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 [...]

Channel Partners Evolution 2019 Recap

Our team is back from Channel Partners Evolution 2019 and we’ve got some highlights to share with you! Channel Partners Evolution (CPEvolution) was held September 9 to September 12 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC. The channel tech conference was attended by 3000 of the industry’s leading solution providers, vendors, distributors, IT professionals and media, with over 150 exhibitors. Here’s our recap: Notes from the Conference Floor Though it didn’t always feel like it with the trade show floor being open for 11 hour days, the Imagit booth was busy. We met a lot of new people in the new channel and found several prospective new partnerships. We walked away with over 100 new contacts from scans at the booth, and business cards acquired throughout the show. One common theme was channel convergence. It’s affecting different companies in different ways, but the one thing that resonates across the board is a need to add more capabilities to take on new types of projects and add more value to customers.  Imagit is well positioned to help with this need thanks to our team of 400 network and systems engineers + smarthands who can almost any project need for partners across the US and Canada. The demand for more ‘as a service’ offerings also remains prevalent, and we are feeling very excited to launch our new LAN as a Service (LANaaS) offering after some great conversations with channel partners. If you didn’t get a chance to learn about that, we are offering [...]

ChannelCon 2019 Recap

Our team enjoyed ChannelCon in Las Vegas and we’ve got some highlights to share with you! The 2019 CompTIA ChannelCon took place in Las Vegas, NV at The Bellagio on Aug 5 – 7, 2019. Here’s our recap of the event: Notes from the Conference Floor The 3 day event was very well attended and we were pleased to network with many of our current partners as well as new leads. The Executive Council run breakout sessions were also well attended and participants were very active, coming up with many great ideas during the roundtables, flipchart sessions, and think-tank exercises. The legendary Shaquille O’Neal was the keynote speaker, and the audience was very engaged with his session. Shaq discussed his career, current business interests, and love for tech. Read more about the keynote on CompTIA’s website.  Many people overlook this “larger-than-life” character as just that…a character due to his jovial personality and relentless wit and comic relief during his broadcasts as a color-commentator in live sporting events. Yet, the former backboard breaker is quite the business mogul in the tech space and has spoken at other tech conferences in addition to ChannelCon! Overall we were extremely happy with this event and it was great to meet so many people who were really interested in speaking with us.  The CompTIA community continues to be one of the most engaged audiences we encounter, which is why we have boothed for the last 3 years. Our partnership with MSPs is a logical marriage where 2 entities that [...]

Our team enjoyed TAG in Orlando and we’ve got some highlights to share with you! The 19th annual TAG Convention was hosted by Technology Assurance Group (TAG) in Orlando, Florida at the Rosen Plaza on April 7-10, 2019. Here’s our recap of the event: Joining TAG TAG members came from all across the United States to meet in Orlando for the annual convention.

TAG members provide assistance to each other and refer clients to other members when they can not service them, allowing members to grow together through combined efforts. TAG gets hundreds of applications each year from all kinds of technology companies hoping to join the organization, and this year Imagit was one of the new companies introduced into the network. As part of the approval process, we provided references, quoted potential projects, and joined several calls with TAG executives. Imagit's Tyler O’Brien ran point for the process and within two months of application we had been approved and been asked to exhibit at the upcoming convention. Notes from the Conference Floor We have been extremely pleased with our reception by TAG and at the event! While at the conference we were able to meet many TAG members who have been a part of the [...]
