Question: What Do You Want Out Of Your Conference Experience?
Answer: Face Time With Potential Clients.
Don’t miss out on “The Square”!
Finding enough hours in each agenda to accommodate a host of panels and speakers on a wide variety of topics coupled with ample networking opportunities can prove to be a challenge! In addition to the panels listed on the main conference agenda, this year we’ll again be featuring a stage within our networking lounge or exhibit area (“The Square”).
Conference attendees can drop in during the times announced to watch short presentations or demos provided by our conference sponsors. This will be a unique opportunity to see brief presentations on today’s hot topics, innovative products or services. A great way to spend a small amount of time to make connections with customers or vendors! The seating area will be intimate and somewhat informal but will allow for questions, demonstrations and dialogue between presenters and attendees.
Drop by “The Square” for a quick dose of education and connection!
