Make the Connection!

Come join customers, partners, and the NextGate Team at Make the Connection! our annual user conference. You’ll learn almost everything you’ve wanted to know about our MatchMetrix® product suite, including the new iDAS solution framework. Throughout the conference and during our Customer Appreciation cocktail reception on Monday night, you’ll get to share experiences with other users, meet the NextGate executive, engineering, services, and sales teams, and just have a lot of fun!

Sessions will span two days and cover both technical and business tracks. Since the program begins on Monday morning, we are also offering optional pre-conference sessions on Sunday evening for those who arrive early.

This fantastic event is being held at the beautiful and relaxing Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa in Dana Point, CA., a little over an hour south of Los Angeles. Located across from the beach and with many on-site amenities, it’s a great opportunity to bring friends and family. We’ve even arranged for the discounted room rate to apply before and after the conference, so you can make a holiday of it. Register today!
