Epicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, announced today that it will host the Epicor Lumber and Building Materials User Conference at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort in Orlando, Florida on November 14-16, 2017.
To be held in "The Theme Park Capital of the World,” conference attendees can expect to unearth new strategies for solving business challenges, participate in hands-on education, and discuss emerging industry, technology, and operational trends.
“The annual Epicor LBM User Conference is invaluable,” said Allen Bavry Jr., information technologies-corporate, Kimal Lumber Company. “Being able to speak face-to-face with other users of the software and get involved in the interactive learning sessions is instrumental.

The North American Epicor lumber and building materials (LBM) management team, account managers, support representatives, and members of the training team will be on hand to teach classes, interact with customers, and demonstrate the latest in LBM and wood products technologies. Throughout the three-day event, customers will have opportunities to join in-depth boot camp sessions, network with peers, and learn industry best practices.
“We are excited to welcome our North American LBM customers to this year’s Epicor LBM conference. The benefits of the conference extend beyond solely software training and education—conference attendees will also have the opportunity to share tactics and ideas with other Epicor customers, product experts, and peers through this exclusive customer event.”
