How to Convince Your Boss to Send You to Applied Net 2024

Date Published:


The new year has arrived, and so has some exciting news! Registration for our annual Applied Net® user conference is now open. We hope you’ve been practicing those line dances because Applied Net 2024 is taking over Nashville (yee-haw!) from September 9-12. In keeping up with all the changes happening in our industry, talent, and tech, this year’s theme is (drumroll, please…) The Next Generation. This means our entire event will center around how Applied solutions can help you level up your business and prepare for what’s to come. Now that you know the where and when, let’s talk about the what, who, and why.

What can you expect? A lot of the things that make Applied Net great and worth coming back for every year, plus a few new things along the way! There will be even more interactive education sessions, lots of cool innovation, tons of networking opportunities with your peers, an inspiring guest keynote speaker (hint: they believe you should begin each day by accomplishing a small task), and fun Nashville-themed evening events. Plus, we know you all love some fun swag, so you can expect plenty of goodies this year, too (spoiler alert, you’ll probably see some light-up cowboy hats again!).

Who should attend? The short answer: everyone. The long answer: we serve up content on all our family brands (looking at you, EZLynx®, Ivans®, and Tarmika™) and for everyone at your agency (from principal to CSR to accountant and everyone in between) – we truly try to make this conference a place for everyone. No matter what technology is your match or what role you play, you’ll find ideas, inspiration, and practical tips to apply to your work.

This might be an easy sell to you, but how about your company? We know that registration and travel costs can add up and be a daunting request to your supervisor. So, we've created a list of reasons why the conference is a good investment to help bolster your case to attend Applied Net 2024, advance your professional and personal development, and return an even stronger asset to your company.
