This year’s North American Galaxy User Group Meeting will be held in vibrant Cincinnati. This historic city on the banks of the Ohio River offers great neighborhoods, iconic food, spectacular craft beer, a trendy revitalized waterfront and a welcoming basecamp for our 2019 UGM.
Our largest event of the year is your opportunity to connect with 160+ other Galaxy users, over 15 vendor partners and the Gateway employees you work with regularly. Learn Galaxy best practices from user-led presentations, find out what’s new and refine your knowledge in our learning lab.
SEPTEMBER 29 – OCTOBER 4, 2019
