The 2017 TribNet meeting presented by Tribute for its TrulinX Software users was recently held at the Downtown Marriott at Key Center in Cleveland and was another successful learning and networking experience.
Tribute hosted more than 160 attendees with many new customers attending and finding value in the software presentations and networking opportunities.
The week began with a day of intense work by the TrulinX PPAB and the Tribute Program Review Committees, where members review and rank the open project lists, helping to determine the direction for future software development.
TribNet kicked off with a welcome from Tribute Inc. president Tim Reynolds and an overview of Tribute’s strategic initiatives. Alicia Booker, VP of Manufacturing at Cuyahoga Community College, presented the keynote presentation, discussing strategies for working with local agencies and community colleges to develop the partnerships that will benefit employers in her presentation “The Skills Gap Dilemma.”
The following companies exhibited, sponsored and presented throughout the event, including:
- Platinum Sponsor: Rubber Tree Systems, which hosted an After Hours party at the Greenhouse Tavern on East 4th Street.
- Gold Sponsors: Enlighten.Net, Tour de Force Inc., and WarehouseTWO
