We're hard at work creating the program for 2024, but in the meantime, take a look at the program from last year for an idea of what you'll get.

 

Experience a World of Learning at the 2023 Discovery Conference

This year, our theme is "Building Bridges, Breaking Barriers". We're focusing on how iMIS can connect different parts of an organisation and overcome challenges. This conference is your opportunity to learn how to harness the transformative potential of iMIS in fostering communication and overcoming obstacles within your organisation.

At the 2023 Discovery Conference, we're offering three unique learning tracks designed to maximise your educational experience and iMIS learning.

Track One: Interactive Workshops

Our first track focuses on workshops, providing you with the opportunity to connect with presenters and fellow attendees. These sessions are designed to foster interaction, learning, and networking.

Track Two: Learning Track

The second track is all about learning from the experiences of other iMIS users and professionals. These sessions feature interactive panels and discussions.

Track Three: Extending iMIS 

Learn how you can get even more out of your iMIS investment.

We'll also feature special sessions like the opening iMIS Celebrations, the Great Things Award winners, and more.
