If this will be your first time attending the Forum, let us help you get your bearings. This intimate reception is only open to any first time Forum attendees. You’ll have a quick opportunity to network with your fellow first timers, the Advantage Steering Committee and CGI leadership.

Showcase Reception

Don’t miss the opportunity to chat with Showcase partner vendors and CGI product experts. Get started on learning more about CGI Advantage and partner products and find the answers you’ve been looking for in this relaxed kick-off to CGI Forum 2019.

Welcome Back by Giving Back Reception

Just as the goal of the Forum is to benefit the User Group community, we aim to also benefit the community that we gather in by giving back! This year at the Welcome Reception there will be music, food, drinks and a number of activity stations that will benefit a variety of local Louisville charitable causes.

Enjoy lunch while networking with your fellow user community members and listening to remarks and important updates by your Users’ Group Steering Committee. 

An Evening at the Kentucky Derby Museum

Grab your seersucker jacket or don your finest picture-hat for an evening at Churchill Downs! This reception will take place the Kentucky Derby museum, dedicated to preserving the history of the most exciting 2-minutes in sports. You’ll have the opportunity to view exhibits on the Derby’s rich history, meet the track’s resident thoroughbred and meet local jockeys. Take a walking tour of the track and winner’s circle, where history has been made. Of course, there will be live entertainment and plenty of food and drink to make it feel like an authentic Derby party!

Peer-to-Peer Roundtable Luncheon

Roundtables give attendees an opportunity to learn from their peers by sharing expertise and discussing practical approaches to success in their field—all while developing stronger networks. In this year’s simplified process, table topics will consist of Advantage modules, allowing for more flexibility and flow around the conversation. Topic questions will be provided and table leads will be on hand to spark conversation with your fellow users. Meet new friends or reconnect with past attendees at Tuesday’s networking luncheon.

Here's what a few of our past attendees had to say about the value of attending the Forum:

I attended my first Forum in Dallas in 1996. At the time, I couldn't fully appreciate how much I would take away from the event through learning and networking with my peers. Now, nineteen years later, I still look forward to attending the Forum, confident that I will bring back ideas that will enrich and extend my organization's use of (CGI) Advantage. I will make contacts I can call upon long after the event ends.

Great opportunity to meet current users as well as other new users.

Excellent job fostering partnerships between clients.
