MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwired - Dec 8, 2016) - Jamf, the leader in Apple device management, today announced the venue and opened registration for its eighth annual Jamf Nation User Conference (JNUC) -- the largest gathering of Apple system administrators in the world. The event will be held October 24-26, 2017, at the Hyatt Regency in Minneapolis, MN.
JNUC brings together Apple IT administrators from around the world to foster insight and collaboration regarding new and better ways to manage Apple devices.

Speakers will share experiences and coach attendees on the newest and smartest ways to manage Mac and iOS in schools and businesses of all sizes.
"The growth of JNUC has been tremendous," said Dean Hager, CEO, Jamf. "In 2016, we had record attendance. With more than 1,200 Apple IT administrators from around the world, we had our biggest and best JNUC yet. While 2017's event is still shaping up, registrants can expect unparalleled training and expertise, early access to forthcoming technology and invaluable opportunities to network and learn from peers."
