ITEX 2020 Seeking Speakers Who Rise to the Occasion, Educates, Illuminates and Shines

The ITEX 2020 team is calling for EXPERTS in their field! Education is the foundation of the ITEX Exposition. Participating as a speaker, a moderator, or on a panel will offer you the opportunity to engage attendees to think, interact, and change the game!

ITEX continues to build on the theme of “Own the Office, Piece by Piece.” To help Business Solutions Providers (BSPs) grow and diversify their portfolio of offerings, the ITEX 2020 educational tracks will focus on traditional topics, while driving into the future of our industry. There will be sessions for:

Managed IT                                                        Security

Unified Communications                             Managed Print

Document Management                              Smart Office

Reseller Automation                                      Sales and Operations

The perfect presenter is one who can motivate attendees and provide them with direction for achieving the results they need. It’s the mind share of successful dealers and VARs willing to share their knowledge that continues to drive our industry forward. Are you up for sitting on a panel and discussing policy, creativity (thinking outside the box), forecasting, and technology? Can you guide an audience on how to connect with opportunities?

“Effective communication is 20% what you know and 80% how you feel about what you know.”– Jim Rohn

A few topic ideas presenters may want to conceptualize a dealer panel session around are:

  • How MSPs Can Better Compete with Cloud Providers and Reclaim Market Share
  • Managed IT: Buy or Build It…The Merits and Pitfalls of Each
  • How to Profitably Add UC & Telecom as a Service Offering
  • Wallet Share Growth: Adding New Product Categories
  • What to Expect When Your Company Gets Purchased and How to Prepare
  • The Cost of Downtime is Staggering! Backup & Disaster Recovery
  • Our Digital Workplaces are Talking; It’s Time to Listen

The above are simply suggestions. Create your own panel around a dynamic subject matter that will continue resonating with attendees as they head home to implement what they’ve learned at ITEX.

“The success of your presentation will be judged not by the knowledge you send but by what the listener receives.” – Lilly Walters

The topics and presentations should not promote, directly or indirectly, a company, product, or service. But, by participating in delivering valuable information, it does bring increased visibility and credibility to yourself, your organization, and issues that are important to you and the industry.

If you are interested in sharing your expertise, visit the ITEX Call for Speakers page and fill out the application. The deadline for submitting topics is November 15th.
