ShoWorks: A Real-Life Access Success Story, Part 2

Mike Hnatt

Following up on his DAAUG presentation in 2016, Mike Hnatt will talk about the latest version of ShoWorks, the leading fair management software in North America. ShoWorks has a 75% market share, used by the majority of fairs across the country. Mike first developed the application in 1996 with Access skills and industry knowledge, and has grown his company and software into a market leader now generating $1 million in annual sales. Still a classic Access desktop application at its core, ShoWorks now additionally supports iPad and web browser access. Please see a video demo of ShoWorks here

Mike will be joining us to talk about his experience making an Access application into an industry-leading software program. We’ll hear about how he developed the software, some of its great features, how he marketed and grew his business, and his thoughts about Access going forward. There will be plenty of time for questions, as well.

Please join us for this very special presentation and discussion!
