A few weeks after attending the Spring 2017 Midsize Enterprise Summit (MES) in Nashville, I wanted to share some of my experience as a first-time sponsor and attendee.
Avanxo has a long history of delivering cloud transformation services to large and medium-sized companies in Latin America. Thus, our participation in this event was a great opportunity for us to discover new partnering opportunities with companies in the United States.
Overall MES proved to be a great networking opportunity for CIOs and IT leaders across hundreds of Midsize companies. Beyond the networking, the event had some very interesting and educational keynote presentations that covered topics ranging from the latest IT technology trends from some of the sponsors, all the way to how to foster loyalty from our employees and customers. Additionally, attendees had an opportunity to also meet with Gartner analysts to gain key insights on trends, research, and strategies that would be very valuable to any tech executive.
The event also had a very large Solutions Pavilion, which allowed dozens of sponsors to showcase their latest IT services and products to attendees throughout the 2-day conference. Avanxo was able to join five other Colombian companies in the ProColombia booth to present some of the great technology development coming out of Colombia, including companies that specialize in mobile app development and big-data solutions. This placed Avanxo in great company during the event.
To me, the most interesting and unique part of the event was their Interactive Boardrooms. In between the keynotes and the solutions pavilion, the IT leaders got to sit in a boardroom with 15 of their peers from different companies and go through 30-minute presentations from some of the sponsors. During this event, I was able to present Avanxo’s near-shore Salesforce services value proposition to a room with 16 executives from companies that ranged from Healthcare solution providers to non-profits and even some business services providers. Overall it was great to interact with these leaders and exchange ideas with them on how to better support their businesses in the future while continuing to share and showcase our experience and story.
After participating in this event, we are looking forward to partnering with some of the IT leaders we met during the event to build some new success stories to showcase next time!Contact us
