Get Fired Up From Powering Up at ITEX in March27 Feb, 2015 By: Sand Sinclair, ITEX Conference Director
Many professionals are always asking “What’s new in the office industry?” With all the advances in cutting-edge technologies, most dealers and resellers are looking to keep pace with what’s trending and what to adopt that will keep their customers happy; the bottom line to retaining their business. Thus, we all want the latest information as it relates to our business.
Once a year, business owners, C-level executives, company management and dedicated staffs can look to the annual ITEX Expo & Conference 2015 to “Power Up!” their company profits. This year’s show is held in sunny South Florida, a sought out destination in early March, especially with the cold snap that has chilled many for far too long this winter. Held at the Broward County Convention Center in trendy downtown Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, the show runs from March 10 to 12. The convenient location is located near the Atlantic Ocean, airport, hotels, restaurants, sightseeing and recreation. Golf and boating in March sounds good about now, before and after the expo!
With more than 140 exhibitors to visit, business professionals will also find useable, current information through dozens of Power Hour education sessions at ITEX to help you stay ahead of the encroaching competition. An array of leading peers will empower dealers with credible info and answers to formulate an actionable game plan for 2015 and beyond. ITEX offers dedicated tracks to specifically teach you how to leverage a myriad of business solutions. From navigating the complex sale to developing new partnerships, to reinventing a better business model for adopting new services, including managed IT or enhancing a stale MPS program, as well as a new office supplies platform, you will be empowered with the latest knowledge needed to advance in 2015.
Special Half-Day Workshops: Two deep dive half day workshops (March 10) – one on Channel Diversification (talk about what’s trending and how to profit from it!) from consultants InfoTrends with dealer panel --and another on Business Agility and Planning (from Faculty-led CompTIA presenters) –both for you to find real hands-on tools and strategies to employ to rev up your business model. VIP dinner cruise follows the workshop around the beautiful Intracoastal Waterway.
Additionally, Paul Dippell, leading managed services IT guru, holds a half day workshop on how to sell managed IT, held March 12. This is a not-to-be-missed workshop for those seeking an interactive setting for rich, actionable information in this market.
These type workshops are at a fraction of the price you’d pay for leading analysts to help you restore your business model. I encourage you to consider one or more of these special workshops!
We all know that the global office channels are being challenged through emerging technologies and advancing competition, and a change in how clients conduct their business today. ITEX wants you to have the necessary tools to carry out your business mission – that of capitalizing on what the multi-billion dollar global office industry has to offer. Regardless of where you are in the world, consider joining us this March at USA’s premier event for cutting-edge technologies, education and networking opportunities where you will learn how to leverage, manage and build better business solutions. The industry’s annual homecoming – ITEX Expo – continues to bring together dealers, resellers, distributors, VARs, MSPs, vendors, OEMs and associations to network, learn, partner, and power up for success and profits!. Naturally, we hope to see you at the expo in March!
