Enriching the Customer Experience
Technology, Innovation, and the Future of Business
March 4 - 5, 2015 | Fluno Center | Madison, WI
The Fusion advisory board works closely with Platinum sponsors to develop a session through which your organization can display its knowledge and expertise at an executive level. Not only do you have the opportunity to present in front of the Fusion audience, but you also benefit from interaction with executive advisers who help you refine and target your message. These are not to be used as sales presentations and slides (if used at all) will be limited to 10. All topics are vetted through the advisory board for interest levels, relevance, commercial message and appeal. See Speaker Guidelines for more information.
On March 4th meet with a group of senior-level attendees from end-user organizations (30 – 40 CIOs, VP of IT, CTO, IT Directors). This briefing will open up a two-way strategic dialog between you and key attendees and allow you to further demonstrate your expertise. Your presentation should not exceed half the time to allow for the last half to be CIO dialog. These are not to be used as sales presentations and slides (if used at all) will be limited to 5. In the past, the most well-received presentations had no slides at all. The advisory board will vet your presentation and topic for relevancy and commercial messaging. Vendor/Sponsor attendance is limited during other company sessions due to seating availability. See Speaker Guidelines for more information.
Introduce your company and welcome the attendees. Branding on tables, etc.
You'll be involved in calls and/or meetings with members of the advisory board to develop your topic and message. See Speaker Guidelines for more information.
