Certify Looks Back on the Week that was: AFP 2017

Certify Looks Back on the Week that was: AFP 2017

Well that's a wrap on AFP 2017 as we have finally returned home after all the festivities of last week. This year's event was a smashing success as over 7,000 finance professionals converged on the San Diego Convention Center to learn about all the new exciting products, services and trends in the finance industry. This year Certify was in attendance in a big way with a prominent booth right in the middle of the action.

It's not surprising that Certify's booth was a popular spot for AFP attendees as we had it fully stocked with Starbuck's coffee and a donut buffet provided by the award-winning Donut Bar. Also, all those who stopped by our booth walked away with a Certify t-shirt and water bottle and were entered for a chance to win a GoPro HERO5 Black action camera. Our booth was constantly busy, as we had plenty of scheduled demonstrations lined up and plenty of walk-ins to check out what Certify had to offer.

As for the event itself, it delivered everything that was promised and then some. AFP 2017 boasted some great speakers such as Mike Rowe and Shankar Vedantam who presented some engaging keynote presentations. On top of the keynotes, AFP 2017 packed in a wide array of finance industry experts, top vendors and engrossing presentations and panels that captivated audiences over the course of the conference.

Now after all this activity, conference attendees and us at Certify needed a way to unwind after such an eventful couple of days. Certify hosted a party at The Deck at Moonshine Flats to provide convention-goers with a fun place to meet up and get down. And judging from the turn out, it seems after a couple of hectic days, everyone was ready to blow off some steam.

The night was filled with fun, drinks, foosball and smokehouse BBQ, a recipe for a great night out. With over 350 registered guests, it was quite the party that went late into the night with some pretty intense games of cornhole, ring toss and shuffleboard filling every corner of the venue.

Needless to say, the Certify team had an awesome time out in San Diego. We had the chance to link up with a lot of old friends, and were able to meet some new ones as well, making the event an absolute pleasure for all involved. In fact, we had so much fun this year we are all already excited for AFP 2018 in Chicago. We hope to see you to see you there!
