PHOENIX — More than 250 systems integration professionals met here at the 15th annual National Systems Contractors Association (NSCA) Business & Leadership Conference (BLC) to discuss strategies to create a profitable business despite a number of transformations affecting their business.
Held Feb. 21-23, attendees participated in sessions geared to help them improve their business life cycles, create leadership among their employees and management teams, and utilize economic factors to administer logical business decisions. Many integration companies used the conference to kick off their strategic planning meetings.
“The event was business altering,” says John Greene, vice president of sales and marketing, Advanced AV. “It included a wonderful agenda with informative, challenging and pertinent speakers who delivered business solution on industry issues ranging from economic to marketing, strategic and motivational. If you are involved in the communication industry, you need to consider this conference if you want to stay relevant. The peer networking alone was worth any expense.”
In addition to the numerous networking opportunities, more than 60 golfers participated in the NSCA Education Foundation Golf Tournament.
“I am overwhelmed by the response from our attendees, sponsors, and speakers this year,” NSCA Executive Director Chuck Wilson says. “We truly heard how this was the best event yet and hearing from a couple of our Excellence in Business panelists that they incorporated strategies learned from this conference and improved profits by 50% — it is exciting to realize the impact this conference has on our integrators success.”
NSCA will host the 2014 BLC Feb. 27 to March 1 in Dallas at the Four Seasons Las Colinas. Interested parties can register here.
