Catch Us If You Can: Vena Nation Descends on Nashville in May

Vena Solutions to host global finance leaders at annual user conference with notorious keynote, Gartner analyst briefing, CPE-credit training, customer success stories and more

TORONTO, March 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vena Solutions, the fastest growing provider of cloud-based financial planning and analysis (FP&A) software, is excited to announce the lineup for Vena Nation, the company’s 2019 user conference taking place May 15-17 in Nashville, Tennessee.

“Vena has been the best technology investment of my career, and I know from their last user conference that I’m in great company,” said Matthew Blickley, VP, FP&A at Coca-Cola Consolidated, and one of numerous presenting customers at Vena Nation. “I look forward to sharing my Vena success stories on the customer visionary panel and learning all the ways my peers are using the software to drive efficiencies and better business decisions.”

Vena Nation builds on the breakout success of VenaNOLA, the company’s previous sold-out user conference, where over 90% of participating finance leaders said they would attend Vena’s next user conference and recommend it to their colleagues. This year’s event promises to be bigger and better, with hundreds of global finance professionals gathering in Nashville for highlights including:

  • A keynote address by Frank Abagnale, the notorious fraudster turned FBI consultant played by Leonardo DiCaprio in the Hollywood blockbuster, “Catch Me If You Can”
  • A full day of CPE-accredited training, followed by two days of business, technical and executive breakout sessions
  • A customer visionary panel featuring executives from Coca-Cola Consolidated, Mill Creek Residential, Klein Steel Service and Crown Agent Bank on how Vena has elevated the role of finance in their organizations
  • Gartner Vice-President John Van Decker speaking on current trends at the crossroads of finance and technology, and the future of fintech
  • The inaugural Vena Customer Awards to recognize customers who are best in their class across various categories - from FP&A advocacy to financial close management
  • Fun-filled networking events celebrating the music, food and culture of Music City, USA

“Vena Nation is more than an event - it’s a movement, a global community of strategic, next-generation finance leaders,” said Don Mal, CEO of Vena Solutions. “Two years ago we shook up New Orleans, and this year we’re going to rock Music City. Vena customers from across the globe are going to have a great time, returning home empowered, equipped and inspired to take their finance function to the next level.”
