First-Ever Pivot to Profit Conference Attracts Biggest Names in Technology

Google, Intel, LG, Quantum, Stanley Healthcare, and others will educate integrators about the future of the industry

CEDAR RAPIDS, IA, Sept. 22, 2016 — NSCA is excited to announce several big technology players at the first-ever Pivot to Profit event, designed to offer valuable advice to integrators about “pivoting” to explore new revenue opportunities.

Pivot to Profit will take place on Oct. 25-26, 2016, at the Sheraton DFW Airport Hotel in Dallas, TX. The conference is designed to help integrators learn ways to obtain new repeat customers, build solid recurring revenue streams, and transform to a services-focused organization. This two-day event is made possible through a partnership between NSCA, PSA Security, and SYNNEX.

Education sessions at Pivot to Profit include:

  • Are You Ready for IoT? Impacts of Disruptive Technology (led by Intel)
  • Doing Business in the Cloud – and Making Money Doing So
  • Making Service Data Come Alive
  • Financing Aligned with Changing Business Models
  • Becoming a Managed Services Provider – Don’t Look Back!

The Pivot to Profit conference will also feature an innovation hall unlike any other. Instead of showcasing commoditized products and standalone hardware, it includes companies that offer unique services and solutions to integrators wanting to grow recurring revenue. Technology sponsors and innovation discussion leaders include: alliantgroup, AtlasIED, Avaya, Biamp, Bosch, DMX, Global Technology Finance, Google, Harman, Herman, Infinity Sound, LG, Mood Media, Play Network, Quantum, Solutions360, Stanley Healthcare, and Windy City Wire. Integrators can’t afford to miss what these companies are developing in terms of future technology.

“Pivot to Profit identifies ways for integrators to adapt to change without disrupting existing revenue streams or other profit centers,” says Chuck Wilson, NSCA executive director. “This event will guide the systems integration industry through the steps needed to move forward and make a real difference in this changing landscape.”

Registration for the two-day event is $495 for NSCA and PSA members, and $695 for non-members. For more information, or to register, contact NSCA at 800.446.6722 or visit www.nsca.org/p2p.
