9 Reasons to Attend BLC, According to Attendees

By Chuck Wilson

There’s nothing we enjoy more than hearing about how our Business & Leadership Conference helped an integrator solve a sales challenge, improve revenue, build a growth strategy, or develop a new business idea.

The 18th annual Business & Leadership Conference (BLC) is headed to Dallas, TX, on Feb. 25-27, 2016, and there’s still time for you to register at a steeply discounted price (hurry – prices go up on Jan. 5, 2016). But with so many professional development opportunities to choose from, why BLC? We asked previous attendees what they gained from BLC, and here’s what they had to say:

  1. The level and content of speakers is excellent. CaTECH actually contracted one of the speakers to provide business consulting services as a result of BLC. Additionally, I was impressed with the participants’ business candor. We wholeheartedly recommend the conference to business leaders in the low-voltage industry.” -Doug Hanson, CaTECH Systems
  2. “BLC is a great opportunity to network with industry colleagues, share ideas, and learn from subject-matter experts. I highly recommend it to anyone who is seeking to grow their business.” -Stephen Kohler, Shure Inc.

    This event is invaluable to the success of young career individuals like myself. Thank you very much for everything you do for the industry.” -Kristina Johnson, Advance Technology

  3. “We gained an overwhelming amount of information that will allow us to continue our growth. We will now be able to focus on a few key initiatives as we move forward. The workshops were great, the speakers were incredible, and the other owner/operators really welcomed us. ​” -Kristian Castro, Avant Systems Integration
