SYMCO Showcase Features SCN IT User Panel Discussions

SYMCO Showcase Features SCN IT User Panel Discussions

This week SYMCO launches its 2014 Regional Technology Showcase program with the first event in Fairfax, VA. A little bit of snow in the DC area didn't keep area integrators and consultants away from the technology exhibits, a full education and training program, networking breakfasts and lunches, and of course the fabulous new SCN Technology User Panel Discussion followed by the InfoComm Cocktail Reception.

If you’re closer to Philadelphia this Thursday, March 27, come on over to the King of Prussia event. The SYMCO Regional Technology Showcase is open to all integrators, VARs, consultants and technology users.

Panelists for the SCN Technology User Panel, taking place from 3.30 p.m. to 5.30 p.m. on both Tuesday and Thursday this week, include top-level IT decision makers from major players in corporate, education, government, and healthcare spaces. They’ll reveal observations and insights about the product and service solutionsthat they are using today, and those that they are planning for in the future. We’ll also discuss what’s important to CIOs and CTOs in a partnership, and how you better align yourself as a future partner with them.

Here’s who we’ve got on the panelist lineup for each event:
