Our team enjoyed TAG in Austin and we’ve got some highlights to share with you!

Technology Assurance Group (TAG) hosted their big event on November 7 – 8 in Austin, TX focused on Planning Your Success in 2020. TAG is an organization of over 100 leading MSPs and other technology companies. Members benefit from best business and management practices, advanced sales training programs and processes, in-depth financial analysis and industry benchmarking, professionally led peer group interaction, marketing and lead generation programs, and strategic partnerships with technology manufacturers. Here’s our recap of the event:

Notes from the Conference Floor

We have exhibited at TAG events before and once again we found the event to be worth our time and effort. This was the first time TAG did all the regions in one location, normally they host three smaller meetings. We liked this approach better and hope to see them do more events in this format. There were around 70 people in attendance, which is about what we expected for the meeting. While this number is lower than an average-sized conference that we attend, the ‘quality’ of attendee was through the roof! Just about every attendee was a decision maker which made for great conversations. The size of the show and venue made it easy to move around the floor, while still being compact enough to be perfect for networking.

The conference had a lot of good speakers and information about security and the importance of making sure you have the appropriate insurance coverage. MSPs are under attack and a lot of the speakers had real life stories and examples of things that happened in their business and how we can learn from them. While we were not their target audience, we still found the sessions interesting and informative. It was great to see the level of value being provided to event attendees.

Networking Opportunities

We hosted a welcome party at Burnsides Tavern on Austin’s famous 6th street. The event was very well attended, and we were able to connect with a lot of the TAG members who we had not had a chance to meet in person. We had the opportunity to chat with Zultys, Sherweb, I-Nett, Watchguard, CTI, Technolink, and more! Special thank you to all members and partners who attended for making it a great evening!

The greatest aspect of working with TAG leadership is their commitment to helping us connect with everyone in the TAG family. Tim Schatz (TAG Executive VP) and Ryan Mulvany (VP of Member & Partner Relations) have gone above and beyond to support the Imagit team and help spread our message within the network.
