The Daniel Island-based software company said adding the Convio Summit to bbcon 2012 will create an even larger event scheduled for Sept. 30 to Oct. 2 at the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center in Washington, D.C.
The company completed the acquisition of Convio after the Justice Department cleared the deal to move forward at the end of April.
Last year, the conference drew more than 2,100 attendees and offered nonprofit professionals content focused on professional development, technology training and opportunities to network and interact with peers and industry experts, Blackbaud said in a news release.
The company said sessions this year will focus on analytics, arts and culture, constituent relationship management, K-12 education, financial management, fundraising, interactive, and personal and professional development.
Patti Posey, database administrator at Stamford Hospital Foundation, said the conference helps her learn about new technologies and trends, and talk to peers in the industry.
“I have attended the conference for a number of years and each time I come away with new knowledge to help me and my organization work smarter and better,” Posey said. “And that helps us better achieve our mission and serve our constituents.”
