Event Overview

Conference rescheduled due to Coronavirus

We had hoped that news of the virus spreading would have abated and it would be safe for our members, sponsors, speakers and staff to attend the conference as planned. As this is not the case we have made our decision to reschedule as a precaution to protect the health and safety of all concerned.

The event will now take place at the same venue in October. All sponsorship and attendee registrations will remain valid so there is no need to re-confirm any bookings.

Interested in sponsorship/exhibitor/speaking opportunities? Let us know by contacting us here.

Join us for cocktails followed by our annual conference dinner in the evening of Tuesday 28th April. This year we are going to enjoy a variety of traditional (and not so traditional!) games during a casual 'Tasting' buffet. A great opportunity to get to know fellow members, both users and vendors.

Do you have an M3 Story to tell? The M3UA conferences are greatly enhanced by real M3 User Case Studies (go-lives, roll-outs, digital transformation or business improvement projects, extensions, enhancements, challenges and successes). Why not share yours? Contact us here.

What would you like to see at the conference? Presentations on a particular topic? Round-table discussions? Special Interest Group meetings? Enhancement Request discussions? We're only just starting to form the agenda, let us know what your ideas are by contacting us here.
