2023 Quality Driven Software Conference
MAY 10-13

We’re so humbled to be known for one of THE BEST conferences of the year.  Watch this video to get an idea of what we have in store for our attendees.

About

People often wonder if the QDS conference is all about QDS.  The answer is, not at all.  Yes, we often release new features at our conference, but 90% of the conference has nothing to do with the software itself.  Other than the fact that the conference is only for QDS &/or Culture First subscribers.  Expect to hear from industry leaders from all types of service businesses.

If you are in the lawn care, maid service, window cleaning, exterior cleaning…you get it…any home service business, this conference is a great fit for YOU.

What To Expect

Expect a smaller, retreat-like conference. We limit the size of the conference to 100 attendees. And we limit it to 100 attendees because we want to keep that small, intimate feel.

Who Should Attend

We have attendees from all different industries: maid service, lawn care, window cleaning, pressure washing, and gutter cleaning. Our speakers come from different industries as well. The topics are primarily owner or lead management level topics.

Our Goals

This conference is about broadening your funnel of knowledge. We typically follow leaders in our industry, but there is so much to learn from other industry leaders, even if YOU have never heard from them. We love to give you a multi-industry look at how different industry leaders approach recruiting, financial KPI tracking, employee retention, sales, etc. We're a big fan of "out of the box" thinking.

Frequently Asked Questions

These are some of the most common questions we’re asked about the QDS conference. If you want to know anything else, give us a call! We’d love to talk to you!

Everything you need to know is right here on our Events page. We continuously update the speakers and session titles/times.  (The dates of the conference remain firm).

However, we do have a Facebook group devoted to the conference.  We share all kinds of information in that group, including airport ride coordination when we get closer to the event.

LOL, not at our conferences!  We are one big happy family and even first time attendees feel the love right off the bat.  You will be “one of us” by the end of the first day.

Many, many people say this is their favorite conference because we work very hard to bring in high caliber speakers who are there to deliver actionable take aways that you can implement right away.  But admittedly, people attend our conferences as much for the fun & camaraderie, as they do for the content.  I won’t deny that we spend some late nights together.  Networking is really when you learn the most, so we justify our evening events as a necessary part of learning.

We were 3 short of selling out last year, and expect to sell out this year.  Our vision is to always keep the QDS conference small.  We limit registration to 100 people.  We could go larger, but we don’t want to because then we’d be just like any other conference.

Yes, This year’s conference is limited to Quality Driven Software and/or Culture First subscribers.

First off, you will fly in/out of the Louis Armstrong New Orleans airport (airport code MSY).  Expect it to take 15 min, or so, to get from the airport to the hotel.  Average taxi/Uber shuttle prices to and from are approximately $40.

Plan on arriving by Wednesday, May 

We also have a wrap up (not-included in registration fee) Sunday brunch planned, so plan to fly out Sunday, February 27th, after 2pm if you want to join us.
