Themed event is Mission Possible, because event technology makes great events possible. “When you enjoy a good spy movie what do you see? Glamorous locations, elegant parties, thrilling stunts, expensive race cars, spy tech gadgets, helicopters flying off….well when you walk into the next TS Tech Summit in Vegas you may just feel like you entered into a spy movie…, ”Quote from Ann Windham. Planners will be able to get hands on training with spy-like gadgets and exotic cars from the “World’s Largest and Fastest Selection of Supercars at Dream Racing” says Brandy Falconer, Director of Sales.
“Ann seeks out the best tech tools and vendors to share with her attendees,” says Michelle Scott, meeting planner with AZZ Inc. “One of the best things about TS Tech Summit is the intimate event setting. The smaller group size creates a better learning environment. I always return with many valuable contacts, new friends and experiences.”
Michael Lynn, co-founder of Global PEC and Professional Trade Show Resources, has attended several TS Tech Summits.
“This is one of the few technology trade shows where I can spend needed time with tech gurus who demonstrate how to apply the tech products immediately to my business,” he says.
“As a company who plans and produces large-scale events, it’s helpful to know we’re investing time and resources at a show with planners who have the same goals, budgets and objectives as our core client base. Since we are a nation-wide provider, the location works great too. The event/meeting planners and executives are expecting to build new relationships and solidify existing ones – and that’s our goal as well. “ Jason Rudoy | Director of Sales metroConnections
Tracy Leparulo, manager of events & sponsorships at EventMobi, calls TS Tech Summit a “one-of-a-kind event.”
“Their intimate, hands-on learning approach is great for anyone seeking to better understand technology and how to incorporate tech into their events and daily operations,” Leparulo says. “That’s why we keep coming back year after year.”
One of the things I love about the TS Tech Summit is how personal the experience is in small groups and that the interactions allow me to build new relationships. One of the things I really enjoy is the Dine Around, we have the choice of Caesars’ Entertainment and 8 MGM Resorts for elegant dining experiences and then escorted to Las Vegas Shows. For example: Cosmopolitan will bring planners to Rabbit.Rose.Lie. with caviar tacos and spontaneous entertainment and Bellagio Hotel, will take our group of 8 to Harvest by Chef Roy Ellamar for Dinner then to see “O” by Cirque du Soleil, what a wow experience!” says Brittany Ryan,MSc | Global Marketing Communications Manager.
