World of Wizards: A Recap of UGM ’17 in Pictures

Lord Voldermort was no where to be found, but there were lots of wizards, muggles and even a few healthcare executives on the grounds of Epic Systems headquarters in Verona, WI this week, site of the annual Epic User Group meeting.

World of Wizards was the theme for 2017, a nod to the Hogwarts-style buildings recently added to the Epic campus. Magic wands, broomsticks and wizarding robes were plentiful as Epic employees and guests got into the spirit of things (as did Epic founder Judy Faulkner).

It was a magical week for those in attendance. But if you missed it, Instagram users have you covered, capturing much of the event on camera and sharing it to social media. Below we share some of our favorites pics from the week:

It was hard to miss the theme for the week:  World of Wizards...
