The conference itself takes place at The Pfister Hotel in downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin on Monday and Tuesday, October 8 and 9. To book your room at The Pfister, visit the Location tab.

We want you to get the most out of Activity Insight. Our goal with User Group is to connect fellow users, your peers, to hear their stories on how they’re using the system to inspire you with new ideas to bring back to your campus. By attending you’re also the first to know what’s in store for Digital Measures in the coming year. Plus, we definitely do more than provide great content—it’s also a lot of fun!

Attendees typically wear business casual clothing at all User Group functions. Wisconsin weather in October can be unpredictable at times, but the average temperature ranges between 46 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit, and all planned events are indoor. Meeting rooms can be chilly, so we encourage you to bring layers to stay comfortable.

On Sunday night we will host a Welcome Reception at our new office space, located in Milwaukee's Historic Third Ward. Heavy appetizers will be served. On Monday evening, we will hold an off-site event that includes dinner. We will provide transportation each night to/from The Pfister.

Yes! If you are joining us for either of Sunday’s full-day certification courses, lunch will be provided. On Monday and Tuesday, we will provide breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack at The Pfister Hotel. See above for the evening meals provided.

While not required, we strongly encourage bringing your laptop to allow for participation in hands-on sessions scheduled throughout the conference.
