The 20 Vision Conference was held in Dallas, Texas at The W Hotel to educate and connect with member MSPs of The 20 and valued sponsor partners. The two-day event occurred July 13 – 14, 2017, and focused on the vision, education, and growth of their membership, as well as celebrated successes that occurred throughout the year. The schedule included keynote speeches and live demo sessions from sponsors Kaseya, IT Glue, ConnectBooster, and Clarity Advisory Group. The first day ended with, ‘AMPED’, a rooftop party celebration sponsored exclusively by leading VoIP provider, Cytracom.
The 20 is a best-in-class business development group for MSPs whose concentration on lead generation, a unique sales model, and scalability has made a noticeable impact in the IT industry. “The difference between success and a dream is execution,” said CEO, Tim Conkle in the opening remarks, “so the goal has to not only be to visualize your goals, but to execute on them to create a future for your business.” He later highlighted member MSPs of The 20 who were ranked on this year’s MSP Mentor 501 ‘Top Ranked MSPs’ Global List, and were recognized as top managed service providers -- a testament to the success and strength of the group.
The conference provided technical training and exclusive offerings for members of The 20, and delivered knowledge on how to maximize the tools that have been standardized within the group. The schedule also included sessions on lead generation, sales, and scale, and informative speeches from industry leaders and experts. Fred Voccola, CEO of Kaseya, joined Tim Conkle on stage to provide insights and discuss the road ahead with an emphasis on cyber-security.
