Acumatica Summit 2021: Customer Agenda

Its true what you’ve heard, Acumatica Summit 2021 will take place LIVE and IN-PERSON  beginning with a Hackathon July 16th-17th, Summit from July 18th – July 20th and Technical Training from July 21st to July 23rd in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Wynn Hotel and Casino!

With the health and safety of all involved at the top of mind, Acumatica and the Wynn have reassured both partners and users alike that a powerful team of leading public health professionals have created a comprehensive Health and Safety protocol based on the most effective practices available.

The Wynn’s Health and Sanitization Plan is the result of months of research, development and field test success. The precautions include: a face covering requirement for all individuals in public spaces with face coverings made available at each resort entrance, a comprehensive cleaning and sanitization protocol, non-invasive thermal cameras scanning public areas, guestrooms sealed with a disinfection sticker prior to check-in and over 300 hand sanitizing stations throughout the property.  

On top of all this, the Wynn Las Vegas is one of the first resorts to become Sharecare Health Security VERIFIED™ by Forbes Travel Guide – no small feat.  With these precautions in mind, we are excited to announce Acumatica Summit 2021 early bird registration is now open! Take a closer look at the agenda and plan ahead of time!
