Kicking off in New York’s Silicon Alley at the Javits Center – this year’s Inforum is set to dazzle. At Inforum 2017  you’ll learn how Infor is reimagining enterprise software and get to spend some time enjoying New York City. Plus, Grammy Award-winning artist, Bruno Mars, will headline the Customer Appreciation Concert on Wednesday, July 12 at 8:30.

Not only will attendees enjoy 2 ½ days of informative and imaginative sessions, but they will also be able to network with other Infor professionals and visit with partners and sponsors at The Hub, Infor’s expo. At The Hub, guests will be able to participate in demonstrations and Speed Sessions, as well as learn from exhibitors and product experts. Best of all, The Hub is the place to grab a bite during all of your learning!

Washington Frank USA will also be in attendance at the event. We’re just guests like you, but look for us in the halls between sessions – we’ll be wearing green polos. Our team will host a business card drop competition – the winner receives a $100 Starbucks gift card! We’ll also have goodies to give away such as our brochures and Washington Frank Bear Keychains.
