Keynotes & Education Sessions

With more than 40 plenary and educations sessions, Forum attendees had ample opportunity to hear about digital lending, compliance issues, and a variety of ways to use their products and services to get the best results.  Headlining the Forum was Captain Mark Kelly, commander of the final flight of Space Shuttle Endeavor and Cam Marsden, a leading expert on generational change.

Exhibits & Sponsors

Our vendor partners are vital to the success of our client events.  Attendees had ample time to visit and discuss with each of them their business needs and how their products and services enhance CRIF technology. And a few of them got to spin ‘The Big Wheel’ for prizes during the showcase sessions.

Next Level Awards

The CRIF Next Level of Achievement Awards were started back in 2015 to recognize clients who have had major successes utilizing our products and services.  This year, ten clients were recognized to receive the glass sculpture award on Monday evening in San Antonio out of a large number of nominees.

San Antonio Sunset Supper

Following the Next Level Award presentations, all of the nearly 350 attendees were treated to a meal featuring a variety of Texas farm-to-table dishes includes their famous Dr. Pepper Cake that drew a big crowd. The event took place around the pool at the Hyatt Hill Country pool and included the sounds of a jazz harpist and percussionist.

Ridin', Ropin' and Rib Eyes

On Tuesday night the closing special event for the Forum was our own private rodeo held at Rio Cibolo Ranch.  The event included bull riding, calf roping and barrel racing.  There was an accident with one of the young barrel racers that stopped the activities for a short time but she ended up being fine, just a little banged and bruised up.

After the Rodeo

The festivities continued with a steak cookout with all the cowboy trimmings, a band of marauding outlaws, pictures with a real Texas longhorn (the four legged kind), country music, games and line dancing.  The evening capped off with the drawing for the trip to Italy won by Penny Latturner of Medallion Bank.


"Best one of these I have attended yet!  keynotes, plenary sessions, evening events and hotel were outstanding as usual.  You should hold this more often."

"Networking opportunities and evening events were great!  Topics of the track sessions were on point with current situations."
