Imagine beautiful Minnesota in May and four full days of a high-level conference where you can network, learn, and share your passion for the IT community. That’s what you get at The Midwest Management Summit (MMS). Because the conference is purposely capped to just 750 attendees, everybody feels comfortable and there’s less of a “small fish in a big ocean” atmosphere. 1E has been a platinum sponsor since day one and now, in its 4th year, we are humbled and excited to sponsor and attend this year as well. It’s been a great conference to attend and see blossom to the experience it is now.
As the Senior Account Manager at 1E, I have attended so many industry events over the years. By far, MMS is one of my favorites. Not only because of the attendees (which include dozens of MVPs), but the community environment is truly special.
I love to be able to see familiar faces and friends, but one of the greatest joys of attending MMS is meeting new people. If this is your first year attending, please stop by our booth for our premium giveaways and say hello! One of the more exciting things we have to talk about this year is Tachyon. If you haven’t had a chance to check out this revolutionary new product, you won’t want to miss our demos. (We also want to hear your feedback!)
We have introduced so many new initiatives this year to keep our community engaged. One such program is MVP Monday. By highlighting a specific MVP each Monday, we are able to showcase their skills, knowledge, and advice. By having so many people join the program, we are able to give back to our audience who have come to rely on us for our expertise.
I know my own team is always incredibly excited to attend MMS. I practically have to beat them off with a stick because they all want to go! However, I still have to leave some people in the field. I know if we let them, all our solutions engineers, consultants, and technical architects would attend.
As is tradition, I will be hosting our 1E MMS Party. This year it will be on Wednesday night. (location is still TBD, but check out events page for updates) We are thrilled to be able to bring you Tachyon and talk about other endeavors for the rest of the year. You’ll want to register now because once those slots are filled, they’re filled!
