting evaluation! Then pick up your gift and head to the reception for some high-quality snacks, beverages, and socializing. Cheers!
