Live Plan Software Demo
LivePlan (www.liveplan.com) is Palo Alto’s new, online business planning tool. Since LivePlan is a cloud-based, software-as-a-service product, it has some distinct advantages. For example, LivePlan is browser based, so it will operate on either a Mac or Windows operating system from anywhere the user has internet access. LivePlan also includes the ability for multiple users to contribute to a plan simultaneously. Hourly giveaway - Live Plan access for one year ($240 value)
Need vendor space? We have that as well.
We are currently assigning space for vendors. Booths are six foot tables and two chairs. Exhibit tables are reasonably priced at $100 for UEN members and $175 for non-members. Includes coffee and refreshments.
