Coined by ConnectWise in 2009, the "IT Nation" represents a collection of channel partners, vendors and IT solutions providers working together to achieve the highest level of profitability to ensure business success. Now in its seventh year, the IT Nation Summit for the first time is available to all the members of the IT Nation - not just ConnectWise partners - for an opportunity to learn, network and collaborate with fellow IT solutions providers.
Held at the Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek November 9-11, IT Nation provides attendees with the opportunity to connect with peers, learn about new solutions available in the marketplace and adopt go-to-market solutions that will improve their businesses today and well into the future. IT Nation 2011 features keynote speakers, a solutions pavilion, nearly 100 breakout sessions and new Hands-On Labs to add even more value to the IT Nation experience.
“IT Nation has served as an annual meeting of ConnectWise Partners to get together and share their successes with one another,” said Arnie Bellini, ConnectWise CEO. “When we coined the term “IT Nation” our vision was to include all solution providers as members, whether they are a ConnectWise partner or not. At ConnectWise, we believe that we all succeed together, so we are excited to be bringing everyone together at IT Nation 2011.”
Bellini is one of the keynote speakers at IT Nation 2011 set to inform, inspire and entertain attendees. The other keynote speaker is futurist Daniel Burrus, one of the world's leading technology forecasters and business strategists. A strategic advisor to leaders from Fortune 500 companies and the author of six books, including The New York Times and Wall Street Journal best seller Flash Foresight, the highly acclaimed book Technotrends, and a monthly newsletter, Burrus was called one of the top three business gurus in the nation by the New York Times. Other speakers at the event include industry icons Paul Dippell, Gary Pica, and Steven S. Little.
