Primavera 2013 - "Seven hours each way and well worth coming for!"

11 October 2013

We had an outstanding Primavera event with packed rooms, an excellent agenda and inspired delegates. Over 130 attended and enjoyed the day.

For those of you who missed out on Primavera 2013, or simply want to enjoy the information again, we’ve got it right here…

The agenda spanned two streamsand  included a mix of  user experience stories and product updates. Oracle, partners and users gathered to share experiences, network, and get the latest information on their product as well as benefiting from hints and tips from their peers on issues they face in the work environment.

Dick Farris, Oracle, the opening keynote was as expected a huge hit. Flying in from the States, Dick was met with a warm reception by the Primavera community, who fed off his passion for the User Group, the event and the Primavera offerings. He is a familiar face and very welcomed integral member of the Primavera Community having remained on board after the Oracle accusation of the product.

"Highlight of the day: Seeing Dick Faris, the father of scheduling - inspirational session!" Simon Taylor, Transport of London

We were also delighted to have Steve Elliott's present a keynote session on 'Programme & Project Controls - Have we Lost our Way?'. It was the most well attended session of the whole day!

New for 2013! Each of our Primavera Partners were given a 10 minute session throughout the day where customers were able to ask questions and hear more about their products. Many thanks to all Primavera partners for taking part.
