I’m writing at present with a possibility for our viewers.
As you would possibly know, on account of COVID-19 we needed to cancel Complete Tech Summit, which might have taken place in November in Cleveland for you optimists. We determined to as an alternative maintain an internet expertise.
It’s not the identical factor, and we perceive that. One of many nice attracts of Complete Tech Summit is the networking that happens on the occasion. Tons of of friends pairing off, sharing info, studying, assembly with potential producer companions, and naturally having the occasional drink.
I’ve personally spoken with integrators which have saved in contact with friends they had been seated with all year long. One integrator credited these connections with rising his income – the discussions they’d all year long helped all of them develop their companies.
One of the best factor is that we’re deliberate about it. At Complete Tech Summit integrator attendees are assigned tables primarily based on their measurement and site. So a $30M per 12 months integration agency working in Texas could be with $25M-$25M integrators from Wisconsin, Florida, Connecticut, guaranteeing they aren’t competing companies and a free change of concepts is feasible. In the meantime the desk beside them holds integrators of $2M-$5M per 12 months, serving separate areas, discussing utterly completely different issues and options going through integration corporations of their measurement.
That’s the rationale connections are made, and integrators maintain coming again. It additionally helps that we foot the invoice. Sadly this 12 months that sort of networking isn’t potential. Nonetheless, we’re bringing you a model new networking expertise. I’ll let you know about that in a second.
Complete Tech Summit will characteristic thought upsetting training. We’ve assembled a committee of TTS attendees, all working integrators, that can assist us craft our content material. At Complete Tech Summit, we’re targeted on serving to integrators run higher companies

- Our keynote will focus on range and recruiting within the AV business. Particularly, we’ll discuss organising training and internship packages directed at recruiting a extra various workforce to your group.
- Our session on promoting software program will cowl all the things from logistics to new alternatives. If an integrator can promote videoconferencing, collaboration, administration, and cybersecurity software program, why can’t they promote advertising automation or buyer administration software program as nicely? We’ll focus on the place the road falls.
- Advertising and Communications VP Gina Sansivero will current on advertising ideas for integration corporations. Making a pipeline of purchasers is necessary, however equally necessary is staying in contact and reminding them of all you need to supply.
- Lastly, our panel on new know-how will cowl all the newest potential choices for integrators. Particularly useful this 12 months, when workplaces, colleges, eating places, and all public areas are experiencing fast transformation.
The most important draw of Complete Tech Summit, frankly, is the VIP Peer-to-Peer Networking Teams. That is the chance I used to be referring to above. It presents an opportunity to simulate that TTS expertise even in an age of COVID.
All TTS attendees can be positioned into VIP Peer-to-Peer Networking Teams. These are Slack channels with a variety of integrator friends, the place you may search council, recommendation, new alternatives, ask for options, ask for assist, or simply joke round about how clueless some purchasers will be. Our staff will immediate dialogue by posting the most recent articles, research, info, and information. Any member can convey up a subject at any time.

It’s an area to community together with your friends as a result of you may’t see them at occasions like Complete Tech Summit. It’s a spot to change concepts as a result of solely integrators perceive the mixing enterprise. It’s a possibility to make new buddies, mentors, and companions within the business.
