eoStar User Forum 2020

The User Forum meeting is a biennial event focused on bringing eoStar distributors together! Distributors are able to learn about new features with eoStar, share best practices with peers, and develop strategies for success. Learn tips and tricks on how to make features you’re already using better and discover new ideas that you can implement within your distribution to increase productivity, efficiency, and profit.

We invite you to join us as we highlight new features and products as well as engage in discussions on key industry topics.

 

Once registered, you will receive a link to the attendee hub during the week leading up to the forum. From the hub, you will be able to review your registered sessions. Most importantly, once the time for each session arrives, you will access the live stream of the event from the hub.
