It’s summer, and that means it’s getting hot out there, but it also means it’s the height of events season! 

At DCKAP, we wholeheartedly embrace the opportunities to network, socialize, and shake hands with the many communities dedicated to supporting distributors, and the value of sharing our knowledge and expertise. We believe traveling and attending events are important tenets of growth.


Once again, the Prophet 21 WorldWide User Group is hosting their annual event for members and vendors. This year, starting on August 20th and running until August 22nd, P21WWUG Connect 2023 will take place in Dallas, Texas at the Sheraton hotel. 

In an ever-changing and fast growing environment like distribution, with so much information to parse through and with various issues to find solutions for, having a dedicated resource such as the P21WWUG Connect event is invaluable. 

P21WWUG Connect Attendees

Who Should Attend and Why?

There are many benefits to attending the conference, whether you are an Epicor P21 customer, or a wholesale distributor in need of digital solutions, a vendor looking to network with potential clients, or an expert in the industry looking to further your education. 

This conference provides a great opportunity to hear from distributors, learn from top notch solution providers, and to network with other P21 companies, with the opportunity to attend classes taught by Epicor, by fellow members, third-party solution providers, and guest speakers. You can share your pain points, your questions and ideas, your products or services, and learn more about the latest trends and the best paths to take, whether for right now or for the future.

This event offers P21WWUG members from all across the globe a world class venue in which to come together and connect, to learn about current affairs and the latest in technology, to socialize with peers and make meaningful connections with each other.

At DCKAP, we’ve been attending the P21WWUG Connect annual event for the past six years, and we’re proud to have grown so much in this community over that time. Being welcomed with open arms from the beginning, we’ve been able to share our knowledge across eCommerce, in digital transformation, integration, and create lasting relationships with attendees and other vendors alike.

What Can You Expect?

The P21WWUG conference includes an impressive lineup of expert educational sessions provided by group members and sponsor vendors, informative roundtable discussions, as well as exhibits and presentations on relevant topics and trends.
