I am really looking forward to Scaling New Heights starting this Sunday, so over the next few days and into the start of the conference will be reviewing the various sponsors who are exhibiting at the conference. I want to encourage everyone attending to take time to visit each an every booth at the conference for two distinct reasons.
First and foremost you might learn something; in reality the exhibit hall provides a wealth of information. Chances are, if you don't already, you will in the near future have a need for some add-on, add-in or specialized 3rd party product or application (APP) to either meet the needs of one of your clients, or perhaps even your own practice. Take the time to learn, at least a little, about every product and service being exhibited; you can't possibly walk away with an in-depth understanding of every product, but you either might find that solution you need, or at least have enough information stored in those little gray-cells that when the time comes, 'click, the light bulb' goes on and you can tell yourself, "I saw the perfect solution at Scaling New Heights and it's ___________________."
The second reason to visit every booth is to say 'Thank you', even if you don't realize it, the exhibitors are the life blood of conferences like Scaling New Heights, that's why Joe refers to them as 'Sponsors' (rather than exhibitors, that is my word.) Without the 100+ Sponsors Scaling New Heights wouldn't be possible, or if it was, it would cost you the attendees 3 to 5 times what you now pay for registration. Let's face it the sponsors pay the bills that makes all of this great education, training and conference resources available for the rest of us. So don't be afraid to walk right up to each and every Sponsor and say 'Thank You' for being here; trust me, it wall mean a lot to every one of them.
And from those of us here at Intuitive Accountant, a big thank you as well to all the Scaling New Heights sponsors. (PS - I have randomly chosen the order of sponsors in each of the articles we will be publishing.)
