What are people saying about our events?

“Sharepoint Conference 2013 in Melbourne was one of the best conferences I have attended and that I got much more from it than just information about SharePoint. I do now have a much clearer understanding of the direction I should take in introducing SharePoint into my organisation, and have established initial contacts with the vendors I will most probably use.
So it was two days very well worth my time. I look forward to your next conference.”

Les Firth , Resources Manager, Yarra Plenty Regional Library, Australia
“It was one of the best IT conferences and most useful and applicable seminars I have ever been to since I have been working in business systems management at IT, document automation and legal firms. It was inspiring, the presenters were well-informed and passionate about their subjects, the general level of the conference was professional and the different “tracks” were all applicable.“
Meghan Kemp , Sydney-based Document Controller/SharePoint Administrator, White Energy, Australia
“The SEA SPC has become the definitive community-run SharePoint education and networking conference in Southeast Asia. It was my personal pleasure to be part of the truly diverse global speaker team at this event and the feedback from all the attendees we have spoken to has been extremely positive. AvePoint is proud to sponsor SEA SPC for the second straight year as our way to contribute to the SEA SharePoint community. …….”For 2013, on the heels of the Microsoft SharePoint 2012 conference in Las Vegas, I foresee an even higher level of excitement and educational effectiveness in the SEA SPC 2013!”
Dr. Tianyi (TJ) Jiang, AvePoint Co-CEO & Co-Founder
“The hard work and excellent planning was very evident: the pre-conference communication was excellent, the use of technology was inventive (the conference agenda was made available as a OneNote notebook for easy reference and central update and we used Yammer extensively in the months leading up to the conference), the food was great, the Las Vegas night was a lot of fun, and on and on. Putting on a conference like this is far more work than most attendees realize, and this team does it exceedingly well.
Special thanks to Debbie Ireland for inviting me to speak at the two conferences in the first place. I was honored to do it, and it was extremely gratifying to have the chance to meet a number of people who love using SPServices in their day-to-day work with SharePoint.”
Marc Anderson , Sympraxis Consulting, USA: Speaker 2014 AU/NZ conferences
“SharePoint is an integral part of our company solutions, and the SPevents conferences provide the focus and content to enable us to reach our target audience. As a sponsor making both a financial and time-based commitment, it is important the event is run professionally; with great content, speakers and conference structure to help ensure we maximise our return on investment. SPevents has delivered on each occasion in coordinating and delivering a successful event for us as a sponsor, while providing value to attendees.
We will continue to support this community, given the benefits we have seen from our involvement.”
James Fox, Director, Scinaptic Communications Pty Ltd, OnePlaceMail: Outlook Email to SharePoint Integration
“The conference was a great place to meet a variety of people and find out how they are using SharePoint. The sessions were relevant to what’s happening now and what’s best practice.”
Amy Gordon, SharePoint Administrator, Intergen, New Zealand
“The ShareThePoint conference provides a great opportunity for the community to come together to share and celebrate success stories around SharePoint. The knowledge and expertise that is openly shared is like no other community conference in the Asia Pacific region.”
James Milne, Myriad Technologies Chief Technical Officer
