The TechSummit series provides unmatched exposure to key IT decision makers within the top 50 metro markets. For less than the cost of a few in-person sales calls you can speak to a group of 80-130 key IT decision makers. Selected sponsors receive a speaking opportunity, a 6 foot draped exhibit table, electricity, WiFi, breakfast and lunch for two sponsorship representatives. Be sure to reserve early to avoid a wait list situation.

I pretty much stopped doing these types of events because of poor attendee quality and volume but this totally changed my mind. I'm going to send out an internal email to my peers recommending they do your events." - Barracuda Networks, Tim Solomon, Commercial Accounts Manager

Our live events are structured for maximum efficiency from
both a presenter and attendee standpoint. We feature
non-competitive companies that are best of breed in their
domain. Our Delegates, free from hearing competing sales
pitches from multiple vendors, can instead focus on whether
the speaker's solutions fit with their
organizational/technical needs. We handle every event-related
logistical issue, making it very easy for our partners to
simply show up at 7 am and have their display table set up
before attendees arrive at 7:30. In addition to breakfast and
lunch, there is a 45 minute mid-morning break, allowing every
single attendee plenty of time to meet with every single
vendor of interest.
This is a horizontal event, drawing individuals who work across all industries within a region - retailing, manufacturing, professional services, finance/insurance, transportation/logistics, healthcare, universities, and government - who can directly buy (and/or influence the purchase of) products and complementary services provided by sponsors/speakers. Bizsummits drives attendance through highly focused email campaigns and
