This precisely structured and carefully managed event offers sponsors pre-scheduled, guaranteed high-quality engagements with the biggest, best and fastest growing technology integrators.

The Summit schedule guarantees one-on-one meetings with your choices from the 400+ pre-screened decision makers from the nation’s top integration firms — and arms its vendor staff with detailed guest profile information in advance to help prep them for conversations to move the needle on sales.

Sponsors have complete flexibility to target market segments (custom, commercial and security integration) or mix and match guest engagements for a comprehensive approach.

Hosted Style Event

Flights, hotel accommodations, food and beverage and registration costs for business leaders of top companies are paid for and arranged by the Summit producer, AE Ventures. In recognition of these benefits, guests contractually commit to attend the Summit from start to finish and follow a detailed itinerary of activities at the event, including scheduled meetings with sponsors. Primary benefits for guests include the collection of business best practices from peers and determining how to expand and improve their technology strategies.

Benefits

Engage Deeply with High-Value Prospects

Select Your Targets
Pick-and-choose the number and type of engagements your company wants among the VIP-level decision-makers hosted at our events. You can address multiple channels/market sectors or just one.

 

Service That’s Above & Beyond
AE Ventures takes sponsor support and deliverables a leap ahead. We work with sponsors to identify meaningful goals and devise engagement strategies that will yield the desired results.

 

Save Time & Money
Add up the time and money required to connect in-person with your biggest and best prospects across the nation and compare it to the efficiency of meeting with dozens of VIP prospects in just 2.5 days—the savings created by sponsoring an AE Ventures event becomes clear.
