Attendees Fill the Opal Sands Resort for Three Days of Business Building, Networking and Growth

One hundred and thirty plus technology professionals came together on Oct. 9-11, 2019 at the fourth annual 4U2GROW Conference in Clearwater Beach, Florida. The crowd was filled with managed service providers, value-added resellers, vendors, channel journalists and enterprise solution providers from across the country. 

The event featured 14 speakers, including IT-focused sales and marketing experts who covered business-growth topics including strategies for maximizing profit, capitalizing on telemarketing best practices and growth through account-based marketing, digital marketing and PR. The three-day event was filled with networking and learning opportunities that allowed attendees to share ideas, ask questions and create plans for immediate and long-term business growth.  

Keynote speaker Jay McBain, Principal Analyst for Global Channels at Forrester, took the stage twice to discuss ways to guarantee extraordinary growth and how to prepare your business to sell for millions. Other guest speakers included professional EOS implementer Jonathan Bowman, College H.U.N.K.S. President Nick Friedman and industry experts including: e5 Sales Group President Jim Kinnier, author Manuel Palachuk and consultant Erick Simpson.  

“Learn what customers read, where they go and who they follow,” shared Jay McBain from his Thursday-morning keynote.  

The conference space at Clearwater Beach’s Opal Sands Resort was transformed for the day into a vibrant networking and learning space for attendees to meet, brainstorm and grow. 

Ideas shared during the day included Marketopia CMO Andra Hedden, who explained to the crowd the importance of optimization with this great quote, “If you've got a website that looks good but doesn't do anything for optimization, it might as well be a billboard in the desert.” Marketopia CEO Terry Hedden opened day two with the assurance that the entire conference was focused on “2020 as the year to maximize your business value, prepare your future and pave the way for epic business growth.”
