Barefoot User Conference 2021- square

We are excited to welcome you to the 2021 Barefoot User Conference

We are looking forward to seeing you in person this September 30 - October 2, 2021 in San Antonio, Texas, at the La Cantera Resort . We have scheduled our show just ahead of the International VRMA show, so you will be able to stay on for that if you would like. 

Barefoot has arranged for a group special of $229 plus fees per night.

Our theme is "Ready and Rarin' to Grow" and we will focus all of our sessions on offering support for your growth (and ours)! We offer content that will be meaningful to all members of your staff, but if you have a suggestion, please feel free to share them here.

If you've never been to a Barefoot User Conference, you are missing out on training, thought leadership, tips and tricks and just an incredible amount of sharing from other Barefoot Users. This is the single most important investment you can take to maximize your use of your central technology.

Our working schedule is posted here. There is something for everyone in this schedule.

  • September 30 -- Additional training, peer to peer session  and 5 strategic client sessions and a welcome cocktail party.
  • October 1 -- Registration/breakfast, sessions all day, lunch and snacks, partner exhibits are open, planned evening activity. 
  • October 2 -- Breakfast and remaining sessions, conference to close at 12 p.m.
  • The cost for the user conference is $450 per attendee. We will bill you the month after your registration.
  • Bring your cowboy boots and your sense of adventure!

"La Cantera Resort & Spa is adjusting daily to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. It is the MISSION of The Resort to provide the SAFEST and CLEANEST environment to our guests and to our associates, as much as possible.  The Resort has teamed up with safety, engineering and chemical partners, consultants, and adopted recommendations from the CDC in the development of our SAFE & CLEAN initiative “LA CANTERA’S CLEAN TOUCH”.
