Today is the last day of The Partner Connections Event in Tampa, but there is still a full day of educational opportunities ahead. Yesterday's highlights included keynote speaker Joe Mechlinski. Mechlinski received many kudos in the social community for his timely and inspiring discussion which highlighted the theme of growing business within this competitive economy, regardless.
Then last night, we all met for another exciting night of mingling at the Expo Reception. The first of many expo receptions as we enter into a full week of User Group events. I think the stats I heard were that only 18 or so TPCE attendees weren't attending one of the User Group events this week. That's pretty phenomenal that we get to keep these conversations from TPCE going throughout the week.
Yesterday, was also booth set up day for us User Group exhibitors. I must say, but I'm a little subjective, that the Data Masons booth looks great! Along with other members of the Data Masons team, we'll be ready and waiting for you to stop by (booth #427.)
Today, I'm looking forward to some great TPCE sessions led by experts within the community, especially those led by our valued partners! While TPCE may be winding down today, there is a wealth of information yet to come from the event. Stay tuned in with the Twitter hashtag #TPCE13 to get a snapshot of today's happenings.
Booth duty, educational sessions, and today - speaker! Join me today at one of my two sessions that talk to leveraging social media to 1) increase sales leads and 2) convert customers into lifelong advocates. Then this afternoon, join EDI expert Glenn McPeak for his NAVUG Partner Showcase focusing on the cost-saving opportunities presented by Vendor EDI.
The day rounds out with booth duty at tonight's User Group Expo Hall Opening. With a weeks like this, multi-tasking sure is a good trait to have!
Hope to see all you there at booth #427!
