The Retail IT VAR Of The Future conference on May 17-18 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL will include a speaker lineup with 300+ combined years of retail and hospitality IT experience. A total of 21 speakers will be on stage throughout the two-day event to share their expertise on POS-as-a-Service, Payment/Data Security, Customer Experience, and Mobile POS. The agenda will include a half-day session on each of these four main topics.
“The Business Solutions team knew we had big shoes to fill with our speaker lineup after 2015 Retail IT VAR Of The Future attendees gave the education a 100% satisfaction rating,” said Business Solutions editor-in-chief Mike Monocello. “We invited some of the most innovative and cutting-edge VARs and ISVs in the industry to share their real-world success stories on stage this. These speakers embrace being a total solutions provider and are eager to educate their peers at this event.”
In addition to the VAR and ISV executives who will be on stage, Monocello will also interview business valuation expert Jim Kahrs during an opening keynote session. Kahrs has more than 29 years of experience helping solutions providers understand and grow the value of their business.
“We want the VARs, MSPs, and ISVs in the audience to understand the true value of their business and how to increase that value,” Monocello said. “Even if you are not looking for an exit strategy right now, running a business with greater profit margins will set you up nicely no matter what the future brings.”
