Thank You for Joining Us at Questica Connect Virtual 2020 – Highlights and Session Overview

Natalie Andrusko, Events & Marketing Strategist, Questica

On June 17th and 18th, 2020 we hosted our first ever virtual Questica Connect event. Over 250 attendees joined from across the United States and Canada. Due to the challenging climate we are all currently facing, we decided to cancel all scheduled in-person events for 2020 and shift to a virtual platform. Just like other companies around the world, Questica is constantly evaluating our event strategies to ensure that we continue to create opportunities for public sector organizations to connect. At Questica, we will continue to bring our events to you directly via a virtual platform, and we are excited about using new technologies and methods to continue our conversations with you.


The high level of engagement and fluid conversations during this virtual event highlighted the need all organizations and professionals crave right now – the need to connect and network. “I loved that this event was free and allowed individuals to jump on and off as needed. It was a cool way to do it. For groups with smaller budgets or further to travel it helps them get this information without the cost,” said one Questica Connect 2020 attendee. Another remarked that the event made it easier to connect with Questica SMEs, “It’s so great to find community among users and hear from Questica staff.”


Once registered for Questica Connect Virtual 2020, attendees had the flexibility to drop in for their preferred sessions over the two-day event. Throughout the event, attendees heard from the Questica team and some of our key partners, Balancing Act and F.H. Black & Company Inc. This year’s virtual Questica Connect event continued to encourage our customers, partners and guests to network and collaborate as we discussed budgeting trends and best practices throughout our sessions. We also examined how to take advantage of the key features in our Questica Budget, OpenBook and Budget Book solutions.
