What about BUC and Connect events?

Does Backstop Beyond mean there is no more Backstop User Conference (BUC)?
BUC is now Backstop Beyond! We have taken the user conference to the next level to help provide attendees with the resources to help drive growth, conquer complexity, and transform data into actionable insight. We will incorporate how to best use the Backstop platform, but also go beyond the software to share ideas and grow as a community of institutional and alternative investors.
Does Backstop Beyond replace Backstop Regional Connect Events?

London Connect and Hong Kong Connect will be hosted in the fall of 2019, after Backstop Beyond, to reach our international audiences unable to join us in Chicago. Other regional events have been put on hold for 2019.
