VPA Conference

Late last month we set up a booth at the VPA Conference.
We haven't been on the conference circuit for many years so this was an exciting couple of days for us.

Conference highlight?  Meeting YOU!  We got to chat to so many of our Updat-ed schools (you know there are 450 in our family?) and actually speak face to face!

Presenting our 4 new themes went down a treat. Lots of upgrades coming we suspect. When isn't it a good time for a refresh; a Spring clean dare I say!

You guys are our champions - word of mouth is a wonderful thing!  We got to touch base with quite a few schools who came to visit us upon your recommendation!

Thanks guys!

PS: That's Denis in the pic working the booth with me - he sorta' worked!

For the time being, just get in touch with me (helpdesk@updat-ed.com.au) to guide you through the simple process.

Standby for more new website features.
