When the conversion is approved, we will set a "go-live" date. We will schedule a time to get the final copy of your data and convert it into your actual VenueOps account. Once you send us the final copy of your data, no further changes should be made in FASTbook - they will not be reflected in VenueOps.

  3. Send the file to us (via
