The second-annual Pivot to Profit event, hosted by NSCA, PSA Security and SYNNEX, will take place on September 28-29, 2017, at the Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare Hotel & Conference Center in Rosemont IL. At Pivot to Profit, some major names in technology will teach integrators how to “pivot” to take advantage of new revenue opportunities.
Keynote speaker James Waddell, Cannon Design’s Managing Principal of Digital Buildings, will share what Cannon Design clients expect today from their building technology, and what the A/E community expects from integrators as a result. Attendees will find out what clients really want when it comes to IoT, XaaS, intelligent buildings, virtual reality and artificial intelligence.
Other sessions include: “What to Measure for Better RMR” (Nick Points, CharTec); “Don’t Take on Cyber Risks” (Rob Simopoulos, Launch Security); “What XaaS Will Bring in the Future” (Peter Luff, Science Logic and Sean Devereaux, Tech Electronics); “The Lowdown on Financing for Managed Services” (Lee Rozeboom, GreatAmerica); and “Are You Selling or Building?” (Paul Cronin, Cronin Corp.).
Pivot to Profit will also feature an innovation hall made up of companies that offer services and solutions to help integrators grow recurring revenue. Technology sponsors and innovation discussion leaders include: 3M, alliantgroup, AMI Entertainment, Atlas IED, Audinate, AVNation, CharTec, Christie, Corporate Sales Coaches, EMERgency24, Google Cloud, GreatAmerica, Harman, Indarra Cyber Security, Insperity, Launch Security, Layered Solutions, LG, Mood Media, Navigate Management Consulting, OneBeacon Technology Insurance, Play Network, Potter, ScienceLogic, Secure Global Solutions, Solutions360, SpinetiX, StockroomExchange.com and Videxio.
“Now in its second year, excitement for this event is building,” said Chuck Wilson, NSCA Executive Director. “Pivot to Profit has already helped many of our members create their own roadmap guiding how they’ll implement managed services and anticipate client needs down the road. If integrators spend two days at this event, they’ll walk away knowing what they need to do to continue to stay relevant.”
Registration for the two-day event costs $495. For more information, or to register, visit the Pivot to Profit website or contact NSCA at 800.446.6722.
