EventPro Software at ACCED-I Conference & Trade Show

Just last week Troy Wruck, Director of Sales and Marketing, attended the 32nd Annual ACCED-I Conference (Association of Collegiate Conference and Event Directors – International) in Denver, CO. This was the 7th year in a row that EventPro has attended the conference, but the first year we focused on EventPro Planner Software.


At the opening of the trade show, there was an optimistic buzz in the air. Directors from around North America joined us at our booth, one after the other, and there simply wasnít enough time to meet and greet everyone. Luckily, we had some time to catch up with others during day two of the exposition.


We were also fortunate to have been invited to participate in social activities, attending the Meet & Greet, the Region 5 Business Meeting, and the Region Dinner. Itís a great opportunity to get to know other ACCED-I members on a personal level and enjoy good company.


At the conclusion, we met with about 50 different colleges and universities, many of whom we will consult with in the coming weeks to gain further understanding of their software needs. Overall, it was a very successful event and we are pleased to have participated.


We always look forward to opportunities to meet our clients personally! Keep posted about future face-to-face events with EventPro’s News website and sign up for our Newsletters on our website.

Did You Know? Backing Up Your Database

Have you experienced that “Oh No!” moment, that sudden shock when you realized you’ve deleted something really important? That moment where you wish someone would hurry up and create a time machine so you could go back and fix your mistake?

Time machines still don’t exist but backing up your data is the next best thing.

We recommend you back up your database nightly, or more, depending on how much information you enter in a day. Also, it's a good idea to create an extra backup every time you undergo a big process that will make a lot of changes. Then, if something goes awry (human error, virus, hard drive crash, etc.), you can simply go back and recover the data you saved at your last back up.

EventPro Planner doesn't have a built-in backup option because backup software is a specialized area and there are so many different products you can buy or get for free. We'll leave backup software to the backup experts. You should consult with your IT staff to determine if a back up process is already in place. If not, our friendly Support Department would be happy to answer any questions and make some recommendations.

There are expanded instructions on taking backups in the EventPro Planner User Manual at Chapter 19: Utilities and Help, Data Backup.
