Top 3 things learned at ITNation Connect ’19
I have not missed an ITNation since 2007. This was the biggest compared to the 100 of us in a hotel in Tampa in 2007. ConnectWise rewarded the attendee veterans with very nice and thoughtful gifts. Connect with me in LinkedIn and I will tell you. Much has changed at ConnectWise since the acquisition earlier this year.
- Jason Magee is an excellent CEO. The keynote was very well received with direction and strategy addressed. He is not new to the ITN ecosystem.
- The announcement of the acquisition of ITBoost and Continuum was not a surprise to many of my colleagues. Is it possible to keep that big of a secret these days?
- ITNation Gives is a “must see” worthwhile event. This is the second year we participated in ITN Gives. Approx. 30 of us went to the Orlando Day Nursery where we helped garden, paint and make games for the children and a lot more.
A recent rumor is that the goal is to get ITNation to 20,000 attendees in three years. With a little under 3,900 last week in Orlando, this is an aggressive goal. With acquisitions and consolidation of shows, it will be interesting if this can happen.
