Annual Conferences

Each year, the XyUser Group sponsor one or more conferences for all users of SDL Structured Content Technology publishing systems. The annual Fall conference is held in a U.S. city. A key benefit of membership in the XyUser Group is a substantial discount on the conference fees.

Volunteer moderators who present sessions at the conference receive an additional discount on conference fees.


The XyUser Group hosts an active internet discussion group for the free exchange of ideas on increasing system productivity and requesting advice from experienced users. This service provides members with the ability to communicate instantly with more than 250 other members. Members are encouraged to submit questions to the listserv. On average, we find more than 1,000 pieces of communication pass through the listserv each month, with many responses coming within moments of a question being submitted. And, very often, we find that member vendor companies or SDL Structured Content Technology personnel respond to the questions. When you’re facing a deadline — with nowhere else to turn — many users find this service along well worth the cost of membership.
