With the looming end of the year approaching, it’s time for businesses to evaluate their accomplishments and also look forward to the future. So much happens over the course of a year. It’s hard to keep track of where we are or how far deviated we actually are from “the plan” we had established 10 months ago. On top of that, we need to get our act together to prepare a new plan for 2015. Needless to say, we could use a chance to take a step back and regroup. Well, here’s that chance.
Network Center, Inc. is hosting their annual nVision technology conference on November 20th. nVision 2014 gives attendees a chance to talk directly to vendors, get questions answered, generate new ideas, connect with others, and of course, enjoy free food and drink. For some that’s not enough and they may need a bit more information on this technology conference.
So we’ve compiled a list of the top 5 reasons to attend nVision 2014. If these items don’t help Humpty Dumpty fall to our side of the fence, well, then we’ll just find a different way to get you there (short of kidnapping of course).
1. Educational, not “Salesy”
We all know how the typical sales pitch goes. In many cases, it’s the highlight to our days…or not. The purpose behind nVision is to stray away from telling you what you should buy or what your organization needs. You’re a professional and know what you/your company needs in most cases. We’ve asked our vendors to strictly take an educational approach to the event. They’ve been asked to provide a topic to discuss. They are going to present instead of pitch their company and their solutions. Will you still hear information on how they stack against their competitors? Absolutely, but at least you don’t have to leave behind any contact information in fear of being hounded after the day is over.
2. Peer to Peer Networking
An underrated aspect to the day is the chance to connect with the other attendees. We’ll see IT managers, IT administrators, executives, business owners, and other positions from a wide spectrum of industries. This is a great opportunity for you to learn about technology from other IT professionals. Learn who is utilizing what technology for what purpose. Embark in a discussion with no pressure from any vendor or NetWork Center, Inc. staff, but just good friendly conversation to learn how to enhance your business or improve your current state of technology. Bring several business cards, an open mind, and let the networking flow.
3. “Choose your own adventure” agenda
What fun is it to be told what to do and when to be there? What if you’re not interested in the topic being presented? That more or less leads to an opportunity to pass that terribly difficult Angry Birds or Candy Crush level or a chance to sneak in a quick post lunch nap in the back row. That sounds more like college now that we say it aloud. Instead we’re giving you the chance to pick and choose which sessions you‘d like to attend. Nobody wins if we have rooms full of bored attendees. We want to see you engaged and captivated throughout the day. We want to see you run to the open bar during the social because “my brain hurts from so much learning.” So I encourage you to check out the agenda for nVision 2014. Find the topics that interest you and get the most out of your day. Yes, you’ll just have to wait on that Candy Crush level just one more day.
4. Sneak Peek into Tech Trends for 2015
So in my spare time, I’m totally hitting up Google for what’s coming in technology or what big IT trends we can expect in the near future. Oh wait, no, that’s not the case at all. Between work and life, we know it’s difficult to stay caught up on our own lives today, much less what’s on the horizon in the tech world. Let us help you. We’ll spend time in the morning laying out the top technology trends for 2015 to get you back in the know so you can try to keep you ahead of the curve. We all know end of the year means visiting budgets and planning, so we want to arm you with some key IT points to keep an eye on for the next calendar year. If you find yourself on the edge of your seat from anticipation for the next 2 weeks, I’m sorry.
5. It’s Free
They say save the best for last. Well, here it is. You get all of the above at no cost to you. Food is obviously a key component to any conference and we promise to provide you with enough food throughout the day for breakfast, lunch and appetizers during our social. Our hope is you leave with a full mind and stomach. You’ll also receive a gadget/gizmo upon arriving at the registration table, chances to win some awesome door prizes at the end of the day, and oh yes, we will provide drinks during the social. If you must, have the closest co-worker of yours pinch you, but this is no dream. NetWork Center, Inc. truly appreciates your time and willingness to attend our event, so we want to be sure you are well cared for. This event is created with you in mind. To enable and equip you with information to make the best decisions possible for your organization. The value is in the information presented and to show you that, we provide this day at no cost to you. So please, join us for nVision 2014. Whether you’re a long standing customer or just curious as to whom NetWork Center, Inc. is and if/how can we help you with your technology needs, we’d like to see you there.
