Dear Valued Pro/Engineer Ally:
NOPUG (Northern Ohio Pro/Engineer User Group) is proud to announce PROFACT
'98. Ohio's Premier Pro/Engineer User Group Conference and Trade Show.
PROFACT is now in its third and still growing year. Last year's event
brought together more than 160 serious Pro/Engineer users for a full day of
informative and valuable information. More than 50 vendors, like yourself,
participated in PROFACT '97. This year's goal is 60 vendors. Please
register early to insure your presence at PROFACT '98.
PROFACT is enlarging its capacity this year. Attendance is expected to be
up by 30% from last year. With even more effort being spent this year to
attract the users from neighboring Pro/Engineer user groups, PROFACT '98
will be the largest conference of it's kind. Only the National
Pro/Engineer User Group Conference is Larger.
PROFACT '98 is a free conference for all Parametric Technology Software
Users. The conference is supported solely by vendors, like yourself, as
well as Cooperative Software Partners, Service Bureaus, Value Added
Resellers, Rapid Prototype Companies, and Computer Hardware Companies.
With your participation fee, NOPUG provides incentives to draw users to the
show. Last year NOPUG provided lunch for all in attendance as well as
raffle and cash prizes totaling nearly $10,000. This year will be no
different. NOPUG is estimating about $12,000 will be given back to our
users. Combined with Detailed Focus Groups, Vendor Presentations, and
Keynote Speakers, PROFACT '98 will attract many quality people with a
direct need for your products.
PROFACT '98 needs your help to be a success. Do not delay filling out the
registration form and mailing it in with your payment. This will reserve
your spot in the most important Pro/Engineer conference of the summer.
