Local and national sponsors included Datto, Webroot, Chanel Pro Network, Taylor Business Group, Stanton IP Law Group, SAP and Appriver.
The event held on October 11-13 at the Postcard Inn in St. Pete Beach, Florida was an opportunity for technology service providers from across the country to network with peers and learn proven strategies to overcome challenges, develop growth strategies, share best practices and strengthen channel relationships.
4u2grow featured seasoned business development experts like Aaron Ross, author of Predictable Revenue; Aakash Patel of Elevate Inc.; Thomas Stanton of Stanton IP Law Firm, and David Powell of LogicMonitor. They provided proven strategies for common challenges like creating lucrative contracts and generating sticky revenue. Attendees were able to interact with speakers during intimate networking sessions.
“We’ve all been to other events in the industry where there have been hundreds, maybe thousands of people,” said Robert Kyslinger, Managing General Partner of Omnipotech. “This was an intimate setting where you got time to spend with peers and partners one-on-one, deep-dive and get some collaboration going.”
Sponsors were able to connect with active channel partners, take them to exclusive dinners and display their latest products and services in front of active channel partners. They also took the opportunity to host breakout sessions, networking events and more.
“The conference was extremely intimate and there was a lot of networking and one-on-one time with attendees,” said Christine Gassman, Director of Business Development for Datto, “We’ve been able to share Datto resources that allow them to continue their growth while working with Marketopia long-term.”
