‘Tis the season for gathering with friends and family and this year feels especially special because of the limited human interaction we’ve had over the past year. Or is it years now? It feels like years. While Thanksgiving is just around the corner, the type of gathering we are referring to is IT Nation in Orlando this month.
If you are not familiar with this event, it is the annual ConnectWise convention held in Orlando Florida where IT professionals get together to taut their wares, discuss new technologies, and have a great time being social. We’ll get to that social part in a minute, but first, let’s cover the basics.
As an MSP you’ve likely planned your trip already, but if you’re a first-timer, or have forgotten how to “conference”, we’ll expect it will go something like this. You arrive in Orlando and settle in, swerving among the buzz in the hotel of the vendors getting set up. Try to get a sneak peek at swag and booth setups, there’s a giddiness in the air, right? You’ve looked at the schedule of events – there is a lot to take in, but you’ll figure it out around the one or two breakout sessions that you know that you don’t want to miss. You’ve got your backpack out, your alarm is set, comfortable shoes ready to go, and tonight you’ll get a good night’s sleep so that you’re ready to go tomorrow.
But wait. Can we stop you for a minute? Quick question: Do you have a plan? Because while yes, a gathering is good, feeling like you’ve made the best use of that precious time is GREAT.
Before you walk onto the conference room floor, write down three things:
- What challenge are my client’s repeatedly dealing with?
- Am I addressing them affectively?
- What three products do I want to add to my offering?
Having an idea of what you need will make your time “shopping the floor” much more effective. And it will give you questions to ask and get answered when you visit a booth. If the vendor can’t answer them, then it might not be a good fit and you can move on to someone who might fit the bill better for your needs at this time.

And speaking of old-fashioned, when you’re at our booth, be sure to enter the raffle for our cocktail smoking box so that you can raise a glass with the ‘other kind of old-fashioned’! We’ll be raffling that beauty off on Thursday at 6 pm.
We’ll also be hosting a cybersecurity breakout session on Thursday, November 11th at 11:45 am with our CEO Art Gross, who will be discussing the ingredients that you need to transform your security stack in order to face today’s threat landscape.
