Networking:

Connections can be made at a traditional trade show, but with our unique format, lasting relationships are forged through a multitude of networking opportunities. Attendees are able to network and dive more deeply into discussions that cannot be had walking a trade show floor. Regarding the number of end user attendees and solution providers, we believe that quality over quantity adds a higher value to the conversations had, because only the most-qualified attendees are invited to attend and only vendors that are capable of delivering scalable solutions to major enterprises are eligible to sponsor.
