ShoWorks User Conference & Training

Buffalo Bill Center of the West

Cody, Wyoming   April 4th-6th 2018

 

We invite you and your staff to join us this spring for a 3-day intense training workshop on ShoWorks. This conference is open to all ShoWorks users regardless of their experience level - from those who have never laid eyes on the software, to the advanced user seeking to discover new ways to improve and streamline their efficiencies within the program. Every aspect of the program from A to Z will be explored in an auditorium followed by a classroom setting, totaling 14 hours of instructional time, all within the world-class and famous Buffalo Bill Center of the West!
"I had several people from other fairs peeking over my shoulder last week. I told them how valuable the conferences were to helping me understand what the program can do. Being a volunteer who doesn't play with my program on a weekly or even monthly basis, your instruction and the break out sessions were so very helpful. The Conference helped me understand ShoWorks and Short-Course helped me really lock it in."
- Jennifer Kisling, Northwest District Junior Livestock Show (OK)
